Nov 22nd 2015

What is a Holiday without the sweets to go along with it?  And let's be honest, half the fun is baking the goods! So, we thought we would compile a list of cookie/sweets/desert recipes that will expand your baked goods list of must-haves for many more Holiday seasons to come! These baked goods are recipes that we could not simply keep to ourselves, and we just had to share them with you all! So here you are folks. Our top 10 recipes:
  1. Classic Christmas Gingerbread Men.  You can not go wrong with this Holiday classic.  The spice of the gingerbread is a staple during this time of year.   1883167

  REAL QUICK before you move on: Remember that one time you made an amazing batch of sweets that you wanted to serve to everyone but somehow you did not have a platter worthy of your baking masterpiece!?  Let's not let that happen again. Wendell August has you covered. How about a piece from the Wintersong collection? Here's one I would recommend for this season: xl_13522715-WINTERSONG-SERV-TRAY_for_web Here's a link to all of our serving trays: AND NOW, back to the food!!

  10. Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies.  If there are two things that make us feel warm and cozy (Chai) and Holiday (Eggnog) at the same time, I'm pretty sure it is the duo flavors of these cookies.  Admit it, you already have the pan sprayed and the mixing bowl out.  HAPPY BAKING!! :) eggnog-cookies-sl
