My Mom and I will be beginner-level-baking (lol no really) as a fun activity to do together this holiday for gift giving. We will pick a few different kinds of cookies and dessert treats to divide and pack up for office with multiple head counts and a few neighbors and friend's households as well. It would be nice to have a nice mixed plate/variety to share with each drop off location. I'd just like to gather some ideas for some easy/simple sweets to make that can be shared with multiple people per drop off. What might you make for a Christmas mixed sweet treats platter? or recommend a beginner make? or want to see on a platter???
One last thing, I can't break the bank here so no fancy expensive stuff and we plan to home scratch what we make... I don't know, I was thinking maybe a few kinds of cookies... a bar type treat and maybe some muffins as I don't want to deal with slicing loaves...I am also catering to different diets so I'd like a nice mix of a healthier choice, a middle grounds "okay, it's the holidays, one or two won't hurt" choice and a sinful "Santa, I've been real bad" choice LOL So mild to wild, you get the point. Variety! Oh and if this helps we would need about 3 dozen treats a platter for about 4+ offices and about 1-2 dozen treats a platter for 4+ households... I need to finish the list but we need a lot so I'm not sure of costs.
Ps. I want to get a cookie press. Are they as neat as they look?
