Final preparations are in place. Baking is done! These are my Christmas baking traditions. I have a few foods I make every year and it’s so fun to make these foods and enjoy them each year. Today I’m sharing what a few of those foods are along with photos.
The foods can change each year and evolve over time. You can even make new Christmas food traditions. As long as it’s something you begin to repeat over time it’s a new tradition!
Christmas Baking Traditions
Original Chex Party Mix
Butter Ball Cookies
Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies w/Cream Cheese Frosting
Let me just say this was the first time I’ve ever truly made sugar cookies. I followed this recipe for cream cheese sugar cookies and as a true baker would, I’ve tasted the final product and they are spot on.
But can I just say this was a bear to tackle? I mean sugar cookies are time consuming to make! Then add in this whole frosting biz (also made from scratch) and I’m done. Whew!
Having Christmas baking traditions is a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season, enjoy great foods you normally only have once a year and enjoy time with family and loved ones and friends. I love having a few meals or foods I only make once a year at Christmas.
I look forward to having these special foods each holiday season and it’s a real treat when you only have a certain meal or dish once a year. My traditions usually include pies, cookies and this past year a nice Christmas Day dinner and a Christmas Breakfast Strata for breakfast. I look forward to making these foods again next year.
