Christmas Gifts (part one)

What items do you have on your gift list for this year?

Some of my gifts include store bought stuff while others will be homemade. The homemade stuff is going to be cookies. Some recipes will be the ones that I have already tried, that were delicious and not to mention how easy they were to make. I plan on making gift baskets with these goodies.

These delicious looking and healthy Walnut Oat Wafers made by Deeba from Passionate About Baking are going to be a hit (Picture from Deeba's blog). Check out the recipe here

The Melting Moments from JoyofBaking

Ina Garten's Shortbread cookies from Food Network

I won't be using any cookie cutters instead I will shape the dough into a pie and cut them into wedges.

Store bought gifts I have on my list are my favorites from
The Holiday Petits Fours

The Original Peppermint Bark

Ikea carries some beautifully packaged chocolates that I might pick up to include in my gift baskets. My next post will include more store bought gifts and the post after that will include ideas on how to put these gifts together.
