What would the Holidays be with out the cookie? This mouthful of joy is said to have been coveted for thousands of years. Egyptians enjoyed them at rituals. Neolithic farmers are believed to have subsited off a crude form baked on hot rocks. In some cultures it was considered a slight and bad omen if you left your hosts home without trying their petite confections. Dutch settler's brought their Koeptje (small cakes) to the new world. The Koeptje became the cookie and holiday gift giving has never looked back.

Locally we have some amazing bakeries, like Gus and Pauls and La Fiorentina, where you can buy trays full of exquisite edibles. If you have the time and energy to make your own below we have a sensational selection of creative cookies to make. Should you try the later route we also have some great ideas for packaging your homemade gifts. Sometyhing as simple as a brown lunch style bage can be made glamorous with a terrific tag.
