Father's Day Cookie Tins

Monday, June 22, 2009

I hope everyone enjoyed Father's Day. I have a tradition of making date pinwheels for my dad. This year I altered the recipe to make them more healthy by using sucanat and whole wheat. Sucanat is evaporated can juice and a more natural, healthy form of sugar. My kids scarfed the extras down quickly so I guess they were just as good with my healthy alterations.
I didn't have anything to put the cookies in so I found these formula cans and made labels for them. I even put the ingredients on the side and some Father's Day quotes.

  5. What a great idea for cookie packaging! Where do you buy the Sucranat? Do you substitute it 1 for 1 for sugar? Thanks for linking up!

  6. Sounds yummy, would you post the cookie recipe too? Maybe by next Father's Day I'll have my life in better order and I could make these and get them in the mail for my Dad.

  9. I'd love the recipe, too. I use Sucanat and other sweeteners like it for just about all of my baking, substituting it for "regular" sugar. LOVE your blog, by the way!
