If you read my post in The Night Before Christmas Series, you already know that for me the holidays are filled with baking!!! I am loving all the chances to bake with my kids and watch them learn and grow in the process - it might be messy, but it sure is fun!
To help with the mess, you need to check out the Barclay Kitschy Apron from Ruby Jean's Closet. This is such an adorable pattern with so much style. Whip up a couple of these and wrap them with some baking essentials and you have a perfect gift to place under the tree.

Want to make some cookies with your own children? Here are a few of my favorites:
Martha Stewart Lemon Cookies: These are going to become your new 'go to' sugar cookie. These are a light buttery cookie with a faint lemon undertone. The cookies hold their shape perfectly making them a great base for the traditional Christmas cookies - no more unrecognizable blobs! The recipe includes a great royal icing recipe for a very professional finish, or you could pair with your favorite butter-cream and they would still be sublime.
White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies: This recipe from Allrecipes.com (my go-to for any recipe need) is a great holiday take on the classic chocolate chip cookie. With dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, these look quite festive on a holiday tray or given in a tin or bag as a gift to the neighbors. *I sub out vanilla for brandy when I make the recipe.
Coraline (Button) Cookies: I am a sucker for the classic peanut butter blossom cookie at Christmas (you know, peanut butter cookie, Hershey kiss jammed on top - yummmmm). But thanks to Bakerella, I think I may have found a new version of that Chocolate/Peanut butter combination for this year. These would make such an amazing gift for any of your sewing friends. Just wrap a few in a cellophane bag, tie with a ribbon, and Voila!
