It is officially the Christmas season! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! While we are barely out of our food coma, I’m already so excited to start baking for Christmas. There is something nostalgic and magical about traditional Christmas cookies and the memories they bring back, and something fun and exciting around incorporating the classic flavors of the season into new versions of cookies. It is always fun to see what other people make each year so I’m including my list below, but I would also love to know what you are baking for the holidays – both traditional and new!
Shortbread – this is super easy and makes a great gift
Meringues with chocolate chips
Butter pecan cookies (these would be good too!)
Brown butter ginger cookies – my favorite!
Marbled peppermint sugar cookies
Chocolate peppermint cookies
Orange cranberry scones – these make a great gift too
Rosemary spiced pecans
Easy English toffee – another giftable treat
Baked Brie bites – I made these for Friendsgiving this year and they were a hit!
Chocolate covered marshmallows with peppermint
Whew, that’s a lot to pack in, but all delicious. Now, what are you baking for the holidays?
