No Comments

Let’s be honest, this season is all about the cookie. Friends host swaps, neighbors exchange sugar-filled tins, kids decorate festive shapes, and families send boxes of love across the miles. If you are baking a batch of sweets for the loved ones in your life this year, I shared my tips and advice (from years of mishaps and victories in gifting and shipping) in three quick posts that I wrote for The Kitchn. You can get a closer look here:
