Christmas Baking

My reports are DONE!!!

DONE I tell you!

Finally, it's time to unwind, slow down my pace of life and do some of the things I enjoy.

Let's start with some baking.

I have done Christmas baking every year since I was in university, as far as I can remember.  Some years have been more intense than others but I think it is a part of getting into the Christmas spirit.  In Singapore it is especially hard to get excited for the holidays because of how bloody HOT it is.

So what's on my list this year??

A second round of Pumpkin Cheesecake - because it just went over so well at Thanksgiving.

Also, a second round of Pumpkin cookies, though slightly modified to incorporate the popular Christmas trend of "thumbprints" - more on that later.

Gingerbread, because Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it.  Plus they are so much fun to decorate!

Peppermint Pinwheels

Holiday chip cookies - I paid $8 for the blasted "holiday" M&M's so these better turn out amazing!!

Stay tuned for recipes - and likely photos of me with icing all over my face....
