Christmas Baking

There's a whole lotta Christmas baking going on around here.
It's about time to start making some of those holiday recipes I've been collecting, don't you think?
Like this one from Family Circle, Saint Lucia Buns, from 1990.
I've always wanted to make these.
Here are some cookies from The Festive Christmas Cookbook, which first caught my eye in 2001.  They're called Marthe Nussbaumer's Dukatentalers, and I think it's high time Marthe's recipe came to life in my kitchen.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp Bonbons (with Rice Krispies!  Yum!) I just came across last week.  Good timing.  They are from the culinary mystery Final Sentence by Daryl Wood Gerber.

And then there are these nummy little appetizers. Tasty and simple, I've already made them three times in the last couple weeks.

You start with pita bread.  With a small cookie cutter, cut out circles then toast in the oven for about 6 minutes at 375 degrees. 
Top with a dab of whole berry cranberry sauce and a sprinkling of grated Cheddar cheese, broil quickly to melt cheese, and voila!  Yummy, healthy little snacks.  Perfect for munching while you're following your favorite football team.  I came across the recipe in a magazine advertisement; its origin, though, is from Healthy Seasonal Recipes blog.

So . . . any exciting Christmas cookery going on at your house?

Hy Lynn, same as you I guess, just lots of baking. One of my son's asked last night for a platter to take to a party on Monday night. It will be nice to make food to give away. I think food is better that way don't you?
I always enjoy seeing what you have been making. Have a lovely weekend.
