Gifts of Food

I really enjoy giving gifts I have personally made and that includes gifts of food. I've collected a few bloggers' favorite recipes to share with you. Which recipe is one you want to try for yourself or to give as a gift?
And a little secret...this year I made chocolate chip cookie pies for TEN teachers at school. (Specials, classroom, and assistants.) By using slightly smaller pie tins, I was able to make 3 pies from one double pie crust recipe and two fillings. It was still a lot of work, but there are ways to make it happen!

Please feel free to share and pin these gifts of food. However, when using Pinterest, please pin images from the original post or use the group image at the top of this post.
