Nearly every year I make cookies and give them out as gifts. I buy the pretty Christmas themed cookie tins at the dollar stores and I make cookies. I try to stick to simple and easy recipes, such as sugar cookies, no bake cookies and a few other ones. I find that several people are very appreciative of these gifts. \n\nI started doing this a few years ago because I could not afford gifts and it has worked like a charm ever since. Now with the cake mixes being "cookie friendly" and so many different recipes on the boxes I can also save some more time and money and bake cookies this way as well. \n\nWill you be giving cookies as gifts this holiday season?
