I am happy to report that the holiday baking did occur; late night on December 23rd, and the afternoon of the 24th, before I hosted my family for Christmas Eve dinner. I ended up baking gingerbread cookies, pistachio shortbread, and chocolate covered peanut butter balls. All were successful, thanks to the help of my hubs and my friend Amy.
Didn't get pictures of the pistachio cookies or balls, but here are some pics of the gingerbread.
I packed the gingerbread, pistachio cookies, and balls into holiday Ziploc containers for the neighbors and friends and family.
Did you bake this year?
