‘Tis the season for giving! And what better way to spread the holiday cheer than by making a batch of your favorite cookies for a neighbor or friend. I often purchase a festive dinner plate or tin from a favorite local store and wrap the cookies up with a colorful bow. Always be sure to include the recipe on a card, just in case they want to pass on the tradition and bake this scrumptious treat for a friend or loved one. Our favorite recipe is easy-to-make Iced Holiday Sugar Cookies (don’t worry, the vegetables are hiding in the cookies!) from Allens. Oops, maybe it’s not so secret anymore!
