Traditional Holiday Baking at its Best!

Well in my blog this past September I introduced you to the new Mini Baker and I thought that this month we could talk more about the Mini Bakers.  December is the time of year when you get together with family and friends you haven’t seen for a while to celebrate the holidays over dinner or even a cocktail party. Each year when I get an invitation to attend a party, I always bring a gift for the host or hostess to show my appreciation for the time spent to get their house ready and all the wonderful food that he or she has prepared for all of us to enjoy. Now that I have discovered these little Mini Bakers, I am going to make a variety of items that I can put into the Mini Baker and give out as hostess gifts. I want to share these recipes because they have been in my family for over 75 years.  I grew up enjoying these breads during Thanksgiving and Christmas and want to pass them on to you.  There is nothing like the smell of these old recipes baking in the oven that brings back all those wonderful memories of my mom and grandma in the kitchen.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Yesterday when I picked up more of these Mini Bakers I noticed that Crafts Direct now has serving trays to go with the Mini Baker and cute decals to add to the outside of the dish.  So I just had to try them.

Now all you have to do is attach a cute little decal on the side of the dish along with a bow on the top.  You have a perfect little hostess gift that can be enjoyed as a treat and the best part your host or hostess can keep the dish to enjoy other fun treats throughout the holidays.
