I’ve put this together the past two years, and I’m continuing the tradition again this year. We’ve got some old favorites and some of my more recent favorites today, so I hope you’ll be able to find some ideas for your next baking adventure.

‘Tis the season for goodies!

Crackled Sugar Cookies


Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies


Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Christmas Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs (<—use this recipe & top with store-bought icing)


Raspberry Almond Gems

Vanilla Glazed Cranberry Apple Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Almond Buttercream Frosting


Mexican Wedding Cookies

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies


Cookie Bars

Brownie-Cookie-Toffee Layer Bars

Butterscotch Blondies with Chocolate Glaze

Chocolate Raspberry Bars

Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Other Goodies

Dark Chocolate Turtle Graham Bars

Oreo Truffles


White Chocolate Oreo Cream Squares

Toffee Almond Fudge

Fudgy Frosting <—this frosting is seriously good on top of cake mix cookies and sugar cookies!

I’ve got a few new recipes heading your way this week too, so be on the lookout!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone! Smile
