holiday baking.

I wanted to share a few last-minute baking ideas for Thanksgiving. If you're anything like me, you will spend the day annoying your family by popping in the kitchen at random, unannounced times to bake unplanned sweets. Spontaneity is more fun and they always thank me later.

spice cupcakes with white chocolate cream cheese icing

White chocolate spice cupcakes are always a showstopper, and if you eat them without icing you can pretend like its an appropriate breakfast.

peppermint patties

These peppermint patties make me feel like a little kid while simultaneously reminding me of how little self control I have.

spice cookies

Isabel's spice cookies are chewy, moist, and everything a cookie should be. She's a baking goddess. (She even makes video tutorials.)

almond joys, round 2

Homemade almond joys are perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, my birthday, or any of the other 361 days of the year.

peach + blackberry crisp

This peach and blackberry crisp is seriously my favorite dessert of all time, but to make it fall-ish I swap the peaches and blackberries for apples and cranberries. Dare I say I like it better?

treats in mason jars

And maybe it's premature, but has peppermint bark in mason jars ever received a less-than-ecstatic response? The answer is no.
