Do you like to bake cookies but can’t find a unique or cute way to send them?  Here’s one idea.  Why don’t you try cookie gift baskets?  It’s very easy to do.  Plus, you get to express yourself too.  Do you want to try it?

 

You can also order a gift baskets like this one which would be perfect for someone who loves coffee and cookies.

The truth is there is no exact or one way to present your cookie gift basket.  In fact, the possibilities for your basket are endless.  If ever you run out of quirky concept or plan, the styles below can help you:

 

1. A traditional gift basket is common.  It is easy and fun to make too.  Plus, you can purchase decorative baskets from any craft store near you.  Lay a piece of fabric at the base of your basket.  Next, place your cookies inside plastic bags.  Tie the bags with colorful ribbons.  Place the plastic bags in the basket.  That’s it.

 

2. You can entertain or amuse your friends with your cookie basket.  You might want to use tin cans or toy drums for friends who are musically-inclined.  If you want, you can wrap the cookies with a music sheet.

 

3. If you are into combining colors, you might want to try layering your basket wrapper.  Cut out designs or forms on the outer layer after you have wrapped the basket with your base layer.  For example, use a black paper as your base layer.  Then on another orange paper, cut out Halloween icons such as pumpkins, witches, etc.  Wrap the orange paper around the black paper to see the effect.  Cool, huh?

 

4. You don’t need to use a basket all the time.  You can use other ideas such as toys wagons, wheelbarrows or baby bath tub if the occasion needs it.  For baby shower gift, you can fill a baby tub with rubber duckie cookies.  For a beach themed party, you can go for pails with cookies inside.  These are cute ideas and you can invent as many “basket” ideas as you want.

 

5. If you are going for a simple presentation, you can just wrap your basket with clear cellophane.  This way, your assortment of cookies can still be seen.  Tie the cellophane with cute and colorful ribbons to create a contrast.  Better yet, turn fabrics into ribbons.  This idea allows you to incorporate fun patterns to your gift basket.

 

6. For intermediate bakers, you can create cookies shaped like flowers.  Put craft sticks into your dough before you bake them to add “stems” to your cookie flowers.  As soon as your cookies are cool enough, frost them to add colors to your flowers.  Prepare your cookie basket by placing a florist’s foam.  Carefully stick and arrange the cookies to make them look like a bouquet.  Cover the revealed foam to make the presentation more believable.

There is a mistaken belief that certified kosher food is food that has been blessed by a rabbi. In actuality kosher means that the food and all included ingredients conform to the body of law that deals with the processing and preparation of food that can be eaten by Jewish people. A rabbi does not bless the food though they often oversee the food production to ensure it falls within the category of kosher.

 

Just because a product is certified Kosher doesn't mean that it has been blessed by a Rabbi.

Just because a product is certified Kosher doesn't mean that it has been blessed by a rabbi.

 

The types of food

 

 

There are types of food that are strictly forbidden for consumption. It is important to know what these foods are as even minimal contact with the forbidden foods or their by-products during processing and preparation will result in allowable food becoming ineligible to be certified kosher.

 

Land animals can only be eaten if they chew their cud and have hoofs that are split in two. Allowable animals include cows and deer while pigs and rabbits are some animals not allowed as they do not meet both criteria.

 

Sea animals can only be eaten if they have fins and scales. This eliminates foods such as crab, shrimp and other shellfish.

Milk, eggs and other by-products of the restricted animals are included on the forbidden foods list.
The slaughter
Meat can only be certified kosher if Jewish law is adhered to during slaughter. The animals must be killed quickly and in the most humane way possible, most often with a quick stoke across the throat. Natural causes, or killing by another animal cannot be the cause of death. The animal must also have been healthy prior to slaughter.
Processing and preparation

 

In addition to being humane, a slash across the throat helps drain the blood in the quickest and most complete way. Meat from land animals must be devoid of all blood to be certified kosher. Any blood that remains in the meat after slaughter is removed through broiling, salting or soaking.
These meat products cannot come into contact with foods that are forbidden or with fish or dairy products even if they are kosher as well. This is in accordance with the prohibition of pairing meat with dairy or meat with fish and also extends to the utensils and food preparation surfaces used.

 

What does it mean to be certified kosher? It means that food served at a Jewish table follows all the important dietary laws in the religion.
