Hard to believe, but it's already holiday gift-making time at our house. I usually make one or two edible treats like candy or jam or cookies to give to family and friends, but this year we're going a more savory route: mustard. Recipe to come later, but for now, more gift inspiration from around the web:
Homemade candy (candy cane marshmallows, turtle thumbprints, sugared cranberries) from Saveur [via Saveur]
A round-up of cookie recipes (biscotti, homemade Oreos, Russian tea cakes) from Smitten Kitchen [via SK]
Bittersweet chocolate truffles rolled in spices [via Food & Wine]
Cheese straws and "12 Days of Cookies" over at Lottie + Doof [via L+D]
Bourbon balls and chocolate-pistachio toffee [via Dinner Party Recipes]
Vanilla syrup (ooh!) [via Food in Jars]
Feel free to share more ideas in the comments!
