The one Big Brother brought home for Christmas was thisclosetonotdry. (As with all baked goods, the panettone is best eaten the day it is baked.) In previous years, I've sliced, toasted and buttered for a few days and then dumped the rest. In the spirit of wasting not, I found the best solution to use up the leftovers.
I will admit, however, to an ongoing desire not to waste. One item, my nemesis, which always gets only partially used, is that darn quart of buttermilk. I use one cup and then manage to forget about it in the deep recesses of the fridge. The inevitable dump down the drain occurs after it's waaay past due and is stinkysourclumpy
Have you been baking up a storm already? I've only just begun. I've been mostly making and freezing the dough so that when there's an event, I can bake the cookies morning of. As a Christmas present to Brother #3, I'm freezing assorted cookie dough balls so that he can have fresh baked cookies whenever the mood hits.
Crack Toffee- this year I'm adding some pretzels on top.
I like the addition as it balances out the sweetness with its
salty, crunchy presence.
White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
Almond Roca Pretzel Cookies- my new favorite compost combo
(I'm really digging the pretzel crunch and salt, can you tell?)
What's on your list? If you care to share, I'd love to expand my cookie horizons!

I'm always on the hunt for a new Christmas cookie to bake. These looked like they were fun, festive, and fabulous to take to a holiday party.
Please be patient and wait the 2-3 minutes before putting them on, or else you'll get something like this—
