In case you're still looking for a good Thanksgiving hostess gift, I have one more. I made King Arthur Flour's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread last week and wanted to dress it up for a gift. This is a yummy recipe, but I strongly recommend adding 2 tsp. of cinnamon to the recipe. I made two batches of the bread, one with cinnamon and one without, and the difference was amazing. With the cinnamon it was heavenly. Anyway, this is not a recipe post--I'll let Jess handle that later this week.
First, did you see these mini loaf pans at Michael's for $1? So cute! But you don't need a cute loaf pan to do this. You could wrap it after removing it from your pan. After baking the bread and wrapping it with plastic wrap, I simply secured a 12" x 3" piece of patterned paper around the loaf. Then I tied a pretty ribbon around that. For the center I added a button. Thread one hole of a button with linen thread, pass it under the knot of the bow, then thread it back up through the other button hole and tie in a double knot. For some reason that button makes it look so much cuter, don't you think?
