Christmas Baking

I am behind in my Christmas baking, but it is finally getting underway.  I started with an easy no-bake recipe, Almond Balls, for a cookie exchange. I have some Sugar Cookie dough in the fridge waiting for me to roll out. I bought all the ingredients to make Chocolate Caramel Cookies, because Christmas isn’t complete without chocolate and caramel.

Of course we’ll make a batch of the Christmas cookie poster child, Spritz Cookies, and it’s sibling, Russian Teacake (or Mexican Wedding Cake or Snowballs, it goes by a number of aliases!).

I’m also pretty certain The Husband will be expecting at least one pan of Nanaimo Bars. Although I sometimes add in different cookies in the Christmas line up, these are family traditions that certain Tartlets would not want to forgo. What’s in your cookie tin?

  1. After talking to Thing 3 I think that i might make my peppermint pinwheels a tradition. Especially if I get the help of all 4 ladies.

  2. I just love your blog- you can even make potatoes beautiful! Wait- that’s not a potato– I have never had a jicama. I should have asked you bring desserts last night… Maybe next time!

  3. The nanaimo bars are calling my name. Way to catch up on Christmas baking.
