I love December! It is always a very busy month. This year, I still have everything going on in my normal schedule, and school doesn’t end till the 21st… but there are all kinds of Christmas festivities that I am making time for! Christmas shopping, present wrapping, plays, performances, etc. And this year, I intend to add one more thing to the mix. As I’ve been getting into baking and cooking, I am feeling a compelling need to bake and experiment with Christmas treats, and give them to family and friends. I’ve decided on a few recipes I’m going to try!
This first recipe is from Food and Wine and I love the fact that it is so simple yet so cute and Christmas feeling with the crushed peppermint. http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/peppermint-buttercrunch
These Chocolate Peppermint cookies are a recipe by Life made Sweet. They are seriously lovely looking with the chocolate and white chocolate contrast, topped with the peppermint. http://www.lifemadesweet.com/chocolate-peppermint-cookies/
This cookie recipe is from Spinkle Bakes, and I am excited to test out the bright Christmas colors in these cookies. I also bought some cute Christmas sprinkles for mine. 🙂 http://www.sprinklebakes.com/2015/12/lofthouse-style-soft-sugar-cookies.html
So we’ll see how these end up turning out! I will definitely post some pictures when I make them. I bought all my ingredients today so I’m ready to start when I have my next block of free time.
