Christmas Cookies and Bread

Wow have we ever been baking up a storm!

Of course though Santa needs some cookies and Zach sure does like those Christmas cookies!  Zachs favorite is the peanut butter blossoms.

To make the doughs for the cookies we always do a basic recipe. For the peanut butter cookies we add peanut butter to the dough.

Our dough consists of:
-Sugar
-flour
-baking soda
-baking powder
-eggs
-water
-butter
-vegetable oil

Now of course these vary based on the type of cookie dough we are making as to how much of what goes into it.

We made candy cane sugar cookies with some peppermint extract to give a different taste.

Casies favorite part of cookie baking is the sprinkles!

Our family is also big on different flavors of bread.

We mixed up different batches of bread doughs, some Banana nut, cranberry, and of course pumpkin bread-everybodies favorite.

We made mini loaves of bread too for a more one setting loaf of bread for our bread lovers in the family.

We also made some candy that Zachary really likes. He even ate the tray that I had a mishap with and they weren’t too pretty.
