Christmas Cookie Recipes

Food Gift:  Plates of Christmas Cookies
I arrange the sweets on a festive disposable plate and then
sprinkle it with holiday candies before covering.

Last year I shared about the tradition my family has of baking many different types of cookies and giving plates of  them as gifts to friends and neighbors.  This year is no different and today I completed the baking of seven different types of sweets.  Currently they are all tucked safely in their air tight containers.  Tomorrow I will plate them, cover them with festive cling wrap, and then my children and I will deliver them to our neighbors.  Of course, we sampled a few broken cookies and we will keep a sampler of these holiday  cookies to enjoy for dessert on Christmas Eve, but the main purpose of these treats is to spread home baked Christmas cheer to families that we appreciate.

May you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday! 
Merry Christmas from Heidi's Recipes!

Christmas Cookies 2011

Minty Brownie Bites

I spread the cookies out on our kitchen island and then fill the plates.
I use holiday Press 'n Seal to cover the plates.

It sure is a good feeling when all the baked goods are tucked safely in their
containers and the kitchen is clean.
