Cookie Gift

   This an easy but yummy gift idea! Who doesn't like homemade cookies? What makes this gift so special is the cute poem attached!
   I helped make these for all the father's at church for Father's Day last year. We made Chocolate Chip Cookies using the Pampered Chef medium cookie scoop (2 tablespoons). We baked them at 375 degrees on parchment covered baking stones for about 15 minutes.
   After cooling completely, each was wrapped individually in pastic wrap. We then attached our cute cookie label with the poem I wrote. The tags were printed on ivory cardstock and cut out using the FISKARS Shapecutting blade and the Vacation-1 (#4863) template (Lens/Sun - 1⅞ inches circle) shown below. (You will need a cutting mat with this as well.)
FISKARS Vacation-1 TemplateI think a 2 inch punch or circle cutter would also work since the cookie labels are 1¾ inch in diameter.

   Here is the cute poem! Please include "by Kim Bennett" if you use it!
A special cookie just for you,
To thank you for the things you do.
It's made with love and tender care,
Both of which you often share.
A little gift which helps us say,
We hope you have a special day!
∼ by Kim Bennett ∼

   Here is another poem that would be cute to use if you make peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses in them. I found this one online... not sure who wrote it.
On this special Father's Day,
We want to share this treat.
A cookie and a kiss for you
Because we think you're neat.
∼ Author Unknown ∼

   I hope you enjoy these gifts ideas!
