One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to bake cookies! I love baking with my friends, my kids and alone. A girl needs some "me time" every now and then! I turn the radio up, mix up a mug of hot chocolate and bake.
Tastefully Simple offers so many simple, delicious and fun cookie recipes. More than anyone could imagine! What could be even more fun than baking (and sampling) of the cookies? Packing them up into cute little packages and giving them away to family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, teachers and everyone else you know! Spread the joy this season and check out the great packaging ideas below. These ideas are also found in our Christmas Cookie Menu that comes with the Christmas Cookie Collection, plus we've made the super cute tags easy for you to do at home! Download the printable PDF and you can use these when packaging up your cookies this year. Enjoy!
