Over 40 of My Favorite Christmas Recipes & Posts!

Today I want to share a list of some of my favorite Christmas Recipes! Do you plan on baking this holiday season? Well you should be!!! I always start my holiday baking about a month in advance and freeze everything. This way when Christmas rolls around I'm not stuck in the kitchen trying to get everything done. So without further delay here are some of my favorite Christmas recipes from over the years. I hope you find a few new recipes.

Thanks for sharing your favorites. Everything looks so Wonderful. I used to do a lot of holiday baking but have cut back on the baking the last few years but I still make a few of our favorites.
Our large freezer had quit working (now being used to store our left over paint in) so I do more of the no-bake items now.

This is such a wonderful post, full of some of your time tested old favorites. I have made many of them. I love the eggnog bread so much. I found a recipe for homemade (alcohol free) eggnog on Mel's Kitchen Cafe last year that is so delicious. Maybe I could use some of that in the bread this year. Thank you!!!
