2017 Holiday Baking List! (Tell Me What You’re Making!)
Ahhhh! How are we already here at one of my favorite posts of the year?! I can’t believe it.
I am SO in the holiday baking mood already. Max is super excited to bake cookies and I love having him help, even if it takes 67 times longer than it would if I did it by myself.
Speaking of! This is how I manage to bake a boatload of treats at the holidays for friends and family while Max runs around: I make a bunch of the doughs on one day and refrigerate, and then bake them when I can over the next two days or so. Totally works out!
First things first. Last year, my cousin Lacy and I made our first Buche de Noel and loved it so much. We are planning on doing it again! We usually spend one day together and will make that, along with Tracy’s citrus peels, her homemade amaretto and then whiskey pretzels or something of the sort.
Otherwise, these are some of the treats I hope to make for the huuuuge cookie trays we love to take people at Christmas!
salted dark chocolate chunk cookies because we can’t get enough.
peanut butter blossoms. my all time favorite!
perfect cut out sugar cookies. these are the BEST foolproof, simple sugar cookies. only recipe i use!
soft gingersnaps. i always double this recipe. sometimes i make four batches! everyone loves them.
mother lovett’s pink and green thumbprints. can’t have christmas without them.
annnnd mother lovett’s orange cookies. huge hit.
these bourbon soaked cherry oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. ooooh yes.
definitely a bunch of peppermint pattie brownies.
also these double dark chocolate peanut butter cup cookies. they are RIDIC.
SO I’d love to hear what is on your list this year! And what other fun things I should try?
