What are you baking this season?
 
What are you baking now that the weather is cooler and the holidays are approaching? I attempted to make a chocolate biscotti recipe that we have yet to taste. We usually have eggnog cookies and ginger snaps this time of year. Would anyone like to share their baking recipes?

Well, I haven't started my Christmas stuff yet, I'm still doing the usual cookies, cakes etc that I always do. For Christmas I usually do some combo of these:

Maple cookies
Brown sugar shortbread
Thimble Cookies (swedish tea rings)
Regular shortbread (Same as the brown sugar one only with icing sugar instead of brown and put in a cookie press)
Squishy gingerbread cookies
Can't Fail Sugar cookies

Dina, Christmas is a big family affair in Greece. So unavoidably, I will have to prepare the traditional Christopsomo (Christmas bread) and Melomakarona (Brandied Macaroons dipped in Honey Syrup). Here is the recipe for the bread. The macaroon recipe can be found under the "cookies" section.

Well, for the first time in almost a year, I have a working oven. I baked a loaf of banana bread yesterday, and it's GONE already. 5 kids and two adults that like banana bread will do that, in a hurry.

I don't know what else I'll bake, except probably at least one more pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner, and maybe another kind of pie.

I might do my usual Sour Cream Struesel Coffee Cake, as PeppA has already mentioned that. However, I have several other desserts that I'd like to try.

Alix! It's great to hear from you. I'd love to have some of your cookie recipes, if you don't mind sharing. They sound wonderful. Decorations got started at our house tonight while we listened to Christmas carols and ate the biscottis. They were actually pretty good.

Boufa,
What does your Christmas bread have? Is it a sweet or savory one? I will check your Brandied Macaroons. Thanks.

Allen,
Aren't we thankful for our working appliances, especially this time of year?! I'm sure your Sour Cream coffee cake is wonderful. Would you post the recipe when you get a chance?

Peanut brittle
Big soft ginger cookiescookies http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...kie-29321.html

Bourbon Balls
Sugar Balls (a cookie that is half red and green colored with red and green colored sugars that are mixed into the dough)
Spritz

I havent really planned anything yet, but more than likely will be making peanutbutter cups and not sure about the rest just yet.

My holiday baking will be banana bread, linzer bars, oatmeal cookies, citrus poppy seed cookies and spritz cookies. For Xmas dinner I'll proably do a loaf or two of bread.
