Making a list of Christmas baking and making [View all]

I'm going to make a pan of baklava, Mexican wedding cakes. I'll make a low-carb, gluten-free nut roll and some rum balls. My grandson would like cinnamon hardtack. I might make fudge. That's the one I'm not sure I should make. Too tempting. There are many wonderful bakers on the family, and my kids get cookie plates from all of their friends who are also wonderful bakers. We all observe a low carb or gluten free diet.

Who is baking this year? If you share your plans, maybe I'll try something new.
