Heat Up Your Holidays With Classic Baked Treats

Posted on Wednesday, December 19, 2018

Whether it is decorating sugar cookies or making gingerbread houses, baking is as timeless as the holidays. So, dust off those aprons and get those sprinkles shaking because it’s time for some fun!

From our family to yours, the first treat on our list has become our all-time favorite family tradition. Biscochitosare shortbread-esque cookies flavored with cinnamon and anise. They’re a simple treat topped with a sugar/cinnamon mix. Estimated prep time is 40 minutes, but during that 40 minutes your home will be filled with the most wonderful holiday aroma.

Next, we have a classic: The Gingerbread House. The gingerbread mix is diverse in that you can make a beautiful gingerbread home or a fun-filled gingerbread family! Decorating both is equally as fun but we’ve got to say, it’s much easier to eat family members than an architectural masterpiece (gingerbread family members, of course). 

Have you ever made your own fudge before? If so, you know how good it feels to eat home-made fudge. If you haven’t, that’s because whoever makes it eats it before you can get to it because it’s that good. We’re joking, of course, because not only is fudge fun to make but it also makes a perfect holiday gift! Pack it in a decorative tin and it’ll stay fresh for at least a week. 

Last but certainly not least, the festive and elegant linzer cookie. You can fill these little beauties with a wide variety of fruit fillings, but this particular recipe calls for that festive red raspberry jam. There’s nothing elegant about eating the entire batch of cookies in 2 days, but here we are making one of our favorite holiday treats. 

We could honestly go on and on with different fun treats like sugar cookies, apple pies, candy-cane brownies, cinnamon rolls, truffles – but we don’t have all day. We’ve got the perfect kitchenand now it’s time to get baking!
