The count down to Christmas is on
Hopefully you’re doing the final touches on your shopping and are finally getting ready to kick back and relax in the holiday cheer. One of my favorite things about this time of the year is having an excuse to get together with friends and have a reason to eat some very yummy food! Who can resist desserts this time of year? By mid December, my sweet tooth is begging for more!While not all of us are bakers, here are some fun holiday ideas for all skill levels! Maybe this will inspire you to get in your kitchen, invite the girls over, and share some good old fashion baked goods. This blog the sure to get your mouth watering!Sugar Cookies-this holiday staple is something that can truly show off your creative side. Pick your favorite cookie-cutter and go wild! In fact, get your friends and family involved. Decorating cookies can be a great tradition!Rudolf’s Christmas Cookies-How fun are these? All you need is a peanut butter cookie recipe, red M&M’s, pretzels, and chocolate chips to create this masterpiece! I’m almost positive this could be a hit at any cookie exchange party.
Candy Cane Cookies-Here is a fun “twist” on regular sugar cookies. Simply dye half of the dough red! Create the candy-cane shape, bake, and done! With this same mixture roll the white into a thick log and wrapped the thinner layer of red around it to make the two-tone circle cookies. Add some Hershey Kisses and pop in the refrigerator. Yum!Assorted Desserts (for the non-cookie extraordinaire)- These ideas come to those of you who are looking to bring something besides cookies to your holiday gatherings. To start-check out these cupcakes! Make any flavor of your choosing, add an ice cream cone, and decorate it to look like a Christmas tree. Adorable! Next-an easy improvement to normal brownies. Simply shape and garnish to look like, once again, a Christmas tree. Finally Fudge-this perfect gift idea is so simple. Place cookie cutters around the baked good, add some candy, place in cellophane gift bags, and tie with a bow! I’m a huge fan of each of these goodies!
