Christmas Treat Ideas

The Christmas tree and house are decorated and the holiday baking has begun!

Something unusual has happened this year, Dusty and I have all of our Christmas shopping done. Like, completely done. Purchased, wrapped and under the tree done. This has never happened before. Most of the time I'm scrambling and still shopping the days leading up to Christmas. The fact that I'm done shopping for everyone is a miracle and feels pretty darn good!

Now that shopping is out the way, I can focus on baking! And boy are there tons of mouth-watering sugary treats out there in the blogsphere! So many delicious treats and not enough days in the month leading up to Christmas...what is a girl to do!?!? 

Dusty and I have already made and enjoyed our favorite Domino Christmas Cookies. Plus I've already made and shipped off some Cranberry-Pistachio Christmas Cookies for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap (recipe/post coming soon!). All I have to do is figure out what I'm going to make next!

If you are like me and trying to figure out what treat to bake up next, here is a list of some fantastic baked goods from my favorite ladies in the food blog world! You will be sure to find some inspiration for holiday baking from these lovely gals!
