Since the stores have had Christmas stuff out since before Halloween, I suppose I can update my SEASONAL button and share all these winter and Christmas-themed sweets and treats from archives. I not-so-secretly don’t mind the early arrival of Christmas, by the way, seeing as it’s my all-time favorite holiday. Oh yes, fellow Washington DCites, I turn on 97.1 the second the round-the-clock Christmas music starts and I keep it on that station until December 26th. That’s why my daughter knows so many Christmas songs.
I have so many winter and Christmas treats and sweets, I better group them by theme. Here are just some of my favorites from over the years:
Of course, I must start with the most famous-est cookie I’ve ever decorated (the cookie is famous, I am not, since no one knows I made the original here five years ago). The MELTING SNOWMAN COOKIE!! Maybe that needs another exclamation point. That melting snowman cookie kit you’ll see in Target? My idea. (Nope, I get no credit or income from that. But I do get to see it stare at me on the shelves. Yay.)
