For us, the holidays are all about cooking, but what if you can’t actually be with your loved ones this year to cook for them in person? Our solution is edible gifts that can be dropped on friends’ doorsteps or shipped in the mail to family members near and far. And who knows more about making food for loved ones than Ina Garten?
So many of her classic recipes can double as edible gifts. If you’re looking for a homemade candy recipe, she’s got a few options, and when it comes to cookies, cakes, and brownies, no one can beat the Barefoot Contessa.
The key to making food that’s good enough to gift is using the best quality ingredients you can afford, from Ina Garten’s favorite vanilla to her fave fancy French finishing salt. The end result? Edible gifts so good, you might want to end up keeping them for yourself!
