Christmas Baking, Yay!!

The decorations are up and now it's time for the baking to begin! Here are a few of the recipes that I'll be making this weekend.


Gingerbread
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup molasses
1 egg
1 cup boiling water

Sugar Cookies
4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla

Chocolate Ginger Bread Cookies

Sounds interesting, though I'm still trying to imagine the combination.

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Peppermint and chocolate. . . need I say more. It's THE best combination ever!

Shortbread
Always a classic.
