I discussed our baking with my family this week. Turns out they mentioned the things we made last year and were groaning with love for those items! One was a bit of a surprise...banana bread. I make that many times of year, so I didn't expect it to make the list.
This is what were making to enjoy in our home and give away:
Banana Bread (doubled)
Mint Chocolate Chip Bars (doubled)
Jam Thumbprint Cookies (doubled)
Peanut Butter Fudge
Last year some of our goodies were part of a school fundraiser. We are in a new town so I don't expect the need for this, unless the same thing is done here. I expect more of these baked goods will end up in the hands of my husband's coworkers.
It is tempting to try something new by adding on to the list. However, I think that would put us with far too many goodies. The best part is that most of these can be frozen so the baking of them can be done ahead of time. The pumpkin pie and puppy chow will need to be done when we are in the mood to eat them.
The next step is to come up with a grocery list for all these ingredients! After that making a plan to make the goodies!! I will keep you updated.
Do you bake anything for your holidays? Do you have a favorite cookie you look forward to each season?
