Christmas cookies are one of my favorite traditions. I always make a massive amount of cookies – both traditional family favorites and new ones – to share. We bring the cookies to every holiday party we’re invited to, and then fill some containers for recipients of the church’s wish tree and make up a big platter to go to the soup kitchen’s Christmas dinner.
These were one of my new tries for this year. I was drawn in by the color – it’s always fun to vary the cookie tray up with more color – but the subtle flavors really won me over.
Caramel apples are so fun – and synonymous, for me at least, with fairs and being outside in the fall. Dark Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Pears are their classier cousin – a little more refined and perfect for your holiday table.
I’ll willingly confess that for years I’ve wanted to be the person that could easily whip up something chocolate dipped. I always thought there was some huge secret I was missing out on – and it turns out there was… good chocolate.
Gingerbread is my favorite holiday flavor. It may be because my German grandfather always sent us enormous batches of gingerbread cookies, but for me the flavors of gingerbread are just synonymous with the season.
This dip is the easiest gingerbread dessert you’ll find – no bake, and ready for company in 5 minutes.

It’s the final #FreakyFruitsFriday of the year, and I’ve saved the best for last! How do I know this one is good? Well, I brought it to book club and came home with one slice. If you saw the spread our book club puts on, you’d understand what a feat that was!
This cake featured two of the awesome “freaky” fruits Melissa’s Produce sent – passion fruits and blood oranges.
