always a hit!  instead of giving plates of homemade cookies or cookie mixes in a jar.... i love making and giving these homemade cookie rolls. this year, for friends and family, i whipped up homemade gingerbread cookie dough, wrapped and rolled them in wax paper, then foil... and then covered a section of the cookie dough with a fun-designed wrapping paper!  i chose fushia and orange.. non-traditional christmas colors... so that, my recipents use them in january... the colors will perk them up!  i'll attach a note with baking directions and a note, to stick the roll in the freezer and not use until 2011!
smile, wink, nod!
