It’s December, which means it’s time to give your child’s teacher a holiday gift. Avoid the last minute run to the bookstore or candle shop for another nice, but uninspired gift or racking your brain for a more original idea by baking a batch of delicious cookies instead. Baking is a great way to celebrate the spirit of the holidays and spend time with your kids.

Nothing says “I appreciate everything you do” than a tasty homemade gift you and your child made together. Any teacher is sure to appreciate the homemade treats made from the best ingredients.

Because you want your child’s teacher to feel extra special this holiday season, be sure to use a superior vanilla extract, McCormick’s Extra Rich Pure Vanilla Extract. Using this high-quality extract will anchor all the other ingredients – because the best ingredients make the tastiest treats! When the cookies are done let them cool and savor the aroma (just make sure not to eat them all yourself).

Want to make your holiday treats stand out even more? Try these fun and easy ideas:

• Instead of dropping spoonfuls onto the baking tray use a cookie cutter in the shape of an apple, holiday shape or your teacher’s favorite animal

• Ask a local pizzeria for an unused take-out box and make a large pizza cookie. For toppings use any candy you like and have your child write a note on the box (Or directly on the cookie with frosting), before delivering.

• Add McCormick Pure Peppermint Extract to chocolate cookie batter for a seasonal twist
