Planning for Christmas Baking

It is getting that time to bake so today when we went to the grocery store I picked up lots of baking supplies. I think though I am still suffering from sticker shock over the eggs. Eighteen eggs $2.93. Ouch!

I usually try something new every year sometimes those things don't get made again. Sometimes they get on the permanent list.

This is standard every year...
Sour Cream Cookies
Foolproof Fudge
Cardamom Butter Cookies - I roll out to do cutout cookies
Chocolate Caramels
Molasses Cookies
Festive Bark

Then I made these last year and they were a big hit so I am going to do those again...Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies - chocolate chip cookie recipe with 1 1/4 cup crushed peppermint bark.

And I have a couple new recipes I want to make and then one old one I would really like to make again as I miss them. I haven't made them in probably 10 years. One new recipe I want to make is similar to an old recipe I made the jelly thumbprints....but going to try this one. And then Peanut Butter Blossoms is one I used to make and always enjoyed.

I always enjoy baking Christmas goodies. I make up plates and containers for friends and family. I also want to make scones as gifts. So I see quite a bit of baking in the near future.


  1. Prices are going up, up, up like crazy. Ironically, it's foods like eggs, vegetables, and things to make other things (as opposed to premade meals and nukie-food) that are rising in price. Scary stuff.

    Your post about baking got me thinking about my great-great-grandma's sugar cookies. And the eggnog cookies recipe I found last year. I should try those out...

    Good luck in your kitchen! May the products of the baking help offset the ingredient-price sticker shock!

  2. Thank you for the comment! You are so right about premade stuff not rising in price but all the stuff to make it and other things that is....very annoying! I hope you made the sugar cookies and eggnog cookies!
