Tis the Season!!
Time for Baking!
I love to bake…I try and bake something at least once a month throughout the year (it’s all I get time for with our busy schedule). At Christmas, I go crazy. I start about a month or so before and spend at least a few hours every weekend making something in preparation for Christmas.
This weekend, at my girl’s get-together, we are having a cookie exchange. Not only am I going to make the cookies for me, I volunteered to make Amy’s too. That’s 12 dozen cookies for the exchange. Then, of course, I have to make some for my family while I am at it or I will never hear the end of it from the children!
I also bake in preparation for our Christmas Brunch that we host every year. I make different kinds of loaves and muffins and then freeze them. This way I can make sure I get lots done in advance so I am not going crazy on Christmas morning.
So far, my list of baking items looks like this:
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Whipped Shortbread Cookies
Not sure what else I am going to bake. I am thinking about trying my hand at gingerbread this year. I think the kids would have a blast decorating gingerbread men or cookie cutter ginger cookies.
