It was another busy season of baking in our household. This year we may have set a new family record…we baked around 24 dozen cookies (and gave most of them away, thankfully…I don’t need that kind of temptation!). We also made two trays of Christmas cracker candy, two bags of chocolate dipped pretzel rods, half white chocolate and half semi-sweet, and about six dozen Oreo truffles, half mint and half regular (I went through about 2 1/2 pounds of Baker’s chocolate making the pretzels and truffles!). I think I’ll be sweeping up sprinkles until next Christmas, and I may smell like frosting and/or chocolate until Valentine’s Day, but we had a lot of fun!
Here’s what made the final cut…nothing really new or exciting this year. I definitely have a standard Christmas cookie rotation!
