Christmas Recipes and Neighbor Gifts

I’m starting to get knocks at my door with friends delivering gifts. This year we are giving homemade vanilla in cute little jars. Here is a collection of easy christmas recipes you can make and package up as wonderful neighbor/friend/family gifts.

Christmas Recipes and Christmas Neighbor Gift Ideas

Candied Pecans – These are always a favorite because they can be eaten alone or are even better on salads or pecan pie.

Candied Pecans is an easy recipe with brown sugar and cinnamon. Tastes great on salads or on sweet potatoes.

Eggnog Cookies – These are so moist and packed with flavor. Package them in a cellophane bag or box with parchment paper in between the cookies.

Eggnog cookies is an easy recipe with an eggnog icing. They are soft and almost melt in your mouth. These will get you in the holiday mood.

Ginger Snap Cookies – This is a family favorite for sure. I double the recipe each time I make it. Deliver these and your friends will come asking for the recipe!

White Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies – One of our most requested cookie recipe. Package these with those cute little milk cartons.

Raspberry Sweet Rolls – These homemade rolls are delicious! Either deliver them fully cooked, or deliver them with cooking instructions in a small foil pan from the dollar store. The ones at my store even have a lid! It would make for a fun breakfast treat.

Soft and fluffy Raspberry Sweet Rolls are filled with juicy raspberries and topped with a cream cheese glaze. Bake for special occasions or to impress guests.

 Christmas Snack Mix – Package this snack mix with a note to eat while they are looking at the lights.

This Christmas Snack Mix is so simple. Just open a few packages and mix it all together.

Christmas Bingo – Print this game to include with the Christmas Snack Mix.  This is fun for all ages, including date night.

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!

    The pecans are my favorite, but all of them look scrumptious. Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. Hope to see you back next week.

    What a lovely selection of recipes. I love giving homemade gifts from the kitchen at Christmas. Everything looks delicious – it’s hard to pick a favourite. I do love those Raspberry Sweet Rolls though! Thank you so much for bringing this post to the Hearth and Soul Hop. Stumbled and shared.
