It's That Time of Year

I love Christmas time! One of my favorite things to do this time of year is bake ridiculous amounts of cookies and other goodies while listening to Christmas music.
These are the trays of goodies I baked last year to bring to friends and family.

That's right. Two trays EACH.

Yes, I went overboard.... but I don't hear anyone complaining!
I have my favorites and pretty much make the same things every year. This year I wan to mix it up! I thought it would be fun for all of us to share our favorite cookie or candy recipe. Leave me a comment with your fav or if it's a recipe online you can just give me the link. Hopefully you all will participate and we can all try some new fun recipes!!
For me it doesn't feel like Christmas until I've made the famous Peanut Butter Kiss cookies. They are my favorite! I don't think I even need to leave the recipe - everyone loves these puppies!
Happy baking, friends!!
Pin It!

I never complain about snacks gone overboard... they look amazing girl.

The pictures are taken from Corbis- a site I LOVE and use all the time for graphics! You can find just about anything on there... I even adapted art from there for my gorgeous headers yesterday!
