Homemade Sweet Treats, Savory Bites + Spirits

Every year I plan on making some sort of homemade goodies for friends and family who aren’t quite of full-on gift giving caliber, just a little something to say I appreciate you. And every year  December goes by way too quickly and my good intentions are dashed. As of now I still have a few weeks to make it happen this holiday and my fingers are crossed! I’ve narrowed it down to these sweet treats, savory bites, and spirits that can be packaged up all nice like and handed out.

    I’m the same way. I always have big plans and rarely pull the off. I think I just like looking at the recipes.

    Oh man, now I feel epically disorganised. I have not even started shopping yet, let along BAKING GIFTS! I keep eating all the cookies I bake.

    Wow, great list! I don’t think there is even one thing on here that doesn’t sound completely delicious to me. And thank you for sharing my apple cider pretzels :-)
