Cookies ready to sample...
Here's a way to wrap the cookies to go--Get red paper plates and white paper plates. Cut the white plate to a slightly smaller size with pinking shears. Layer the white plate on top of the red plate and wrap with clear cello, a red gingham ribbon and label...voila...holiday cookies to go!
You may also use a trusty take-out box, decorated with a gingerbread ornament and red gingham ribbon.
Be sure to include all the recipe cards with your packages...
The peppermint punch is my "signature beverage" served for this luncheon. It's a delicious drink and very festive for a holiday event!
*Recipe for Peppermint Punch
1 quart egg nog
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 1-liter bottle club soda, chilled
1/2 gallon peppermint ice cream, softened
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Blend the egg nog, whipping cream, club soda, and nutmeg. Add the peppermint ice cream and stir. Garnish with crushed peppermints and serve immediately. (You can use vanilla ice cream and mix it with crushed peppermints instead of peppermint ice cream). Yum, yum!
