It's Holiday Baking Time!

Get started now on your holiday baking so you'll be ready for guests and gift giving!

I have been busy in the kitchen whipping up some of our favorite Christmas cookies. Have you started your holiday baking yet?

I always enjoy making cookie trays or tins for my friends and family. I have found the best way to do that is to bake them over a weekend and put each type of cookie or candy in its own container in the freezer. Tins, Tupperware and even shoe boxes work well.  When I'm ready to make the tray, I remove all the boxes from the freezer, arrange my cookies, and put the rest back in the freezer. Simple!

Once I bake all our favorites, I am free to try new recipes throughout the month. I'm always in search of a new favorite to add to the mix!

I was experimenting with creating a photo collage, which was fun, but I couldn't figure out how to link the photos to the recipes. So I'll just list them here, starting with  the Almond Crunch in the bowl, and going clockwise:

Almond Crunch
Selma's Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolate Sherry Cream Bars
Rocky Road
Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies
Almond Roca Squares

But that's not all! For more delicious dessert recipes, visit The Big Green Bowl and get started on YOUR holiday baking!

Happy Baking!
