My house smells just LIKE ginger, cinnamon, and sugar! I am pretty sure I could put this smell in a bottle and sniff it all year long. I love the season of Christmas baking. Truly one of the most memorable traditions of my childhood, and now, it is my turn (yay) to make sure it becomes one of my own baby's sweet memories. Besides, dipping candy canes in the flour bowl and tossing cans of ingredients in the bowl to sift, I think we are off to a good start;)
P.S. I have kind of gave up on the sugar overload for Cam until December 26. I feel like it would be kind of mean to refuse to let him test out all of the hard work we have been doing in the kitchen. After that little taste test, the cookies have to stay high and out of sight, because the moment he spots them... "Kee-kie, Kee-kie!" If your still looking for a tried and true recipe for your Christmas cookie baking...we really liked this gingerbread from Food Network, and these no spread sugar cookies and royal icing from Pinterest.
