You also might like to add a few savory bites for cocktail hour. Gorgonzola & Walnut Shortbread with Savory Fig Jam or Savory Parmesan Shortbread with Tomato Jam.
For a couple of years I did a baking party with my mom and her buddies at our local assisted living facility. Favorites included Root ‘n’ Tooty Good ‘n’ Fruity Oatmeal Cookies and Peanut-y Chocolate Chip Cookies. Both are the perfect cookies to help Santa keep up his strength on his long route. Want a more grownup cookie? How about Cherry-Pistachio Biscotti.
Then there are lovely homemade chocolates and candies! I need to get my act together and send off a batch of my Chocolate Almond Buttery Brittle to my niece in California. Be careful with this one, it is positively addictive. No less delicious, are my Chocolate Dipped Orange Caramels. For a luxurious treat, try my Chocolate Truffles. Christmas candies are a wonderful addition to your holiday buffet table and make great gifts.
Just be sure to save some time for yourself! Enjoy everything the holiday season has to offer and bon appétit!
