Yes! We love to have a baking day and make all sorts of yummy treats.
I often will make a double batch and freeze some. They are just as amazing and it is so handy to just pop them out of the freezer.
This is a great idea if you have Christmas parties coming up and want to bake some items ahead. You can spend more time prepping early on to avoid last minute stress and chaos.
I always try to do as much as I can before the holidays so I can just sit back and enjoy time with my friends and family. That is what it is truly about.
