Minty Christmas Tree Cutout Cookies

A sugar cookie is in almost everyone’s baking arsenal and it’s hard to venture away from a go-to recipe. This recipe, however, features a new twist on the classic sugar cookie. Try out this recipe and you might find your new favorite!

Eggnog Frosted Chai Snickerdoodle Snowmen

It is winter, after all, and it’s great to incorporate the spices of the season into something you bake. This spicy snowman is something for everyone to enjoy. Start baking this sweet seasonal treat!

Pretzel Linzers With Salted Caramel

An elegant yet simple treat that doubles as a snack and a dessert. This is the perfect combination of sweet and salty to satisfy everyone’s cravings. Be sure to make extras of these as they’ll disappear fast!

What’s more important than the recipe itself is the chance to market yourself. If there’s an opportunity for branding, be sure to take advantage of it. Create custom napkins with your contact information on them, print out the recipes and attach your name to them, or add small gift tags to any packaged cookies with a “from” listed. Make sure that your hard work doesn’t go to waste when they’ve taken your treat but forgotten your name. Adding your contact information somewhere is a sure way to expand your reach when those attendees might share this new delicious recipe with others.
