We’re starting to think about Christmas baking here at Lazeme. Cookies, gingerbread and mince pies come to mind but what are your favourites to bake at this time of year? Do you have a holiday bake list?
Christmas cookies and cakes also make great edible gift ideas.
One of our favourite ideas is to bake cookies to hang on the Christmas tree or along garlands in the kitchen. Just remember to put a little hole in before you bake so that you can thread a colourful ribbon through and hang up to bring the festive spirit into your kitchen.
Another favourite thing we enjoy is the Gift Idea of popping all the ingredients in a glass jar for a cookie recipe, ready to bake. Finish with a ribbon and candy stick for decoration.
What are your favourite ingredients?
We love the smell of cinnamon and Christmas spices in the kitchen. Star Anise adds a touch of Christmas to your cooking, too.
If cookies are not your thing – what about chutneys and pickles?
Do you have any family recipes you cook every year?
