Holiday Baking Panic


Slightly panicked here with the baking situation so I've been scoping out the recipes.  I love shortbread and cherry tarts, but would like to add a few more delicious treats to my repertoire this year.  How about you, do you bake or have any suggestions? Here's a few that have caught my eye.

1.  Panettone | Gourmet Traveller
2.  Peppermint Brownie Pops, Bakers Royale
3.  Ginger Shortbread with Cherry Icing | Raspberri Cupcakes
4.  Millionaire Shortbread Bars | Jeannette Ordas
5.  Frozen Smore Cups | Hello Happiness
6.  18 Cookie Recipes for the Holidays | The Kitchn
7.  Champagne cupcakes with champagne buttercream | The Curvy Carrot
8.  Cake Batter Sugar Cookies | Sally's Baking Addiction
9.  Sugar Dusted Macaroon Trees | Martha Stewart

Ugh, I haven't baked a thing this season! But I'm hoping to at least do some gingerbread men with the kids tomorrow :)

I love baking. Today's my boyfriend's birthday, so I'm making cupcakes with gingerbread on top and mini doughnuts. There's so many delicious things I've found on Pinterest that I want to try. http://pinterest.com/bambooblossom/sweet-things/

Yummy!! The pink sprinkle cookies caught my daughters eye!
I finished my small amount of baking yesterday, Milk Chocolate Fudge and Naniamo Bars, the more I make the more I end up eating so need to keep it to a minimum ;)
Have a great day Jan!

I'm in baking craziness today. Gingerbread cookies. Mock Skor Bars and for the first time ever mint fudge. I decided not to go with sugar cookies this year and go with more candy. But those cupcakes mmmm....
