Hostess Gifts


Cookie CanWhat’s inside these upcycled scrapbook paper/washi tape/twine wrapped potato chip cans? Cookies! We received some lovely invitations for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, so I made treats for hostess gifts. Here is a recipe my sons LOVED when they were little that’s no-fail and easy to transport. Enjoy, and I wish you a happy time of remembrance with your family and friends. ♥


1/2 cup + 1/3 cup butter

1 cup each sugar and brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon each baking powder, soda, salt, and vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

3 cups crisp rice cereal

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs. Add dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Stir in cereal. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes. Let stand one minute before removing from pan. Makes five dozen.

  1. Many moons ago, as a young teen, I would sometimes spend the night with a wonderful friend and we would bake Ranger cookies together. I do believe I’ll have to try your recipe! Thanks for the warm memories Katherine! 🙂

  2. I love how you recycled those chip containers…brilliant! Stuffing full of Ranger cookies is always a good call 🙂 Thanks for sharing! ~Blessings~

  3. The container is cute and cookies were delish! I shared some of them with our Saturday lunch crowd, then hid the rest away for ME! It was so nice to see you. Next time we’ll have a time to talk more I hope!! Love you – S
