Do you do any Christmas baking?
I usually make these things every year.
I haven't even thought, yet, which cookies I am making this year. Hmmmm, let me think.
Peanut-Butter BlossomsWhoopie Pies Boyfriend cookiesSnickerdoodlesSugar cookiesGingerbread cookies
Gee, thanks for helping me get in gear and figure out my gift menu! LOL I'll work on posting a couple of these here, and getting the rest of them up at my recipe site!
Not much baking here for x-mas specifically....
I might make some of the sugar cookies I saw down below...those looked easy and good...and I MIght try a couple more cookie recipes that you all post...I think Emily posted a couple too that look really good.
I have Never been a bourbon ball fan...I can't see why folks like those!(lol)...course I don't like bourbon either so....
Also the sweet stuff like:Chocolate Crackle tops ( I call them my Triple Chocolate cookies)Christmas Bars which I got from iVillage, here:http://www.ivillage.com/food/recipefinder/recipe/0,13485,386769,00.htmlRum Balls
I end up sending a lot of this stuff to my parents in upstate NY as my mom does not cook or bake much anymore.
Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake (we have a whole cheesecake cookbook, sick I know:))Chocolate Mousse (quite a bit of work but oh so worth it!)Pecan piePumpkin pieApple cranberry struesel pieChocolate crinkle cookies (taste like chocolate gingerbread)Raspberry SquaresToffee barsNutcracker Braid (I'll definitely post this recipe tomorrow)Pumpkin Cranberry Pecan bread
I'm also participating in a cookie swap at work so I'll have some really yummy cookies that I didn't have to actually bake myself - bonus!!
We usually also make but think will cross off the list this year:
Mincemeat pieChocolate mint bars7-layer bars
I think that's about it! Of course I say that know - DH hasn't gotten his hands on the cookbooks yet!
I you get a chance, I'd love your chocolate mousse recipe.
