Some of my favorite holiday memories are baking in the kitchen with my Mom. Now that my girls are older, they love to join in on the Christmas baking too! While we make plenty of sweets for ourselves, I also love to gift these festive baked cookies and treats during the Holidays. They make perfect gifts for teachers, mail carriers, and other service men and women.
