It is officially the Christmas season and there is no end in sight to the wonderful Christmas holiday treats you can make. There are recipes just about everywhere you look. Of course, we don’t all have time to make everything from scratch. It would be impossible given everything else that needs to get done. Instead, what I do, is take a few shortcuts here and there. There are so many fantastic store-bought things that can be the jumping-off point to wonderful holiday goodies. Here are a few favorites that you can pick-up and make!
