Christmas Baking

Christmas is a season of beautiful decorations, snowmen, carols, and treats! Everyone’s inner baker comes out this time of year, and we are delighted to share some yummy treats with you! Baking is such a great way to spend time with the people you love, and join in community over a common adoration for sugar and sweets. Here are our top ten recipes for this Christmas:
