What to bake this holiday season 2022

A guide on what to bake this holiday season.

Baking is one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season.

From cookies to cupcakes, there is something for everyone to make.

Here are a few items you can make this year :

Gingerbread Cookies

Find your basic gingerbread cookie recipe along with your gingerbread cookie cutter. These sweet treats are so yummy and can be great for the holiday season.

Especially if you create a gingerbread house to go along with it.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are a staple especially for Santa! I love a good chunky chocolate chip cookie because it just taste better to me.

Your basic chocolate chip recipe consists of flour, egg, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate chips, baking soda, and a few other ingredients.

It’s always fun to play around in the kitchen when it comes to recipes like this.

Snickerdoodle Cookies

I love snickerdoodle cookies, they are very yummy in terms of sweetness and chewiness.

Here is a recipe of some yummy snickerdoodle cookies from Life, Love and Sugar blog.

Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes

These are so yummy and once you have a good combination of flavors and crunch … you have a reward winning cupcake. Okay maybe not that far but you get it.

I typically bake mine homemade but you can use a box of strawberry cake mix and create your crumb using Oreo Golden cookies and strawberry Jell-O.

For icing, I typically use a whipped kind.

7 Up Cake

This cake is simple to make as well, it’s really just lemon and lime as flavoring with your basic white cake recipe. You fold in the 7 Up after everything like your flour and butter is mixed.

Soda brand 7 Up offers a recipe on their website.

Sugar Cookies

This is a Christmas staple. I bake sugar cookies almost every single year. It’s a simple, starter baker recipe you can do.

You already have the ingredients at home and probably can make these asap. I like to add sprinkles and icing to my sugar cookies to add more flavor!
