I love making all kinds of cookies to give out as gifts on the holidays. I have my favorites that I make for every holiday season and then some that I try for the first time that year. I make up cookie plates for loved ones, wrap them in plastic, decorate with ribbons and a gift tag and I'm ready to go! It can be a lot of work but it is heartfelt. Everyone knows that they can look forward to fresh baked cookies each holiday from our family too which is a great feeling. It takes time to plan out all of the cookie making. It is a lot of work but being organized will ensure that your cookie baking goes smoothly and you enjoy it at the same time. Follow these steps on how to bake cookies for the holidays and give them as gifts.
