Clever Brownie Gift Idea

Mrs. Fields Secrets Brownie Gifts
Yesterday was National Brownie Day (hooray!) and today I’ve got a great way to celebrate with this clever gift idea. Simply bake your brownies inside cookie cutters to create a darling individual gift. The recipient can enjoy the brownie right away and re-use the cookie cutter forever. I love this idea for teachers, coworkers, ┬áneighbors, and even as a bake sale item. Simply place your cookie cutters on a parchment-lined baking sheet and pour the prepared batter in, about 2/3 full. Bake at 325 degrees until shiny and crackly on top. Allow to cool before removing from the sheet with a spatula.

HINT: Cooking time will be shortened, so keep a close eye on your brownies. Mine baked for 13-15 minutes.

Elf Elementary Cookie Jar Giveaway

2010 Elf Elementary Cookie Jar

2010 Elf Elementary Cookie Jar

“The school bell at Elf Elementary rings every morning at the North Pole, signaling the start of another important day of learning. The little elves file in and begin their studies of elf essentials: toy making, merry-making, and of course, cookie making. Today, there’s a special announcement—if they complete their assignments, Santa himself will stop by to say hello! Everyone stays on task except for Emery Elf, who keeps wandering to the window, hoping for the first glimpse of the jolly man.”

Okay, okay. Before you roll your eyes and groan at this seemingly blatant Christmas post the day after Halloween, hear me out. I am completely in love with this cookie jar and I can’t contain my excitement about it for another minute. If you knew how long I’d been biting my tongue/keyboard, waiting for an appropriate moment to share this with you, you’d be amazed at my months-long streak of self-control. Truthfully, I really wanted to tell you about it in August.

It is one of our 2010 exclusively designed, collectible holiday cookie jars and it is exquisite. The detail of each numbered, hand-painted ceramic will astound you; no detail is overlooked from the snow-capped roof and window tops to the beribboned wreath above the door. It will add so much charm to your holiday display, especially if you have a Christmas village collection. If you don’t have a Christmas village, this keepsake is the perfect place to start.

And because I love you, I’m giving one away! How do you enter to win? Leave me a comment answering this question: What is your most treasured holiday decoration? I can’t wait to read your responses.
