Starbucks Cookie Holder - Project & Tutorial

Hello & thanks for stopping by!! Before I begin with my tutorial, I would just like to tell you that Starbucks is making it easy for you to donate to Haiti Earthquake Relief effort. Walk into any Starbucks stores across the U.S. and Canada, No purchase is necessary, and 100% of the donations will go to the Red Cross. You can even donate with your loaded Starbucks Card. The Starbucks Foundation will join your support by donating one million dollars (U.S.) to the American Red Cross in support of this effort.

Now grab your coffee, tea, hot chocolate and let's get started...

I am making my project for my dad, he is having surgery today on his left hand. A few months ago he had surgery on his right hand for carpal tunnel and now he is getting his left hand done. So to cheer him up, I made him a fun treat! While I was at Starbucks the other day, I noticed some parfaits filled in the SB cups and thought of this fun idea. So before I left, I asked for some cups and filled them up with homemade cookies. Attached to the project, I added a Starbucks gift card.

Cookie recipe/Toll House Cookie recipe:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups of Nestle Toll House - Semi Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
Here are the instructions for my Starbucks Cookie Holder:

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, if you make one of these, be sure to link it here so I can check it out! Have a wonderful weekend, see you tomorrow with my OCC sample!

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine.
