I've taken off this week so I can focus solely on baking! It's the perfect week for it - we just had a snowstorm over the weekend so everything is blanketed in fresh fallen snow and feels so Christmassy! I've only made the gingerbread cookies so far, so I better get crackin'! Christmas is almost here! I have all of the trees lit, music playing and the whole house to myself!
Today among other recipes, I'm making my famous Caroler Kid cookies ~ I love making them because there are SO many possibilities! Ear muffs, scarves, hats, long hair, short hair, blond, brunette...I make each one unique!
They're so sweet tucked into cellophane bags with a little tag that reads, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas..." surrounded by musical notes! Perfect for school treats, to give to your church choir, or for a Christmas Caroling Party!!
Here's a fresh batch from the oven waiting to be decorated...
And here's a (messy) little gingerbread house me and my son put together from a kit...we had so much fun doing one last year!
We also whipped up a super quick batch of peppermint candy cookies in festive red and green...
What are you baking for Christmas?
