Oh gosh my family calls me the baking queen haha. Especially for Xmas!!
I will be making
Rollout Cookies( with icing)
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Almond Bark Pretzels
Lefse (its a norwegian thing...super yummy rolled with butter n cinnamon n sugar)
And a xmas choc. Chip cookie (with red n green chips)
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
Thats the standard list although I may make more if i see a recipe I wanna try I add to the list. And addons vary year to year. And I have all these cute christmas buckets that i store all the cookies n such in. Lol My pantry is usually full of the buckets!
I usually do, and I make LOTS of cookies and give a bunch away. But since this year we're flying out to be with my parents in California for the holidays, I'm going to hold off on baking, since my mom has decided since all 3 of us (I have 2 sisters) will be home that weekend before Christmas, we will do all HER holiday baking for her (she gives away cookies as well). I figure baking with my sisters is way more fun than baking alone, and I really don't need to eat twice the amounts of cookies
I usually do a pecan pie for my dad, sugar cookies for my mom (she says I can't come to Christmas if I don't bring them), and then more sugar cookies and other random goodies for DH and kiddos. I have a candied almond recipe that is YUM, and I will be adding those to the rest.
That's about it, though, aside from making lots of homemade bread and rolls for Christmas day.

I usually do apple pie, lots and lots of cookies (the types change every year), biscotti, pumpkin cheesecake, and my personal favorite brioche. Christmas morning we have brioche french toast with a egg casserole bake or something.

I LOVE baking, too!! I'll make a bunch of different cookies this year also....I already have a ton of new ones pinned on pinterest!! And always my husband's family classic; santa's whiskers (so good!) My bunch usually includes a thumbprint cookie, peppermint bark, something with a hershey kiss, and something with red & green sprinkles! lol
My step-mum and I make mince pies together every year, and my specialty is meringues. I usually make dozens and dozens and dozens of peppermint meringues and chocolate meringues, and fill up tins to give out as gifts to neighbours and teachers and friends. We also make brownies for Santa instead of cookies. It's my husband's gramma's secret recipe that she gave to me as a wedding gift, and they're AMAZING.
