I usually dedicate an entire weekend in December just to Christmas baking. I usually make:

chocolate chip cookies

peanut butter cookies
sugar cookies
7 layer magic bars

I love to bake so I make many different cookies, cakes, and pies... I love bring them to my hairdresser, my doctor, my church, etc. for everyone to enjoy... I try a new receipe every year some make a big hit, and well others have not been as expected but that is OK.

Cookies: all of these will be double or triple batches
Chocolate chip
chocolate cookies with peanutbutter chips
Cut out sugar
Molasses
Spritz
Peanutbutter Blossoms (peanutbutter cookies with the hersey kiss in the center)
Peanutbutter surprise - peanutbutter cookies baked in mini cupcake papers with a reesecup pressed in the center

Breads/cakes: - regular and mini loaf sizes
Applesauce bread
Pumpkin bread
Orange Cranberry bread

Fudge

I am still going through my recipes so I may be adding a couple new things this year.

Christmas Eve I will make my pies for Christmas dinner: apple crumb and pumpkin.
Minta these sound delicious! My Hubby LOVES peanut butter. Do you have a recipe for the choc cookies with peanutbutter chips or the peanutbutter surprise? You may have posted them already and I missed them. I will be a hero if I make him either of these

Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies (recipe on back of Hersey's peanut butter chips)

2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups butter (or 2 1/2 sticks of butter)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 10 oz package peanut butter chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees
Stir together flour cocoa, salt, baking soda and cocoa, put aside.
In another bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture, beat well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Do not over cook. Cookies will be soft and may not look fully cooked. Cookies will puff when cooking but will flatten while cooling. Let them cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet and remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.

makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

Usually for Christmas I bake, bake and bake some more. Among the yummy treats on my annual baking list are: Softbatch Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint cookies, Pizzeles, butter cookies (spritz), oatmeal cookies, peanut butter chip cookies, sugar cookies and normally, I'll try a new recipe or two.

I usually just do cookies because I am very intimidated by expertise it takes to bake, but I really want to be able to bake my own pumpkin pies and pound cakes, so I will definitely be trying that this year.

Thank you holiday, and Minta for sharing those recipes.

MsChristmas, sounds like a fun party to look forward to. I wish I had relatives, and friends who would like to do such a thing.

Sunshine73, would you mind sharing your mint chocolate chip cookie recipe . I like mint chocolate ice cream, is the cookie similar?

ReineV, I know what you mean. I will bake the basics, and such, but when it comes to something like cheesecake, I only make the mini cheesecakes, and that is using Nilla Wafers. Have you tried making the Rachael Ray fudge...the recipe is posted online, and it is very easy.

Baking really isn't that bad. As long as you follow the recipe it should always turn out. Pumpkin pies are really easy if use canned pumpkin.
