Christmas Baking Time – 2011 edition

Holy December! It’s here! I can finally turn on Justin Beiber’s Mistletoe my Christmas music and dance around my living room. I can finally decorate without feeling overeager and I can finally get into the spirit!

Nothing gets me into the Christmas spirit like Christmas baking. The smells of family favorite recipes, ginger, chocolate, and mint fill my apartment with sweet scents and memories. I genuinely feel an intense sense of happiness when something is in the oven. Who doesn’t though really?

This year I have a sassy line up of baked goods old and new and I’m so excited to share! What are you baking this year?
