Each year we bake up a number of Christmas cookies to give to family, friends, service professionals we are grateful for, etc. Each year the list expands. This year we have vowed to get organized, make dough in advance, improve our packaging and presentation so that recipients don't get a box of crumbs, etc. What are your best practices? [more inside]

Here in Seattle, when you want to buy a single gingerbread person (or tree or sheep, or whatever,) you are basically OUT OF LUCK in 2009. No, I do NOT want to buy a whole package of them, or bake a batch. I just want to saunter into a bakery or coffeeshop and buy ONE cookie. No, not the huge, soft, ginger cookies which are admittedly delicious, but are no substitute as far as the texture of a good gingebread "person" is concerned. I'd bake some, but let's face it, who can eat just one? And I'd like to minimize the holiday weight-gain carnage this year. So far, I've searched three different Seattle neighborhoods: downtown, Ballard, and Greenwood. Zip.
