Homemade Christmas Treats

We had a lot of reasons to bake this Christmas season.  I like to give gifts of sweets to teachers and neighbors.  Everyone likes baked goods and I like having a reason to do some mass baking.  This is the only time of year that I get to use butter and sugar by the pound!  We have dance teachers, a piano teachers, several teachers for Boothe's BSF class, several teachers for Magnolia's preschool, some neighbors and we had a cookie exchange at our church's annual Christmas brunch.

Here are the wonderful goodies that came out of my kitchen this year.
