Favourite Things Friday Vol 89 – Christmas Baking

It is about that time of year again, time to fill the freezer with sweet treats for the holiday season‼

I always have such a hard time narrowing down what to make. It is just the two of us so I don’t need to make too many things but it is nice to have a variety.

There are a few MUST HAVES,

For me it is Puppy Chow, I LOVE this stuff, I probably go through 2 batches each Christmas, YUM!

For my in house taste tester it is Butter Tarts! He can’t get enough of them. This recipe is an old family favourite; it is truly the perfect Butter Tart.

My best friend Brenda is coming for a visit so I HAVE to make her favourite cookie, the Ginger Krinkle! These soft and chewy ginger cookies are the bestest!

Now, beyond those 3 things I just don’t know what to make,
Do I go with Sugar Cookies?

They are both fantastic...How can I choose??

Do I make my aunt’s famous Peanut Butter Balls?

Or my Dad’s OACB’s (Only at Christmas Brownies)? Oh the decisions!!!

I always like to toss one or 2 new recipes into the mix each year.
This year I am thinking Nanaimo Bars, they are totally classic and an old family favourite Saltine Almond Bark!

I think that I will make myself the BEST Christmas Cocktail and try to make a final decision!

What are your must have treats for the holiday season? Any special family recipes you just can’t live without? 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I will be in my kitchen covered in flour, chocolate and red and green sprinkles if you need me!
