Who needs a map for their Christmas Boxes.... I do


So as you can see I have a map on the inside of my Christmas boxes. Why you may ask. Do you ever have those people who you give baked goods too that you have worked long and hard on, and present them with this wonderful box only to have them say what is this and what is that. And the answer you want to give after the 3rd question is just eat the Damn cookie. This is to alleviate that issue and then you can just drop off your boxes and everyone knows what they got and what they want to eat and not eat. But I was successful and made everything I set out to make but not the extra things but I think I did a pretty bang up job and that my Christmas box recipients are pretty lucky. So I will post the list again and a link to most of the recipes, click on the name.

Pina Colada - White Chocolate with coconut, chopped dried pineapple and chopped macadamia nuts mixed in.
