Christmas baking has begun in my house. I’ve been sick for the third time in the span of a couple months so I started late this year. I sure love Christmas and don’t let anything slow me down especially if it means I can bake/cook for my family and friends. The funny thing is I don’t have much of a sweet tooth…however, savoury foods is another story. Yesterday I spent the entire morning and afternoon baking while my daughter was at school. I might of went a little overboard – is there such a thing?!?!
I made Eggnog cookies with an Eggnog icing…some without icing as well, Brownie Bites, Shortbread sticks dipped with chocolate and some without, Blondies, Gingerbread Cookies and Salted Caramel Cookies.
Speaking of Eggnog…I’m the only one in my family that actually likes it. They won’t drink it but they will try it if it’s in a form of a cookie haha. I look forward to it each year and wish that it was available all year round. This year I might try and make Frozen Hot Chocolate for my family since they don’t care for Eggnog.
My daughter wanted to make Gingerbread cookies so I whipped up a fresh batch with her when she got home from school. This is just some of her beautiful creations, we ran out of time yesterday so the decorating continues today after her Christmas concert tonight. She plans on giving each of her classmates a cookie and a Christmas card.
Christmas for me is about spending time with my family and I know that not everybody is lucky enough to even have that. So it’s important to me to make someone else feel a little loved this Holiday season. And my way is sharing my baking because it’s something I enjoy and it makes me happy to do so. Everyone shares/gives in their own way and there’s no right or wrong way. Sometimes we think we need money to help out but in fact that couldn’t be further from the truth…try giving someone a big hug and see how that makes you feel. May we never forget the true meaning of Christmas.
