In case you didn’t know this about me, I love to bake and I have a major sweet tooth! In order to keep my weight in check, I usually try only to bake when I know I’ll be sharing my baked goods with others.
Several years ago, I decided as part of my Christmas gift to family and friends, I would bake goodies for them. This has become a yearly tradition now and I’ve added several more recipients to the list (55 in all!). When I posted these pictures on Facebook….
….I had some requests to share my recipes. Now, each year I try a couple new recipes to keep my goodie bag recipients guessing 😉 However, I always include 6 items because they are tried and true and have become favorites among my recipients. Pictured below (Wintertime Spice Tea is not pictured) are the goodies that result from the recipes that I’m sharing with you today. I’ve created a separate blog post for each recipe to keep this post from being a mile long 🙂
As a disclaimer, none of these recipes are original to me. They have all either been given to me by friends or I’ve found them in magazines or cook books, as you will see when you click on each recipe. I have, however, tweaked the original recipes for a few of these goodies and have included those tweaks in the recipes.
Now, without further delay, here are the links to each one of these recipes (Click on the photo of each one to view the recipe):
