As we get closer and closer to the holidays, the kids and I get excited about baking Christmas themed goodies. If you can’t wait to dig into some holiday, sugary confections, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve scoured the web for some of the best recipes for the holidays. Let us know how yours turn out or which holiday cookies and cakes are your favorite!
