Christmas Recipes to Bake with the Children
A great way to keep the kids entertained this winter season and get them all fired up and excited for Christmas Day is to bake seasonal recipes with them.
There are so many dishes to choose from; Christmas stocking cookies, Gingerbread crackers, sparkly Christmas cupcakes and Heart Cookie decorations and much more.
Have fun and let the festive season inspire you to bake tasty treats for your family and friends; although they might end up looking too good to eat!
Get really imaginative with glitter, icing, gems, chocolate, sprinkles and edible glue and make scrumptious Christmas Village cookies, Christmas Holly, Snowman Cupcakes or a Cookie Mix Jar; the possibilities are endless.
