Merry Christmas!

Ohmygosh Ohmygosh! Did you notice? Christmas is in two whole days! No really, where in heck did December go? Wasn’t Thanksgiving like… yesterday? It so was… I remember!

Honesty people I haven’t even started to wrap one of my sixty-three thousand presents or clean a square inch of my house! I’ve been too busy baking these cookies in between some heated games of Words With Friends and listening to a little Michael Buble Christmas. Have you heard it? It’s all my ears will listen to! It will put you in the Christmas spirit and make you show off some serious jazz hands!

So I’ll be dancing to Buble {flashing those jazz hands} while I’m decking the halls and mad frosting some sugar cookies, but before I go, I thought I’d post some of my favorite Christmas-y recipes so far on SS. It’s a small collection… but it’s solid deliciousness!

1. Peanut Butter Pretzel Kisses 2. The Best Pecan Pie 3. Sugar Cookies  4. Salted Chocolate Peppermint Bark 5. Eggnog French Toast Sticks and Brown Butter Maple Syrup 6. Simple Vanilla Frosting 7. Giant Ginger Molasses Cookies 8. Holiday Punch 9. Mexican Hot Chocolate Toasted Pecans

Now try not to get too many paper cuts while tearing into those gifts!

    With those gorgeous treats I think the family will forgive you for a few specks of dirt. I am going to go check out the peanut butter chocolate pretzels. I knew a few people who would enjoy those, including myself!
