Christmas is almost here! Can you believe it?! This year has flown by so quickly. I am getting very excited for Christmas to come, and I think having a kid now makes me even more excited than usual.
Every year at Christmas time, I bake up a whole bunch of Christmas cookies, wrap them up in pretty packages, and gift them to friends and family. They are always a huge hit, and I love that I don’t have to spend a ton of money. I also love that you can bake cookies ahead of time and freeze them until you are ready to gift them. It saves me so much time during the busy holiday season. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
I like to experiment and bake new cookies each year. This helps me to work on my baking skills and also keeps the recipients from getting bored with them. I like to find cookies that look incredible, but aren’t overly complicated to make. When you’re baking cookies in mass quantity, that’s necessary. I also like to use these 6 kitchen tools that make baking cookies a breeze. I swear, these tools will change your life if you love to bake cookies.
Something else I just stumbled upon that will make baking sugar cookies a breeze, is this Chef’n Cookease Christmas Cookie Cutter & Stencil Set. With this, you can cut out 5 different cookies at once! That will save so much time in the kitchen! You can choose from this stencil to cut out a Christmas tree light, stocking, candy cane, Christmas tree and Santa Claus, and they also have one that includes an ornament, snowman, gingerbread man, gingerbread woman and snowflake.
Don’t forget to grab yourself an adorable Christmas apron, so you don’t get flour and other baking ingredients all over your nice clothes!
