How to Save on Holiday Gifts
I have a cookie baking party around the first of December, invite a couple friends and have them bring a couple premade cookie dough recipes and cookie sheets. We drink wine and bake all day! When we are finished, we split the cookies up and have five to seven different kinds. They go straight to the freezer in ziplock bags. When needed, I take the cookies out of the freezer, let them defrost, put them on holiday plates I buy at the 99-cent store and give a plate of cookies as a gift.
