Holiday Recipes To Sing Carols For

By in Journal

It’s officially the holidays! Christmas will be here before we know it and the time to gather, exchange gifts, and celebrate friends and family has arrived. We thought we’d pull together a few of our favorite holiday treats on Pumpernickel&Rye for you to enjoy this year.

Hazelnut Butter Cookies

If you love peanut butter cookies, then this elevated treat is for you. It makes a great holiday treat.

Apple Gingerbread Cake

This recipe got the attention of BBC GoodFood Magazine last year when it was featured on their Instagram feed, and boy were we thrilled! It has all the classic hallmarks of an amazing Christmas cake. Give it a try this year!

Norwegian Rømmegrøt

This basic cream porridge is just what cold winter mornings called for (or a quick before bed snack). It’s simple, sweet, and absolutely delicious.

Peppermint Almond Bark

As easy as melting chocolate and smashing some candy canes and you have a classic Christmas treat. Time to gear up for that holiday baking weekend!

Peppermint Chocolates

This is an adaptation of a recipe from my mom. Her high school classes used to make these by the tray full and I couldn’t wait to sneak off the bus after school and grab a few from her classroom. Of course over the years she made these at home too. They are super easy and extremely delicious.

Cranberry Sauce

It doesn’t get more basic than this and if you want a classic, fool-proof cranberry sauce you can make at home – then this is it. Avoid the canned substitute this year and make it fresh.

Pumpkin Pecan Bread

Dessert breads are among my favorites and this Pumpkin Pecan Bread is a great holiday treat. The warm spices, pumpkin goodness, maple icing and packed with pecans. It’s just too good to pass up.

Oatmeal Cran-Apple Cookie

When I first created this cookie, it was duly named The Christmas Cookie because so much of it reminded me of Christmas. The Oatmeal Cran-Apple Cookie is packed with everything we love about fall. Apples, Cranberries, and lots of nuts and those warm spices. You’ll love every bite.
