Punk Rock Cookie Jar Mixes

Making this delicious and delightful gift from Post Punk Kitchen is as easy as funneling the ingredients for a batch of homemade cookies into a glass jar. This present would be especially personal and enticing if you have an amazing cookie recipe that a far away friend or family member loves. Send them your magic ingredients in a jar and they can fill their home with the happy fragrance of fresh baked cookies before sinking their teeth into a favorite cookie you both made together, even while being far apart!
