Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Every year, I try to think of the best gift for my mom…and I’m always stumped. You would think after all this time I would figure something out. For the mom who loves to bake, why not make her a super sweet gift…from scratch? On AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com, there’s an eBook full of printable recipes for homemade ingredients like butter, vanilla extract and more. What I love about these recipes is that not only are the base for all cookies, cakes and other such delightful baked goods, they’re easily put in cute containers and can be given as gifts.
Here are some of my favorite baking recipes that can also serve as completely adorable mother’s day gifts. Little tokens like these can easily be the beginning of traditions passed between mother and daughter.
