Every single holiday season I would help my mom make cookies to give away as gifts. She would dedicate several days (usually a few weekends before Christmas) to bake, bake and bake some more. I was always Momma's little helper and I feel as though I have an even greater appreciation for edible gifts now that I'm older. My mom would make (and still does!) ten different kinds of cookies — all from scratch, of course. As the years have gone by, she's slowly but surely downsized the operation, but she still does it every year. Because this will be the first year I'll be hosting the family in my home, I was thinking of creating some edible gifts that they can take home with them. A little something to remember me and this holiday season by.
Luckily, I unearthed 10 fantastic edible gifts to share:
• 7 Edible Gifts in a Jar
