It is that time again Christmas present season. It is always hard trying to figure out what to make or get for your co-workers to say hey I like working with you but not breaking the bank. This year I made two different things for co-workers.
The quick and easy gift was cute little pumpkin bread!
I found these neat single use baking pans with a lid! They were at my local Target for about $4. (I am not affiliated with or being paid/given anything by the companies listed in this post. I just am trying to make it easier for you to find the products I am talking about. I like the items in this post and am passing it along to you. All opinions in this article are my own.) I just used one Pillsbury Pumpkin Quick Bread mix and it filled up all the pans.
It was super quick and easy. All I had to do was reduce the cooking time by a few minutes and Bam Christmas presents!
The next gift was a bit more involved still cheap because I had all the ingredients. However it was more time consuming as I made the cookies from scratch.
I made these little boxes of cookies but this year I only iced the top ones and then added icing dipping cups! This is the best idea I have had in awhile. It cut down on the icing or decorating time and I could add more than one layer of cookies without them sticking together.
One little thing I did was use my Mug Cookie Cutter from World Market. Because I chilled the dough overnight they really seemed hold their shape while baking. Definitely a cookie cutter to use again.
