Something’s Baking

I love the smell of something baking in the oven. With Christmas now over, I realized that I’ve done more baking in these last few weeks than I probably have over the entire year. I somehow squeezed in the time for scratch baking cupcakes, cookies, cakes and brownies. The baking is still going on in my house during this post-Christmas week and will likely continue right up to New Years. Here are a few of my faves that filled my kitchen with fantastic aromas this holiday season:

chocolate chip pumpkin bread
almond biscotti
pumpkin cheesecake
chocolate cupcakes
almond crescents
hershey kiss blossoms
sugar cookies
chocolate biscotti 
pumpkin cookies
chocolate chip cookies- everyone’s all time favorite!

Of course, attending a cookie exchange party helps to add to your variety of baked goods without adding to your time spent in the kitchen. I came home from that party with a ton of delicious home-baked sweets. A big “Thanks” to whoever came up with the fantastic idea of exchanging holiday cookies. I’ll bet it was a busy (and obviously very smart) woman!

    I made banana bread, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies. None as good as your chocolate biscotti though. Hope you have some left next time we see you!
