So I have a question for any of you who bake cookies for X-mas either as gifts or for yourselves. When do you start baking and how many do you make? I am wanting to give out a small bag of cookies to my family on Christmas Eve and then have enough for me. So it would be like 9 bags I guess, maybe a few more. I was thinking of checking if the dollar store sold x-mas bags that I could put them in with ribbon. I have four different cookie recipes I was going to try and figured I'd make like 3 dozen or so of each recipe. That would be like 130 cookies roughly. Is that too much, not enough??? And figured I'd hand the cookies out on x-mas eve so I'd start baking on like the MOnday before. Is that too soon? I've never really baked to give away before so I'm thinking all this through as I type. TIA for any and all help.
