I think the last time I knitted was at lunchtime at work the week before our holidays started. I have been baking instead. I had to make gingerbread of course, and I made three kinds of biscotti. Biscotti was made first, so that I had some for gifting.
Gingerbread biscotti was next. My first attempt got overbaked the second time, and was greatly enjoyed by the dogs. They all love gingerbread. I haven't found a photo of it yet.
The next type was chocolate chip cranberry almond biscotti from a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix recipe. They were good, just not as crunchy as the others. Here they are in one of my fancy Martha Stewart cookie boxes.
For the past two years at work, we have had a brunch on the last day for faculty. This year's was December 16, and I made mini pecan stcky buns and cinnamon rolls, using Pillsbury crescent roll dough.
