So many great ideas for holiday baking. Where do I start?

This time of year there is baking inspiration everywhere you look.  Oh, that looks good! Oh, I want to try those little tartlets!  The bounty of ideas is endless.  Before I know it my “goodies to do list” is ridiculously long.  There are certain goodies that I only make at Christmas time and my family expects their favorites to be on the goodie tray.  I absolutely have to stick to those but I will also bake some new goodies.  I found this cute little “Frosty Bite” at Sur La Table in Scottsdale, AZ this past weekend.  What a cutie!  And quite delicious considering he was likely baked months ago in order to be shipped out to the stores.  Regardless, he is my inspiration for this year! I am regularly to manage my baking – taking mini-bites out of my list – plus I am going to try miniaturizing these trusty family standbys.  As always I will share my efforts with you and provide shortcuts and techniques that you can incorporate into your own “baking to do list” for your holiday season.
