I try to be organized. In my wildest dreams, my resume says "organized and a pre-planner". I'm not either of those things but I do, occasionally, try to be.
This project is one that you need to do ahead, unless you and your family can eat a can of pringles every meal.
Pringles cans make marvelous cookie holders for gifts. They will fit about a dozen round sugar cookies. The can is a little more than 2 1/2 inches wide so I purchased a two inch cookie cutter. After baking, the cookies fit perfectly.
I had a bit of a bow theme going here. . . .
I have a marvelous sugar cookie recipe that takes a bit of effort but is SO worth it, especially around the holidays. I will share it when it gets closer to Christmas.
I try to make these throughout the year because, otherwise, these end up looking all the same. They're quite simple. You need:
Christmas paper - wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
To fit a piece of paper around the can, you need it to measure 10 1/8 inches high and 9 3/4 inches wide. That allows for a tiny bit of overlap at the back.
Cover the paper around your can and then decorate.
I decorate the lids with a homemade "Merry Christmas" tag.
Fill with cookies and deliver!
