Make Acorn Bread & Cookies for Your Holiday Gift Baskets

Tired of the usual? Bake acorn bread and cookies and place them in a basket lined with a bright red cloth napkin. Add a few apples, some pears and a handful of unshelled walnuts. Cut a sprig from a cedar or fir branch and prop that in there. Giving your loved ones a gift of health shows you care. The spirit of the forest has always had a place in both the mythology and reality of this season. Whatever your beliefs, it is a time when we can stop and appreciate the simple treasures of nature and the coming light after the winter solstice.
