Weekend links: Christmas baking edition

The cold snap we’re currently experiencing has further spurred on my holiday baking efforts. In case you’re in the same boat and looking to warm up the kitchen, today’s link love is a round-up of delicious recipes from some of my favorite bakers and bloggers.

From gingerbread biscotti to holiday profiteroles, there’s a recipe for everyone in my list of Christmas-themed sweets and eats.

But first, take a peek at a handful of gingerbread projects sent in from readers who jumped on board the after school gingerbread project. Didn’t they do a fine job? This makes me so very happy.
