Last year I got into some Christmas baking and came out with a few good treats to bring out anytime we had visitors. This year, I have already been approached by a neighbour to do some neighbourhood baking. The idea, is that if there are 8 people participating, then we all bake 8 batches of our favourite recipe and meet up to give out our baked goods to each other. After the exchange, we will all have 8 different baked treats to store in our freezers and to use over the holidays or for any occasion that comes up. I would love to read how other people handle treats for the upcoming holiday.
- How early do you start stocking up on your Christmas treats?
- Do you bake or buy?
- How many different goodies do you bake/buy?
- What are the names of the the treats???
- Other comments such as: special dietary considerations, your most requested treat at parties, the occasion for the treats (office parties, gift baskets, visitors at your home, kids), historical or ethnic story about the treat, etc.
