Gifts of Good Taste

I am going to take a break from gardening for a few weeks to play along with Simply Sugar and Gluten Free for her Holiday Food Fest.


Her host Cents to Get Debt Free is featuring Gifts of Good Taste and I thought it would be great to show you how I am packing my cookies for gift giving this holiday season. Here is what they look like:



And here is how you do it:
(These instructions are for 3 inch cookies)

Step 1: Get a piece of cellaphane that is 6 inches squared.



Step 2: Fold both sides 1 inch towards the center:



Step 3: Fold the bottom half way up to the center and secure with tape on both sides:


Step 4: Place the cookie face-down in the little baggie you just made for it:



Step 5: Bring the top flap down and secure it with a pretty sticker of some sort:


Step 6: Flip it over and viola! It is ready for gift giving by itself or put it with others in an attractive basket:

Wow, how lovely! Great job ... who wouldn't love to receive those as a gift? There is something about shiny, crinkly cellophane that gives that special pizazz to goodies!
