This morning I assembled cookie tins with an assortment of my homemade treats. Two recipients I will see tonight at our dinner party, so they needed to be done, even though I have a few more recipes to make before Christmas. This should be a good start. We are exchanging early, as both couples will be away during the holidays.
Cut a piece of cardboard, slightly smaller than the lid to keep cookies from getting smashed between layers. Holiday cupcake papers were also helpful to keep smaller cookies in place.
The tins themselves are cute! They have a clear top, so you can see some of the cookies. Add a ribbon if you like, and it's a great gift! The men get the cookies, and the women get a decorated jar of Cranberry-Orange Honey.
