‘Tis the season for Christmas cookies, candies, and all other forms of sugary delights. The best part of the Christmas season is sharing these things with others.
In honor of my mother and in light of God calling us to love others, we’ve compiled 50+ shareable baked goods.
- low sugar,
- gluten free, and
- plain ‘ol yummy treats
so that everyone will find something special to eat.
My mom was always so good at sharing Christmas sweets.
During the holiday’s I remember Christmas cookies, candies, and such always flowing lovingly out of our kitchen. Every year she’d put together plates for neighbors, teachers, friends, postal workers, and more.
We didn’t have a lot of money but mom always found a way to load those plates with gingerbread men, sugar cookies, fudge, aplets & cotlets, chocolate covered cherries, and more.

Bar cookies & Brownies to Share
Bar cookies and brownies are one of the easiest holiday sweet to bake and share. One pan can produce 8-16 (or more) shareable sweets. What brownies and bars will you be sharing this Christmas?

Quick Breads for Sharing
The best part about quick bread recipes is they can be turned into muffins, sliced, or baked in mini pans. Most grocery stores have shareable mini bread pans and these quick bread recipes could easily fill 2-4 of those mini pans. Who’s going to be blessed by one of these holiday quick breads this year?

Mini Cheesecakes to Share
Mini cheesecakes are one of my favorite sweets to bake and share. They’re the perfect two or three bite sweet after a rich holiday meal or with an afternoon cup of tea.

Christmas Candy for Sharing
Christmas candies hold a special place in my heart because of those childhood memories I shared earlier. Make friends, family, and complete strangers feel extra loved this Christmas by sharing some of these Christmas candies with them.

May your Christmas be blessed and the joy of sharing bring,
- smiles that last forever,
- memories that never fade,
- and above all…the hope of Jesus to all.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
We love you and wish you a very Merry Christmas.
