Cookie trays are a fabulous gift idea for friends, family or neighbors. My mom and I prepare these every year, and all of our neighbors rave about them. After preparing several different types of cookies over the past few weeks, I am always left with hundreds of cookies.

Find a platter, it can either be plain or Christmas themed and decoratively arrange your cookies. Wrap in cellophane, and tie a ribbon! If you’re feeling extra festive, attach an ornament to the bow. Your friends/family/neighbors will all love receiving these delicious treats but be careful… they’ll be looking for it year after year!

Below are photos of the different types of cookies I made this year. Sugar, Molasses, Red Velvet Crinkle, Cranberry White Chocolate, French, and Coconut Almond Joy are just a few of the cookies on the platter. Some of the recipes I posted on the blog below, but If you’re looking for the recipes for any of the others, send me an email at thepreppyhostess@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to send you the recipes.
