Baking Holiday Treats


Baking and decorating holiday treats are among the best—and most delicious—ways to spend time with family and friends. The beautiful and tasty results also make thoughtful gifts.

Give cookies in a decorative tin that the recipient can use time and time again. You might also present bread wrapped in a colorful kitchen towel secured with a hemp or raffia bow. Don’t forget a note that includes your recipe—unless, of course, it’s a secret!
