This year, gift your friends with an early taste of this magical time of the year: a homemade take on Thin Mints.

Homemade Seasoned Salt or Italian Herb Salt--so easy! I made these for neighbors, friends & co-workers for Christmas & tied a fat sparkly ribbon around the jars with a tag that said "Season's Greetings!" ;o)
