10 Baked Goods Our Editors Are Gifting This Holiday Season

We take our baked goods seriously at Southern Living, and there's no time like the holidays to show off our favorite family recipes and start new baking traditions on our own. Over the years, our editors have perfected recipes from our magazine pages. They bring us joy, so come holiday season, we spread the love. Gifting friends and family a pretty tin full of baked goods is in our DNA. While you can't go wrong with any of our recipes, we have a few favorite holiday baked goods we gift year after year. The treats run the gamut from sweet to savory, traditional and not, with the likes of our King-Size Gingersnap Cookies, Cracker Toffee, and Cheese Straws all garnering recommendations. Preheat your oven, pull out your mixer, and tie on that trusty favorite apron. It's time to get ready for an afternoon (or several days, if you fancy it) of edible Christmas gift baking. And, while you're perusing these recipes, you might as well stock up on some of those essential Christmas cookie tins, too. Get ready to spread that holiday cheer, one cookie (or toffee, or Bourbon Ball) at a time.
