She says there are a lot of fun and creative ways to gift cookies.

“You could, for example, make a gingerbread house with a removable roof and fill it with cookies.  Cookies on lolipop sticks are often fun. You could nestle them into a holiday arrangement with styrafoam — they’ll fit right in there. You could put them in a jar or a vase even tied with festive holiday ribbon, accompany them with old-fashioned milk bottles so you have your automatic cookies and milk ready to go!”

And she says when you make them at home, you’re often left with some lasting holiday memories.
