Christmas Baking

Amy Friendbaking, holiday6 Comments

Today we had the first of many family holiday parties. I put together a cookie tray, as I do every year. It was a small gathering so I only put out a few of each but the tray was demolished in five minutes! No kidding. The tray includes:
Molasses Cookies
Tiger Butter
Cranberry Shortbread
Chocolate Fudge
Chunky Peanut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Cookies
Gingerbread-White Chocolate Blondies
Crazy Judy
Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Crackles
Many of the recipes are from my new Martha Stewart cookie cookbook and from the Holiday Cookies magazine that she published in 2005. There are also some family recipes and a couple from friends. I normally make a few more kinds but I feel fortunate to have fit this many in during my baby’s very short naps.
Tomorrow I have to make Cranberry Nut bread. It’s our tradition to eat it Christmas morning!
I put everything in the freezer till the last minute.
What are you baking?
