It is not only relatively inexpensive, but it's also a huge hit with everyone we give it to. Just keep in mind that baking from scratch sends a greater message of putting time and effort into the gift rather than using a mix or pre-made dough. Another bonus is that my mom and I have a great time baking together, and it's a fun way to make every dessert we could possibly want and not have to eat them all ourselves.

We usually make amazing short bread cookies that can be customized in countless ways - my favorite is with jam. We also make at least 2 other kinds of cookies, sometimes cream puffs, and biscotti, but really anything can be made. Just keep in mind how far something might have to travel to get to the recipient and choose accordingly. Happy baking.
