Christmas Baking Begins

Christmas is such a fun time for so many reasons.  One of my favorites is the food; Christmas candy, cookies, and those special family recipes.  To keep the traditions going and to pass down those family recipes I went shopping and bought all the yummy ingredients.
Yesterday I had my nieces and nephew, ages 5, 2, and 8 months.  So while James napped his sisters and I made candies with rolos, pretzels, and M&M's.   Then when DD got home from school she played with the kidos while I made peanut brittle.

Today chocolate covered pretzels and my grandma's Chocolate Christmas cake are in order.  Do you bake at Christmas?  If so, what sweet smells are coming from your kitchen?

  1. Oh yes...must bake!!! I've done peanut butter fudge and Dark Chocolate almond fudge. I'm now cooling Sugared Pecans. Can you smell them? I can't keep my hands out of them. It's Holiday Hips season!

  2. I start baking Thanksgiving weekend and make 2 or 3 kinds of cookies each week, which i freeze. Then we give presents of cookies and fudge to family and friends and I don't have to make ANY desserts from the 24th on until the loot is all gone.

  3. I still have most of my baking to do, and some may not happen this year. Which is probably fine because I am the one who nibbles the most.

  4. Certainly do. Favs are, shortbread, christmas mince pies and fruit Christmas cake. Crazy food for the summer time but we do come from an English background.

    Cheers
