Christmas Baking

Cookie treats
Good morning! We have baked our cookies and treats and many are on their way to family right now. The rest are in our freezer for later this week.

Gingersnaps
~Gingersnaps~

Shortbread
~Whipped Shortbread~

We also tried several new recipes this year and all were a big hit...

Tuffles
~Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles~

Truffles
More peanut butter truffles rolled in red sprinkles. The girls and I renamed them Sugar Plum Tuffles!

Snowballs
~Chocolate Snowballs~

Almonds
~Brown Sugar Almonds~ They are so good!

There are links for the gingersnap and shortbread recipes. Scroll down on my main blog page for the other recipes. Are you busy with last minute Christmas preparations? I'm off to wrap presents!

These all look so good. I'm gaining weight just thinking about eating them. The sugared almond recipe is something like what we do with pecans.

Love the way you packaged your goodies- if I were your neighbor- I would love to recieve your treats.

I think Sugar Plum Truffles is a perfect name--their rightful name. Don't things like that just give you a thrill?

Erin said...

How yummy! I am going to start my Christmas baking this afternoon. We are snowed in so I thought why not! Yours looks fabulous!

Everything looks yummy and my time to get myself out there to the kitchen and make some cookies or a batch of candy is evaporating as I type.

You clever girl Kelli - those look fabulous.
