And just like that, the 2019 holiday baking odyssey has come to an end. As always, it was a hoot and even though in the 11th hour I swore I’d never do it again, I’m already dreaming about what to do for next year.
If you followed along with the 2019 Holiday Baking Analytics, you already know the stats. I used nearly 80 pounds of sugar, 36 pounds of flour, 29 pounds of butter and 45 pounds of fruits, nuts and other add-ins. I made nine types of cookies this year yielding 3,761 units. We mailed 22 boxes and delivered another 30 or so in person. Folks, my work here is done.
But, just in case you’d like to make your own, I’ve included links to each of the recipes below.
Cheers and happy holidays to all!
or as we call them in our house, Schweddy Balls
Our house looked like a tornado hit it for a day or two.
There was no theme, but I did have a lot of fun with colored duct tape (seriously–get some, it’s a good time).
And a new company for labels, Paper Culture.
I promised we stuffed as much as we could into each box.
Pre-purchasing labels from USPS is the way to go.
As an added bonus, each and every box (and most of the tissue paper) was checked for safety and construction by our quality control crew.
