I'm going to be doing some baked goods baskets to grandparents and DBF's parents,etc so I'm trying to come up with some stuff.

I was thinking general treats like fudge, cookies, brownies, etc.
And then maybe some "recipes in a jar" and doing cookies/cake in that for some people.
Or like drink mixes. I have this mochaccino drink recipe that I think I might do again and I was thinking some others as well.

What are your favourite recipes (cookies, brownies, etc)?
And any good "recipes in a jar" ideas/recipes?

This my favorite "go to" quick gift...chai tea mix!


Have you ever done in canning? Apple butter can be made in the crock pot and is super easy to can. Smiley

Something pretty simple is making marshmallows, and you can dip them in chocolate, coconut, caramel/nuts, etc.

I am giving out cookies this Christmas.  My problem is the packaging.  I want it to be nice but low budget at the same time.  Still thinking of low cost ways for the packaging.  Any ideas?

When I'm not making crafts, I'm dreaming them up!

CraftyLittleLady, I haven't thought too much about how to package them yet, but a simple idea is cellophane bag with a ribbon? I'm probably going to do something simple like that since they're going to be put into a basket as well.

Google it and there might be some other ideas. I just googled it and there were a couple things, but I didn't look too much.

Let me know if you do find something really cute and low budget. Smiley

Cardboard boxes?  You could probably upcycle some packaging, and if you're worried about food sticking to the box, you could just mod podge down a layer of cling wrap or something?

I live in Germany, and one thing that we always have for Christmas is Stollen. Usually I don't like it, but last year I found a recipe with curd cheese and marzipan. I also added a lot of mead, and it was awesome.
And we have Spritzgebck.
And last year someone sent me meringue cookies with almonds and cinnamon, yummy. That's the taste I associate with Christmas.


I'm interested in personal swaps.
For a project I'm in need of Christmas countdown inchies! If you're interested and/or want more information feel free to pm me.
