You may recall those sweet Easter themed cookie cutters I bought recently? They were for an Easter Baking Kit I assembled for an Easter Gift. This Kit is the perfect gift for the budding chef in your family! Team some ingredients with cute biscuit cutters and decorating supplies, and they will be baking up a batch of bunnies in next to no time!
1 large jar
Assorted biscuit cutters
Scrap booking paper
Double sided tape
Ingredients (see below) – plain (all purposed) flour, castor sugar, white chocolate buds, coloured sprinkles, cachous.
Clear cellophane bags
Referring to the recipe below, assemble the ingredients (apart from the butter, egg, and vanilla) and place them in individual cellophane bags. Using your computer, design labels for the bags, print out, and attach to the bags. Place the ingredients and cookie cutters in the jar. Print out the recipe and enclose in the jar. Decorate the jar with a strip of scrap booking paper and attach with double sided tape. Tie a ribbon to the lid to finish.
