Christmas is less than a week away, and no doubt your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and all other social media platforms are starting to show signs of baking. In addition to making you hungry, it could be causing some anxiety – what are you going to make? The old standards? New favorites?
Not to mention, that cookie swap thing – at work, at church, with your book club. If you’re like me, you might have some family recipes you love, but the task of multiplying them for a bunch of people can be more than a little stressful (I do not maths well).
Well, don’t worry, because if either of these holiday heart attacks are waiting for you, Good Housekeeping has your back. Because that’s what they do.
That’s right – 75 recipes. Treats. All sorts. You’re bound to find something that pleases (and even excites) everyone who’s coming in and out of your house over the holidays, and the recipes vary as far as time and complexity, too.
This one contains those favorite recipes already configured for large batches, plus a few you might never have thought about, but are sure to have everyone singing your praises after they snatch a few during the big swap.
If you love baking (or even if you don’t), do yourself a favor and grab one or both of these books. You can’t put a price on feeling confident and relaxed with a house full of people and kids hopped up on sugar and the promise of presents, right?
So, go ahead…and order a bottle of wine, too.
