Christmas Baking Favorites New & Old

 Have you started your holiday baking yet? This week is officially my bake until you drop week. Between parties we have been invited to, a big party we are throwing, gifts for my Principle and Vice Principle, and my normal baking for the family's Christmas meals, I am going to give my kitchen a workout.

So far I have made two batches of Gooey Bars, a batch of Magic Cookie Bars and a giant Christmas Sheet Cake. Between now and the 23rd I will be making 2 batches of Christmas Sugar Cookies, 2 batches of UltiMINT Christmas Candy Cookies, Pretzel Toffee, Pretzel Pinterest Bites, Champagne Cupcakes, Crock Pot Peanut Clusters, Peppermint Bark, S'more Cookies and a few other things. (See below for most of the recipes)

What are you making? Have you started yet? Do you have family favorites that you go back to year after year? I usually stick to my family's favorites but each year I usually pick one of two new recipes to try.

In honor of what I am calling the Official Week of Christmas Baking, I am featuring some of my favorite treats to make and give as gifts as well as some of my new favorites that have been linked up by some fabulous bloggers at Mealtime Monday.

Tonight I will feature my personal recipes and then come back tomorrow for the round up of my favorite bloggers' treats!

Here are our family's all time favorite Christmas treats!


What are you baking this week?
