Bake Up Holiday Memories
(Family Features) For many families, the holidays are all about getting together to share old traditions that take place in the kitchen.
From rolling out sheets of dough to wrapping up cookies with a festive touch, incorporating baking into your holiday traditions is something that everyone in the family can join in on. Remember, successful baking begins with quality ingredients, so make sure your pantry is stocked with the essentials, such as Clabber Girl baking powder. Once you have everything you need, your family can create tasty holiday goodies and memories to last a lifetime.
Here are some baking traditions you can start with your own family:
Bake and decorate
Start a tradition of baking and decorating holiday cookies. Even the very young can get involved by placing icing, sprinkles and other fun goodies on cookies.
Make it a cookie day
Gather as many relatives as you can for a day of baking cookies. Start by pooling all of your ingredients together. Be sure to include a fresh can of Clabber Girl baking powder to ensure successful baking. Then, let the baking begin. With so many hands in the kitchen, you’ll have a little cookie workshop in no time. At the end of the day you can divide out the cookies evenly so everyone can share with friends.

Deliver holiday smiles
Baking is only half the fun. After you’ve baked and boxed up your goodies, make it a family affair to hand deliver them to neighbors and friends. The recipients will love the friendly touch almost as much as the tasty treats.
The tradition of baking festive goodies is one that every family member will look forward to each holiday season. Here is a new twist on a holiday favorite to add to your baking list:
