Holiday Baking: New and Traditional Recipes for Wintertime Holidays | Sara Perry
38 posts | 2 read
The holiday season is alive with tradition, and nothing brings a family together faster than baked goods pulled fresh from the oven. Holiday Baking celebrates the six major events of the season with new and traditional holiday treats everyone will love. Vida Lee's Maple Pumpkin Pie will be gobbled up at Thanksgiving; there are three variations of rugelach for Hanukkah; Candy Cane Cupcakes are a minty delight for Christmas; Sweet Onion, Apple, and Cheese Tarts enliven a Boxing Day brunch; Brown Sugar Benne Cookies are perfect for Kwanzaa; and a Bloody Mary and Baked Mushroom Omelet on New Year's Day is the ultimate cure for a hangover. The recipes mix and match easily, whatever the holiday. Whether the plan calls for old-fashioned favorites or entirely new inspiration, the eighty-plus festive recipes in this baking compendium will bring everyone home for the holidays.

First official bit of holiday baking going down. I don‘t have a recipe and am just making it up from a post I saw on IG. If I don‘t post an after picture it‘s because it went horribly wrong. 🤣😂🤣😂

After seeing @abooknerdsparadise post about Mexican chocolate brownies I had to try them. And OMG these are SINFUL. I will eat the whole pan. Sweet Jesus. #wintergames #teamreadnosedreindeer

BookDragonNotWorm You make them sound so good I had to hunt down the post so I can try it myself! My mouth is already watering! 😁 13mo
Hestapleton @BookDragonNotWorm I made them with 3.5 teaspoons of cinnamon and 2.5 teaspoons of chili powder! 13mo

I found a jar of M&M cookie mix from my fiancee's cousins. With my hand pain, I didn't want to scoop & drop 24 individual balls. I converted the recipe to bar cookies. You can do this for recipes with a similar texture & 350 temp. Add up the ingredients for # of cups. 6-8 goes in 9x13 pan. Less than 6 goes in 8x8 or 9x9. Dough less than 1“ thick. Then multiply bake time by 2.5. If not done, add 5 min.

witchyreader13 Cookies baked at other temps can also be converted, but are a little more tricky. Find the formula here: https://www.kingarthurbaking.com/blog/2018/09/10/transform-your-favorite-cookie-... 14mo

Ok, so some may call starting with a box mix cheating, but I've been trying to find ways that I can still bake despite my hand pain caused by health issues. Cinnamon is festive for me and I love dark chocolate, so I pulled out a Duncan Hines dark chocolate brownie mix and doctored it up to make Mexican chocolate brownies. Follow box directions, add 3tsp cinnamon & 1tsp chili or chipotle powder, & bake. +26 pts.

Hestapleton Oooo that sounds DELISH! 14mo
MoonWitch94 Sounds delicious 😋 and it‘s NOT cheating! ❤️ 14mo
witchyreader13 @Hestapleton
So, I MAY have made a grunting noise like an animal in heat when I took a bite. 😂 I also MAY have eaten several while waiting for my lunch to cook. 😁

Thank you! I'm so used to baking from scratch. This year is a change in so many ways.

Hestapleton @abooknerdsparadise okay I‘m officially making these once I‘m out of quarantine! 14mo
witchyreader13 @Hestapleton ❤ I highly recommend the corner pieces with the crunchy edges. 14mo
witchyreader13 @Hestapleton I also suggest a little bit more chili powder. I would've liked a bit more heat to it. 🙂 14mo
Hestapleton @abooknerdsparadise will report back! 14mo
Hestapleton Um I was not adequately prepared for how amazing these were going to smell sweet Jesus. 13mo
witchyreader13 God, I ended up eating almost the entire pan myself in 48 hours. My fiancee only got a few of them. Lol 13mo
Hestapleton @abooknerdsparadise I‘m predicting that‘s how it‘s going to go here too! 13mo

I like that this separates recipes for Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's and some of the recipes have fun names but there wasn't much I was interested in trying. Could have used more pictures as well....I'm more likely to try a new recipe if I can see the finished product first. 🤷‍♀️

I have been cooking for two days.

There are like 50 various types of Chex Mix. This is a great one for those with a sweet tooth. I made this yesterday with the boys. Yes that is my picture.

I use a digital recipient keeper called Pepper Plate. I love it! It‘s on my phone, iPad, and online. Really nice when I‘m shopping

#wintergames #teamelectricsex #holidayrecipie +26

Ps I left out the peanuts and the m&ms

mabell Nice photo! And that sounds good! Does it have a caramel corn flavor? 2y
Chrissyreadit Are there any vegan Keto versions? 😂😆😂😆😂😂 I‘m sure it would involve cauliflower..... (edited) 2y
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit To be vegan I think you would just have to substitute the butter, but I don't know what with, and Keto TBH I have no idea what that entails. But they have so many recipes on the chex mis online. 2y

LibrarianRyan @mabell They do but I do not remember what it is called. 2y
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan I‘m just being silly cause I feel sorry for myself- Keto is low carb to no carb, high fat, high protein. Or water and cauliflower - and not vegan, vegetarian eggs and cheese. I would kill for your Chex mix right now. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit I could not do low carb. I could do sugar free, I could doo fat free, but please don't take my carbs. I love bread way too much. 2y

Trying to stay in the game (#WinterGames) by watching some holiday shows while I grade papers. Holiday Baking Championship is certainly many levels above Nailed It (but nowhere nearly as funny)!

Whipped up some butter pecan cupcakes with cream cheese icing and nutmeg brown sugar sprinkled on top. And by whipped up, I mean used boxed cake mix and icing from a jar. The nutmeg and brown sugar was all me though. 😂😂#delicious #tasteslikebananabread

TricksyTails Nummy!! WANT!! 4y
TricksyTails Recipe? 🙏😋 4y
Clwojick @TricksyTails lol! It was Betty Crocker Butter pecan cake mix, which I added a 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg and brown sugar. Then after icing I sprinkled some more nutmeg and brown sugar on top. 4y

TricksyTails Did you make your own icing? I love banana bread so if this tastes like it I'm running out to the store tomorrow!! 4y
Clwojick @TricksyTails no way, lol just Betty Crocker whipped cream cheese icing. It tastes like banana bread minus the bananas. But i bet you could throw in half a banana to the cake mix and the cupcakes should still set okay? I think? 4y

#12DaysOfXmasPhoto #day5 #cookies I used to do a lot of baking before I got sick. My husband jokes that it was my cooking that made him marry me & my kids put in requests for their favourites to be made for school. I was really famous for my choc chip biscuits (cookies) & used to make triple batches so everyone got some. I miss being able to just go out and mix up a batch of brownies or biscuits or my chocolate fudge. Sigh. #frustratedbaker

Beckys_Books I'm so sorry you can't do something that obviously brings you joy. 5y

Holiday baking for some friends today 😍 I adore Christmas and love making sweets for sweet people!

Zelma Love the Christmas trees! And are those buckeyes? 😍 5y
Seekingtardis @Zelma yes they are!! My family always makes them for the holidays! My uncle makes some pecan ones that are to die for! I haven't been able to copy them yet lol. 5y
Zelma Yum! So when can I come over for those treats? 😂😂😂 my family makes a bunch of traditional Christmas treats: chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge, black bottom cupcakes, peanut clusters, pecan sandies, raisin cookies, peanut butter cups...we finally had to cut back from all the baking and keep it simple now. 5y
UwannaPublishme Yum! 😍👍🏻 5y
