Christmas Baking Crazy!

This weekend, Zach and I are headed south to see his family for Christmas, since we will be with mine on actual Christmas. We decided to bake his family several Christmas desserts to bring with us!

First we made Chocolate Cake Reeses Peanut Butter Chunk cookies.
SO GOOD. Chocolate and Reese's? You can't go wrong! Recipe here

We also made Chocolate Candy Cane Blossom cookies. I love how festive these look!
I almost wish I put some red and green sprinkles on them! Recipe here

And lastly, we made Eggnog pound cake. I can't wait to try some of this because I love eggnog!
The recipe called for cranberries but I didn't use those...just made the cake part. Recipe here

We tied up the desserts in pretty cellophane and ribbon.

We are also including some Mississippi State homemade jelly. MSU has a huge agriculture, animal science and vet department so we are able to buy homemade ice cream, cheese, jelly, juices, meats and so many other things.

Our favorite flavors are muscadine, mayhaw, and scuppernog.
We wrapped up these and placed them with the cookies!
I can't wait to share them with everyone and enjoy them!

What are you baking this holiday? What's your favorite recipe?
