Every Christmas I get so inspired to bake holiday cookies. Last year, I broke my own record in cookie baking – I baked close to 500 cookies! Granted they were tiny one inch cookies but it was actually quite a challenging task. I knew I wanted to package them as individual bags so I started looking around for inspiration. I saw people doing all kind of cool stuff with their packaging. Then I came across an image of cookies being wrapped in clear plastic so my light bulb went on.
I found some clear plastic sleeve on the web and ordered a bunch of them. They were about 2.5 inches wide and both ends were open. I also bought some baker's twine from Paper Treats on Etsy. The package it came in was super adorable!
After getting all the materials. It was time to look for recipes! Here are the 5 that I decided and adopted from – Lemon Shortbread, Old-Fashioned Gingerbread, Chocolate Almond Cranberry, Chocolate Espresso, and Earl Grey Tea. I did a small test using the 1 inch cookie cutter and those cookies came out just the right size to fit into the 2.5 inch sleeve. Then I was golden and started baking away!
