Christmas Baking

This evening I am spending time baking treats for Chad's coworkers and I just love Christmas Baking.  Don't you?  I am making homemade chocolate fudge and the best ever sugar cookies.  I am really looking forward to going to my sister Amie's house for the holidays we are already planning on making a Gingerbread House with Aidan and maybe we will make cookies too!  So if you are interested in my recipes I am going to list them below and if you have any easy recipes or best practices for making Gingerbread House that you would like to share please do. 
Happy Christmas Baking!
