Christmas Baking 2008

Here are the results of what we made this year:

  • Peppermint Fudge
  • Oreo Truffles
  • Strawberry-Vanilla Cake Balls 
  • Gingerbread Men
  • Decorated Sugar Cookies
  • Raspberry Almond Thumbprints
  • Apricot Almond Thumbprints
  • Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch Cookies

I think that’s it–some standards carried over from previous years and a few new things.  Gotta admit, I’m relieved I’m done.  Cookie baking is not my favorite thing–too putzy–but the children love helping, and I love sharing our treats with others (primarily Ryan’s co-workers).

Now, the goal for next year is to actually get them done before our church’s cookie walk so I can donate some.  That was the plan this year, but time slipped away, and I just didn’t get them made.  Haven’t looked at the 2009 calendar, but hopefully next year there will be more time between Thanksgiving and Christmas for me to get this stuff done!
