Baking and Cooking

Baking and Cooking

Baking plays an important part in the Christmas holiday.  It reminds all our senses that this is a special time of year.  Our noses take in the aroma of freshly-baked cookies.  Our mouths taste the creamy, smooth texture of fudge.  Our ears are filled with the joyous sounds of children helping make sweets in the kitchen.  Our fingers tenderly dip into the jar of homemade rock candy.  Our eyes take in the breathtaking view of the dessert table on Christmas day! 

Think about how baked items have played a part in your Christmas celebrations while you journal about baking for Christmas.

What foods are a “must have” for you at Christmas?  This includes items that you want to make that say “it’s Christmas” to you.  

Quickly ask your family about the items they like to have around the house or at get-togethers.  You might be surprised at the items they choose!

Do you plan to bake all in one day, or bake over multiple days around events or gift giving times?
