2011 Holiday Baking Guide

2011 Holiday Baking Guide

Filed under the “highlight of my month” column, there are still 17 days until the universe resolves to kick carbs … and sugar … and butter (except not if you’re Norwegian) to the curb in the new year. This leaves us with more than two full weeks to challenge the stretch threshold of our favorite spandex couture.

And so I present to you a selection of seasonal sweets featuring all of my butter-filled, chocolate-dipped, sprinkle-topped favorites:

For more festive fare, check out my 2009 and 2010 holiday baking guides, and get a taste from around the Web with treats from a few of my favorite food blogs:

    This is great…thanks for sharing! Ironically, I was just thinking this morning that my habit of Christmas cookies for breakfast needs to come to an end shortly.

      I agree, Kelli! I have had more butter and sugar in the last two weeks than I care to admit :)

    Well, I’m definitely part of the spandex couture elite this year although, I must say, it’s been quite worth it. Your roundup of recipes is just lovely — and tough to decide on a favorite (always a very good sign!).

    Can I start the 2 weeks over again?? I want to make all of these! Those pecan pie bars look sinfully rich and decadent!
