If you are--or aspire to be--the type of DIY person who sees any holiday or birthday as an excuse to grab the candy thermometer, you'll love the Christmas gift recipes we've gathered here. They include top-rated and surprisingly easy chocolate-walnut cookies, your own "house barbecue sauce," and ten more treats. But if that old "what I'm making for dinner is restaurant reservations" joke is more your style, we've got you covered too. Each edible gift recipe is paired with an online source for a just-as-delectable treat. So whether you make it, buy it, or buy it and make believe you made it, your friends and family will be thrilled.
