.:Last Minute Neighbor Gift:.

Has Christmas snuck up on you like it has me? That late Thanksgiving really threw me off this year!

If you’re still looking for some quick and easy gifts to give to neighbors and friends, I’ve got just the thing for you! This last minute Cookie Neighbor Gift is super simple to put together, and everyone loves cookies, right?

Last Minute Neighbor Gift at www.SumosSweetStuff.com - Make bakery style cookies, put individual cookies into CD sleeves, package & deliver! #gifts #Christmas

You can use whatever recipe you like; I used this recipe from All Recipes for bakery style chocolate chip cookies.

My tip for using this recipe is to make up the dough exactly as the recipe says, and then let the dough cool in the fridge for at least an hour. I actually let it cool over night. When you go to make your cookies, make the balls of dough just under 1/4 cup. They will bake up nice and big, perfect for slipping into CD sleeves.

I found the craft CD sleeves at Wal-Mart – perfect for dressing up with twine, ribbon, or whatever else you like!

Come on. Who wouldn’t like to get a stack of cookies to pass out to their family? I know my girls would love having their own individual cookie in a CD sleeve.

And really, this would make a great gift for any time of year!

Happy baking!
