2016 Christmas Baking

Christmas baking is one of my favourite things to do this time of the year. I used to spend hours upon hours to stock the freezer and give goodies away to friends and family. Now I do not have all that extra time but I still make sure to squeeze in some baking time for our favourites and to share these experiences with Avery. She LOVES to bake since that usually means taste testing every ingredient she can and stealing one too many chocolate chips 😉



This year’s baking has a couple of themes – favourites and easy to make! Here is our 2016 baking list – which we have barely started!

Peanut Butter Snowballs – peanut butter AND chocolate? Sign us up!! These also sound super easy 🙂

Gingerbread Cookie Bars – I searched and searched for a non-cookie Christmas dinner dessert that was somewhat easy to make and found these. Gingerbread is hands down my favourite so I think these will be perfect to enjoy after turkey!

The BEST Ever Sugar Cookie As much as decorating cookies with a three year old makes me cringe it has to be done. I am sure she will eat more cookies and icing in the process than needed but that is what it is all about 🙂


Soft & Chewy Gingerbread Molasses Cookies – Again, Christmas is not the same without gingerbread cookies! I already made this and they are perfect, with one small change – reduce the baking time by 2 minutes so they are not too hard!

Turtle Stuffed Shortbread – This is an odd pick for me, as I am not a fan of shortbread of Turtles but I thought they sounded yummy and made them for Chad’s treat day the other week and they went off great – they were also very easy to make!

Chocolate Turtle Cookies – These are a household favourite so even though they are a tad more time consuming to bake I am not sure I can skip making them!
