Christmas Treats To Make With Kids



Holiday baking is my favorite and we are quite behind this year but I’ve still been trying to make time to cook with Piper since she loves it so much too! Here are a few recipes that I’ve saved to try — and I’m also sharing how we made some of the treats you may have seen me share on Pinterest. We got these adorable matching aprons from Minted – and I can’t wait to pull them out year after year to wear as we bake together.

We are going to make my grandmother’s coconut macaroons and raspberry thumbprints this week!


Don’t have the energy or patience for a full gingerbread house? Try these cute doors!

I was inspired by this recipe to make our own trees — see how ours turned out below!

I love to make simple star cookies with Piper. We got premade dough this year – and worked in flour to shape it into a ball before rolling it out and using a cookie cutter. Then we topped them with a super simple buttercream recipe and lots of sprinkles. Could not be easier or more fun for Piper!


Piper is really into snowmen so I’m going to try these with her since I think she’ll love the idea! I also personally love snowball cookies!
