We do A LOT of baking at my house in December. Just today we had our cookie-baking marathon for our annual Christmas Cookie gift boxes. A few years ago my husband and I started putting these together for our closest friends and family as a way to share something warm with everyone on a modest budget. The time and love that goes into these boxes far exceeds their cash value! Our three year old loves to cook, and wanted to help as much as possible. He also understands, as every clever little preschooler does, that the longer you hang around the treats the more likely you are to get samples!
