Now I usually do a wordless version
but this morning I figured I would talk
yeah ~ there is a lot going on in this little brain
and I do not even have turkey on my mind like most of you!
I have pulled out my recipes
and started my Christmas baking list
now I don't bake chocolate chip for Christmas
but these pictures spoke to me
kind of like
"get off your butt if you want some of this"
not really ~ but I could hear that in my mind....
are these not just the cutest ~ you could make those anytime of the year also
in the new Canadian Living magazine
there is a recipe for these
and I just may take the plunge
and attempt to make them!
Now for my list ~ here are the babies I will be making
to enjoy over the holidays
this is a recipe that has passed down through the generations
Trevor is not a fan but I love them!
another family tradition
best with raspberry jam in the center
I started making these a few years ago
and they are great to make for a cookie exchange
they are my "go to" recipe
these are coconut/oatmeal cookies
with dates and either cherries or dried cranberries
it would not be Christmas without my grandmother's
shortbread recipe. I usually put them through the
cookie press but the dough can be rolled and cut too
another fun little addition to add to the sweet tray
I make these all year round for a change of pace
it is the same recipe as the ones above but you add
gumdrops instead of the fruit
so these are just the cookies on my list
betcha want one now!
What are your favorites?
Do you bake for Christmas?
Are there special recipes that have passed down
that you love?
