One of my favorite gifts to give and of course to receive is food. For the holidays I give out hundreds of cookies. This year DR gave me a very elegant box with four kinds of biscotti; lemon pistachio, chocolate chocolate chip, almond coffee, and my favorite, cinnamon pecan. I would like to say that I savored them slowly but…I gobbled the first four upon receipt and ate the other four soon thereafter. Yummmy!
When I give out cookies, I try to use containers that I have recycled. I wrap coffee and oatmeal containers in wrapping paper. I have affixed old cutout Christmas cards onto takeout containers. I also buy some holiday bags and put a small assortment of cookies in them. I’m never sure if they’re food safe or not so I usually put them in a ziplock first. It also helps to keep them fresh.
