Okay, you all think I am crazy! I know this in my heart. But, that is okay as I also know I am slightly crazy.
I have started plans for my holiday baking. You may ask what? Why? When? I try to keep a running list of items I need, the basics – unbleached flour, whole wheat flour, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, dates, almonds, walnuts, sugar, Splenda, Stevia, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon (something I alway seem to run out of). The list could go on forever but I will stop.
Today, I signed up for a cookie exchange – virtual – for December 3. I am trying to set up a cookie exchange at my home in December. I love to bake.
Here is a partial list – with links to entries with recipes on them, or at the very least pictures – of what I am making this holiday season.
Spicy Almonds (I also have a cinnamon sugar recipe but my family likes the spicy variety best.)
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (because everyone always asks for these)
These, along with gingerbread cookies in a variety of formats and possibly some scones, will fill my table and my kitchen in the upcoming weeks.
