DIY 09: Chocolate Chip CookiesDecember 24th, 2012 | Posted by in 12 DIY's Of Christmas | DIY | Holidays/Seasons
This year I’ll be baking for most of the people on my list. It’s hard to really know what to get for aunts and uncles, friends of the family or even cousins. Baking is awesome because most people are entertaining for the holidays so your treats will probably get put to good use.
I have been on the hunt for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I have yet to find it. This recipe is pretty close though; the cookies are chewy, buttery and not too thick!
Bake the cookies according to this recipe
Once finished, allow your cookies to cool completely before packaging. I bake mine in bulk about a week or two before Christmas and stick them in the freezer to keep. I’ll take them out the day before I give them away.
Package your cookies up in decorative tins or boxes. I found my tins at Dominion. Be sure to wrap the cookies in parchment paper before putting them in the tin or box. Sometimes I add a colourful napkin to the bottom. Michael’s carries boxes and bags that are made for food packaging.
Feel free to wrap a bow around the tin and add a little ornament (you might have some left over). Mine were on sale for 50% off and match my cans. Add a card and you have a sweet, consumable gift!
