I could use a team of elves about now, how about you? Every year I have high aspirations of baking, decorating and crafting in addition to shopping, wrapping presents and sending Christmas cards. I’m a planner, but no matter how hard I try my mind just doesn’t want to think about Christmas in July or even in October for that matter. I’m also an obsessive idea collector so it doesn’t help that I scour Pinterest every day looking for ideas. I’ve gathered 10 holiday drink and 10 dessert recipes which I think look delicious.
I decided to focus on drinks and desserts, because this is the time of year I tend to overindulge in both. I make cinnamon scones every year which are a family favorite. You can find the recipe HERE. I also make my husband’s favorite thumbprint cookies and I usually like to try at least one new cookie recipe every year. There are so many to choose from that it’s hard to decide on just one. I’m going to a cookie exchange this year and I’m thinking of making number six. I made number 10 last year and they were delicious. Click on each link for the recipe.
1.Almond Raspberry Shortbread Cookies These are very similar to the Thumbprint cookies I make every year.
Please click on the link for each recipe. I’ve included some non-alcholic drinks as well. I’ve made this non-alcoholic sangria several times and it has been a big hit.
