After arriving home from London a couple weeks ago, I had a craving for some baking. Never mind that sweets seem to be a staple of the holiday season, I was in dire need of some cookie dough therapy after spending nearly three months without making a single sweet. And so, propelled by this baking need and the annual Christmas cookie frenzy, I made the following treats (and the list is still growing).
Four (4) double batches of Chex Mix – various recipes. I highly recommend you go to Chexmix.com and try a few of the lesser known ones.
One (1) batch chocolate chip peppermint cookies
One (1) batch marionberry thumbprint cookies
One (1) batch pumpkin cookies
One (1) batch sugar cookies
One (1) batch nutmeg log cookies
One (1) DOUBLE batch gingerbread cookies
Two (2) batches peppermint brownies
One (1) batch caramel corn
Now it is time to get ready for the family dinner Thursday evening (aka MORE baking)
