As the festive season draws near, we’re starting to think about gifting. While there are literally thousands of options in the shops to choose from, nothing beats the unique one-of-a-kind foodie gift that’s handmade by you for a loved one. As the end of year madness speeds up, we invite you to slow down and spend time in your kitchen rather than at the mall. Instead of rushing around, make a leisurely batch of these festive stained-glass cookies – the recipe was created by Tahila Pillay, a student at Jackie Cameron’s School of Food & Wine.
They’re gorgeous as decorative hanging gifts for the tree or a simple gift for friends and family. Package them in pretty recycled glass jars or tins instead of plastic and wrapping paper – you’ll be surprised how much more people appreciate a thoughtful hand crafted gift over anything bought in a store. It’s a time for giving. Let’s not take anything more from an already over-plundered earth.
These cute cookies are easy and quick to make, but will make a long-lasting impression!
