Homemade goodies for Halloween are one thing….Unacceptable, that is. Homemade cookies and cakes for Christmas are heavenly. I’m not sure what the difference is, exactly, but it is palpable. Hah!
This year, I’ve made several ‘gifts in a jar’ for family and friends. They’re among my favorite gifts to give…and receive! Homemade Body Scrubs, Body Butters, Cake Mixes and all sorts of other wonderful things have already been carefully combined. Now, I’m starting to think about freshly baked treats. After all, we’re just a couple of weeks away from the big day.
I usually make a Glazed Caramel Cinnamon Monkey Bread Tree and give it to my mother-in-law on Christmas Eve for their Christmas morning breakfast treat. Now, I have a very nifty pan that will allow me to make little mini loaves to give to everyone else at the Christmas Eve party! How fun!
