  1. If I bake these treats I have a feeling it’ll be like Christmas shopping at an outlet store…one for you, one for me.
    Great round-up!

    so i might have totally ruined a batch of red velvet bundt cakes yesterday (only two of them came out of the pans!) but i’m totally going to smash the crumbs into some little jars now a la that swedish chocolate cake :)

  3. Jorda says:

    I wish I had never looked at this…I want everything!!!

  4. Bec says:

    I’d be the star of the show if I bought any of these with me to Christmas lunch!

  5. Wonderful treats. Food gifts are ALWAYS appreciated!

  6. Ala says:

    Kill me now! I mean, don’t. Because I still want to enjoy every single one of these little treats, especially those adorable palmiers ;)

  7. Wow, these all look fantastic. I’ll definitely have to try a few of them out!

    Sooo I think I’m going to bake all of these and gift them to myself. :D

    1. Alana says:

      You took the words out of my mouth! That’s exactly what I was thinking (to myself).

  9. I could give my husband those bacon sweet rolls and he would be so happy on Christmas morning. No need for any other gifts.

  10. I will take one of each, thank you! Seriously, if anyone made any single one of these recipes for me, we would be best friends for life.
