Baking for the Holidays
Over at Life as Mom today they're talking about foods that make great gifts. Usually there's so much food around the holidays that I don't often gift food, but here are a few recipes that gift very well:
:: Easy Sugar Cookies are usually a quick go-to for parties or hostess gifts. The are pretty and present well on a holiday plate (usually from dollar store), holiday plastic wrap and a bow.
:: Reduced Sugar Fruit Spreads that I made this summer will be great for gifting this holiday season. Add a ribbon to the jar and they're ready to go. Or pair it with a Biscuit Mix in a breakfast basket. The recipe works beautifully with frozen fruit too!
:: Quick Breads [HV Blueberry Bread, HV Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Cranberry Orange Bread] also gift very well and there are often holiday tins that you can bake them in to make them a bit more festive. Or wrap them in a holiday plastic wrap and you're good to go!
