If I did, it would be perpetually empty and I’d have to add miles to my daily run. I am unable to resist a cookie!

No will power. I would always steal from the cookie jar! Cookies are my weakness.

I *know* I am having a bad day when the urge to bake cookies washes over me. Sometimes I realize this only as I am adding the butter and vanilla to the mixer! Ha!

She always wanted a certain Shawnee Puss and Boots kitty cookie jar to match her mama’s creamer. Well one day, while at a flee market in Savannah, I saw. Like a diamond in the rough, needle in the haystack. For a hot minute, I think I stole the title of Favorite Child. Now it just sits on the refridgerator at my parent’s house. Oh well!

My grandma had a chocolate chip jar. You could go get handfuls. She’d use them to make beautiful fudge!

She was a great person and treated me like family. Once I found out how very collectible it was, I offered to return it to the “blood relatives”. They insisted I keep it, so now I get a warm feeling every time I see it on the counter. It’s far too precious to me for little hands, so there is also a glass canister cookie jar for actually cookie stealing! Cookie enthusiasts can see what’s in it before taking the lid off. It works out just fine!

It is rare that I make cookies so it only comes out at those times. For the holidays, I have a snowman cookie jar that looks vintage. It’s red hat is the handle. It is very cute and doesn’t hold many cookies either. I usually end up placing the pretty cookies on a tray for the grabbing. I broke my best friend’s, grandmother’s, cookie jar once when I was 17. I felt horrible! I replaced it with one that was very similar but not an exact match.

So she bought me another from west elm. Neither have a silicone seal & my cookies are very stale. So we don’t use it at all.

It was his favorite gift (okay tied with the kindle). About once a month he spends his own money and gets a pack of cookies to put in it, and insists on helping bake cookies to be able to store some in there as well. Super cute.

Not such a bad problem really ;)

It has never occured to me to have one in my own house, but now I think my mother and mother in law should get on it for the grandkids.

I did recently buy a breadbox, which feels both practical and old fashioned, and now my girls love to make their own toast.

I have three little kids now and also have a cookie jar. I don’t bake as often as she did, but I do try to fill it up about twice a month. Cookies stay fresh in there for about 3 or 4 days. I guess it could theoretically be longer, but they are always gone by then, so I don’t know!

In our house we do Cookie Fridays, and my husband usually has eaten them all by Monday!

Cookies forever!

It took a long time for me to realize that cookie jars were supposed to contain cookies. I eventually started using the cookie jar to hide my own stash of treats from our pantry so my siblings wouldn’t have eaten all of them without me.

Makes me want to storm out of my office and shout: “I’m done for the day*! I’m leaving to find the perfect cookie jar available in my town (more nostalgia since I’m turning a blind eye to the Internet) and bake cookies all day long. In fact, even into the night.”

You’ve inspired me; thanks for a wonderful post. And before I begin my quest, do tell: do you keep separate cookie jars for the gooey cookies versus the crispy, snap-like cookies?

*It’s 10:14am now; our offices officially open at 9am; I usually work 11 hrs days so I’m really throwing off the shackels.
