For personal, palatable satisfaction, it's really hard to beat cinnamon rolls.
Sure, you can fancy them up with sugar frosting but any way you go about it, they are just PURE YUM! I include recipes in my January 2011 posts on this blog.
As for cookies, I have not yet begun my cookie-baking frenzy. I'm wanting some new ideas, or maybe twists on old favorites but, especially, I'm on the look-out for cookies with real eye appeal, especially with the pressure of cookie exchanges that can be so competitive! Some sites I recommend for cookies and holiday baked goods:
You'll find photos and recipes for a range of difficulty levels. Happy baking! Send your holiday baking thoughts, experiences and photos to share with others if you like. I enjoy the feel of making cookies. Then, while they're baking, you begin feeding the other senses with the wonderful smells and the artistry of the visual display. Oh, yeah...it's almost time to start!
What is your favorite holiday cookie?
