One of the things that helped me really get ready for Christmas last year was doing all my baking at the end of November. I was motivated by having a Christmas Cookie Week - nothing keeps you moving forward like posting about it publicly. Angie from Echoes of Laughter and I worked together to each share five yummy recipes for cookies and squares and we are doing it again this year!
I'm going to be baking up a storm this weekend and I'll be sharing with you a different cookie and bar every day next week. See there, I've done it again - publicly committed myself! Come back next week and find out how I did.
In case you missed it, here are the cookies and squares I baked last year (click on the name of the cookie to go to the post):
