Is it really the holidays without a tray of freshly baked cookies and tall glass of (non-dairy) milk? I don’t think so. Some Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies are a great crowd pleaser, but you also can’t go wrong with some Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies or Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookies.

There’s nothing like a warm slice of pie topped with melty vanilla ice cream after a cozy meal. But then again….a drizzle of icing sugar on some warming Gingerbread Loaf sounds just as ideal.

Homemade fudge & bars are a great way to entertain a larger number of guests. Simply bake (or freeze), slice, and serve! I’d highly recommend the Sweet Potato Pie Bars, but don’t sleep on the Maple Pecan Fudge either.
