Running out of gift ideas, time, or money? Bake-A-Gift instead!

 We are right in the middle of gift-giving season, and the stress of the holidays may be starting to wear you down.  Baking gifts is a great way to get back in the holiday spirit and cross a few people off of your “still need to buy for” list at the same time!  There are so many options for Bake-A-Gift, and you can add your own creativity in the packaging, decorating, and presentation of your homemade treats!

Some of the best gifts to give are homemade, and everyone loves a reason to indulge!  You don’t have to limit yourself to cookies; jarred brownie, hot chocolate, or party mix are also nice gifts to give.  You can also bake fruitcakes, cheesecakes, or create a mixture of your favorite desserts!

  1. This looks like a great recipe – easy, quick & makes a good number. I will put this one on my list.

  2. This is what my mother in law use to make. These are sooo good BUT our Price Chopper on O’Neil Hwy Dunmore had samples of their no bake cookies with sw condensed milk and nuts . IT was better > Please publish that recipe .

    Hi Folks,
    I spent some wonderful moments shopping on Eastern Ave. and the other store near Oneida Middle School, Schenectady,NY, in 2004-2005.
    While doing my MAT at the Grad. College of Union University, I enjoyed the walk from Park Place to the stores….and back!!!!! Great prices, friendly and efficient employees all helped to make life away from my country, Barbados, less stressful.
    Thank you for helping me to cope financially in my search to purchase fresh, healthy and affordable food items. At least four barrels of non-perishable foods were sent back to my family in Barbados. With your affordable prices, I could comfortably do so.
    Thank you, again,
    George Francis,
