Welcome Holiday Guests in Style
Make enough to share
Ahead of the holiday, set aside an evening or weekend for the family cooks (all ages welcome) or a flock of good friends to bake Christmas cookies together. Recognize some of the people who make a difference in your life by giving them a gift from the kitchen, such as these Vanilla Sables. Frozen soups, stews, pasta sauces and one-dish meals also make thoughtful gifts.
At your holiday meal, send guests home with leftovers, maybe in a special container or on a plate that doubles as a gift. Then those who didn't cook don't feel like orphans once they're home.
