Some of the most treasured winter scents are those of holiday baking. Cinderella, having taken care of both herself and her stepsisters for most of her life, is no stranger to creating scrumptious treats.

Brightly frosted spiced cakes, gooey pies, and lighter-than-air meringue cookies have left everyone in the castle too stuffed to eat dinner! But what about her friends outside of the kingdom? With Ariel by the sea and Snow White in a faraway forest, Cinderella was stumped as to how she could share her goodies with everyone else.
Luckily, she came up with the perfect solution – cookies in a jar! Follow Cinderella’s easy instructions to make your own cookies in a jar – the easiest way to share a yummy recipe with your loved ones.
