So, I said one of my goals this Christmas season was to bake a lot more than I did the previous year, and I accomplished that goal!!! Growing up one of my favorite memories of Christmastime was baking goodies with my Mom. As I am working on building new traditions between Scott & I, and future traditions for our kids, I knew that I just HAD to get baking. If I can't do it when I don't have kids, I knew there would be no chance of doing it when I have my hands full someday in the future.
So, I set out to make some goodies this week. I didn't get pictures of them all but I made a lot of yummy treats. I decided to make some goody bags for my co-workers as a Christmas gift for them.
Here are the pictures I did end up getting. I love baking and what a mess it makes in my kitchen...I try not to freak out but I really hate big messes!
I normally BURN my sugar cookies, so this year another goal was to make them not CRISPY but perfectly yummy and I must say I was proud of how they turned out.
