Let the baking begin!
Are you a holiday baker? Do you create tons of sugar cookies from scratch? Or maybe a favorite handed-down recipe that’s a family tradition?
My family isn’t super big on Christmas baking in particular, although I do think it would be great fun to have some kind of cookie exchange. I’m definitely a fan of making things from scratch; I love the process. And I do love to bake. I love that if I follow the directions just so, then I know (almost) exactly how they’ll turn out.
Here’s some favorite holiday food inspiration photos that I’ve been collecting to get you in the spirit of the season – let the baking begin! Sources at my Foodie Pinterest site.
I think these are the cutest cookies ever!
I’d love to know how to make pretty cookies like these – almost too pretty to eat!
Cute cupcakes; makes me think of those vintage Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer stop-motion movies from the 60s.
A clever new twist on a favorite – I think I’ll have to put my rice krispie treats in a muffin pan next time.
Candy cane marshmallows.
Hot chocolate layer cake w/ marshmallows
Melting snowman sugar cookies
Pumpkin whoopie pies w/ cream cheese frosting. Let the pumpkin love continue!!
Pumpkin bars w/ cream cheese frosting
Andes Mint cookies
Tiny little pancakes on a skewer – what a chic breakfast this would be.
Speaking of breakfast, I love the idea of these jam-infused butters paired with homemade buttermilk biscuits.
Broccoli & sausage egg “muffins.” This would be so yummy on Christmas morning.
Nutella-filled donuts. EASILY done w/ Williams-Sonoma’s ebelskiver pan. Ebelskivers are like little pancake balls. I like to stuff them with peanut butter, nutella, or jam.
Ok, this is not really baking, but I could not resist adding this. So pretty! Apple cider cups
Mini eggnog cheesecakes… mmmmm.
I have no idea where in this hemisphere you’d get strawberries that look this good, but aren’t they kinda cheesy-cute?
Frozen Banana Bites
And finally, a cute little igloo cake from Martha.
Whew! I’m hungry now! Must go scrounge in the kitchen for some chocolate …
