It dawned on me in the wee hours of last night that I had better get started on my Holiday baking if I am going to get it done in time for gift giving. I generally try to give a small tray of cookies and what ever else I make to each of the neighbors and then take another large tray to Christmas.

If you are baking this year, what are you making? Who are the lucky recipients of your tasty treats?

If you have recipes that you are willing to share, please post them too!

I do baking, mostly the standards chocolate chip, sugar cookies, peanut blossoms (the ones with the Hershey kisses in the middle) and some no bakes too. I usually make a tray for DHs work and sometimes the neighbors and maybe daycare too.

here are 2 no bake recipes that are yum!

I am going to revise my baking list this year. Partly to make things gluten free so I can eat them but also to make things dye free (so DS can eat them) and low sugar because my favorite neighbors are diabetic.

We generally make Walnut Coffee Cake Loaf (an old family recipe), Chocolate dipped shortbread, frosted sugar cookies, fudge, jam thumbprints and Mexican wedding cookies. We are also contemplating making a gingerbread house from scratch, but not sure we will get to that this year.

I will be making cookies and other treats that I can think of for the ladies at the daycare. Found out with all of the shake-up (new director) there are 23 ladies to do gifts for, so no cash gifts this year. They will be just choco chip, sugar, peanut butter, etc.

Last night I decided I wanted to do some baking next weekend when my father-in-law comes to visit. Also, give some to my sister and mother-in-law that are in town. Then I got to thinking today, maybe I could send some to my family through the mail. Is that possible? Or even safe to do that? I want to make some peanut butter fudge, a few different type of cookies and maybe some bread.

I think you can send baked goods in the mail. My brother plans to do just that next week. I would think that if you used a Priority Mailer it would get there and still be good since Priority Mail is 2-3 business days. Maybe mark "fragile" on the box so they don't throw it around and make crumbs of your cookies.
