2 Weekends till Xmas: Baked Christmas Goodies

Well would you look at that? Christmas is only two weekends away!  Perhaps you haven’t gone gift shopping yet or you’re a little tight on the cash flow. That’s all fine, there’s still time to make use of what’s available to do this little weekend project: Baked Christmas Goodies. Now who doesn’t want to unwrap a loving gift of gingerbread cookies or shortbread? Everyone (well, mostly everyone) loves baked goodies!

Now for those who shy away from the kitchen, do not fear. Just roll up your sleeves and do not be afraid of getting a little floury. Baking is safe and easy as long as you follow the recipes closely. Leave the improvisation and eyeing measurements (such as a pinch of salt here, a dash of sugar there – whatever that means) for the skilled or the comfortable. Don’t worry, anyone can bake, even those who claim to have burned water!

So we’ve drooled over food blogs to bring you 6 bite-sized, wrap-able recipes to sit nicely under the tree until Christmas morning (or until somebody sniffs them out and has a nibble or two).

Just click away the links. They’ll bring you to the original blog with the recipe provided.
