Bob’s Red Mill
This week we’ve teamed up with Bob’s Red Mill to show off some of our favorite cookie recipes. The base to every good recipe are quality ingredients. This is something I had to learn the hard way. Your hard work in the kitchen just isn’t as good when you skip on the ingredients. I have been so impressed with Bob’s Red Mill. My cookies turned out so darn good!
Give The Gift of Homemade
There is something really special about giving a gift from your kitchen. It took time, thought, and love. We hope that this week you are inspired to give a baked good to a neighbor, a friend, or someone who needs a smile. Serving with food is something that is near and dear to my heart. You just can’t replace that feeling of comfort you get from a homemade item with something you bought at the store.
Package Them In A Cellophane Bag
My first packaging idea is simple and one I have done over and over again. Stack your cookies high and place them in a cellophane bag. Tie the bag with some festive ribbon or bakers twine and add an ornament or tag. I love to use this packaging for my beacon hill cookies, or oatmeal raisin cookies.
Package Them In A Pringles Can
I actually stole this idea from my grandma. She would keep her empty and clean Pringles cans all year long. Around the holidays she would fill them with cookies or a pumpkin roll. She would cover the cans with wrapping paper, but I chose a pretty piece of scrapbook paper and a little baker’s twine. This is the perfect packaging for ginger snaps!
Package Them In A Mason Jar
Mason jars are a classic look and very inexpensive. They are perfect for smaller cookies like white chocolate raspberry cookies. You can really dress them up by adding a little lace or twine. Try tying on a jingle ball or a sprig of holiday greenery. You can purchase mason jars at most grocery stores, big box stores, and craft stores.
