Christmas Baking

Four dozen cookies, two pounds of candied almonds, and about ten dozen muffins, all baked in two days. The complete list:

  • Candied Almonds
  • Green Tea Cookies
  • Modified these into Chocolate Blackberry Cookies
  • Russian Tea Cookies
  • Carrot Cake Cookies
  • Blueberry Muffins
  • Strawberry Cinnamon Sugar Muffins
  • White Amaretto Muffins
  • Rainbow Cupcakes
  • Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Butterscotch Muffins (which are possibly my favorite)
  • Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

    It took hours and would not have been possible without a lot of help, but they all came together, and I think everyone liked everything.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    I'm doing a lot of baking for Christmas. A lot. As in I'm planning on doing absolutely nothing but going to work, the grocery store, and to my kitchen on Thursday night so I can be ready for the EPH exchange on Friday night.

    I'm trying a lot of recipes I've never made before, so I'm definitely nervous things won't turn out. I can't share the full list of what I'll be making, but here's a tease as to some of the ingredients that will be featuring:
  • bananas
  • almonds
  • butterscotch
  • blackberries
  • powdered sugar
  • green tea

    Hopefully I won't be too tired to share everything about the hours this will take.
