Sugar, spice and everything nice. That’s what little girls are made of, according to the old nursery rhyme. Eventually, those sweet little girls bloom into wonderful women, some of whom go on to become mothers. Just because she’s no longer a little girl does not mean mom isn’t still full of the same ingredients. Gift baskets are a great way to give back to the sweet, lively and kind mothers in your lives. Here are some of our favorite arrangements to cover each facet of a mother’s personality.http://www.bisketbaskets.com/mothersday.html#sortTop

  • Spice: Wine and Cheese Gift Basket – This lush basket will bring spice into your mother’s life with ease. Wine and cheese are just the tip of the iceberg in this basket, which also includes premium coffee, nuts, cookies and crackers.

Admit it: Cookies are your guilty pleasure. Sweet, delicious, even decadent — who can resist the delectable enticement of cookies? Regardless of which cookies are anyone’s personal favorites, the very thought of them is often enough to elicit a smile from even the most curmudgeonly person. It’s the reason we created cookie gift baskets. Filled with cookies, more cookies and only cookies, they are the ideal gift for every occasion and even for those “just because” times when there is no special occasion. The gift that always fits; it’s also the one that no one returns! Perhaps that’s because it’s the gift that everyone loves.

Family

Whether you’re looking for a sweet hostess gift to offer your mother-in-law, a cheery get-well item to brighten your grandmother’s day or a fun way to let your mom know that you’re thinking of her, a basket filled with flower-shaped cookies, for instance, is sure to do it.

Friends

Thank your wonderful neighbor who willingly picked your kids up when you were sick. Congratulate your best friend on her promotion, and encourage your friend who broke his leg. A gift box or basket of white chocolate macadamia or oatmeal pecan cookies has a charming way of conveying precisely what you mean.

Co-workers

If you want to see joy, give a cookie gift basket to that helpful co-worker or to the one celebrating a milestone birthday. Cookies have that kind of power!

For every occasion and every person, cookie gift baskets are the joy-filled, smile-producing gift.

Looking for a deliciously simple treat to serve this holiday season? Check out this recipe for Cranberry-Orange Pinwheel Cookies, as adapted by BakedByRachel.com.

Cranberry-Orange Pinwheel Cookies (adapted from BakedByRachel.com)

Image source - BakedByRachel.com

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of chopped cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh orange zest
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup of softened butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ of a cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 3 cups of baking flour

Directions:

  • First, add your cranberries, half of your orange zest, and walnut to a food processor. Mix these ingredients until they are well-blended, or small pieces of the ingredients are left. Chill in the refrigerator until needed.
  • In your mixer, cream your butter, brown and white sugar, and vanilla together. Once they are blended, add your baking powder, the other half of your orange zest, salt, and eggs.
    Once your mixture is fully combined, start adding in the flour. Only add the flour in a little at a time at a medium speed. Once the dry and wet ingredients are combined, chill the dough mixture for an hour.
  • When the dough is chilled for an hour, separate the dough into two sections. Roll out each half of the dough on wax paper, until each section is about ¼ inch thick. Spread half of the cranberry mixture on each section of the dough.
  • Once the filling is spread across the dough sections, start rolling the dough from the short ends of the rectangle. Guide the roll with the wax paper, and once complete, seal the ends with tape and place the log in the refrigerator to sit overnight.
  • When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Start by cutting each log into ¼ inch slices. Place on a baking sheet covered in wax or parchment paper, and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly gold.
