I think I’m giving the neighbors Lemon Bread this year. and I usually give coworkers my “famous” chocolate chip cookies. I think that is all that will be a gift… now as far as baking in general… LOTS more!!

@MsMindle: That is an adorable idea! I’m definitely keeping that in my back pocket for the future!

I bake little treats all the time, but this is the first year I’ll actually be giving them for Christmas (M&M cookies, brownies, and wasabi crackers).
If you want to make something super super easy, buy a pack of Oreos, sprinkles, and some white chocolate candy melts. Melt the chocolate in a bowl, pour over the Oreos, and top with sprinkles. Bam. Homemade white chocolate Oreos.

We made everyone in my family beach themed ornaments since we went to Myrtle Beach together this year.

these are all so awesome.
@MsMindle: i’ve often made bark but not with the cookie cutter. great idea.
@lolot: those are cute.
this year i made some peanut brittle. i had a dinner party last week and gave some to my guests. the one guest loved it so much he actually ordered some to sell at his cafe. i gave him some bags to sell as a trial. he emailed me tonight. they’ve all sold and he would like a couple of more batches. i know what i’ll be doing tomorrow.

I always give homemade fudge! I effed it up last night though and had to go buy all new ingredients today and start over….UGH! It was one of those days!

I have been on a cake pops kick for a good year or so now! I’ll usually individually wrap them, and they make great little gifts. Take forever, though.
(I decorate them to be more holiday-ish, of course, this was just a random batch)
When all else fails, I’ll send a box of Harry & David pears! Sooo delicious!

Almond Roca. It’s legendary in our family, and not actually that hard to make. It is much easier with two people, though.

I’m doing a variety of cookies for a few relatives, and some spiced cranberry sauce that my parents freakin’ raved about (and still do every time I see them) when I made it for Thanksgiving.
My SIL usually does canned peaches or strawberry jam which is always a hit, and she makes bread and butter pickles for my grandma who is the only person in our family who likes them.

This year I’m doing pumpkin bread and gifting it in loaf pans to some of my family folks.
