Holiday Baking Ideas

What’s one of the best parts of the holidays? Baking, of course! Cookies, pie, cake, bread…there are so many delicious things to enjoy this time of year. It’s also an opportunity to carry on family traditions. Perhaps you remember a relative’s scrumptious pie or secret cake recipe, or maybe you help your kids make a recipe you yourself learned as a child. My family, for example, made sugar cookies every year that we’d decorate with brightly-colored, powdered-sugar icing. As a kid, I loved mixing food coloring into the bowls of icing, and then drizzling it over the cookies in fanciful patterns. I also remember my great-grandmother’s cookies–she made dozens of them every Christmas. My favorite were her potato chip cookies (don’t knock ’em until you try ’em!). What are your favorite holiday baking traditions?
