After my mom and I (or my mom, sister and I) make cookies we divide them up, then I take mine and put them into little cellophane bags with ribbon and do a cookie drop.
The idea is that I drop homemade cookies at friends’ doors with a text message after I drive away to check the door. Weather doesn’t always cooperate, like this year it started snowing and I got stuck driving up a hill to friends’ house. In any case, I like to share homemade cookies in this way.
I picked up the tin back in the fall from the Target dollar spot. I have smaller bags that I used to make secret santa treat bags for my coworkers.
