If you were to describe the holidays by a smell, what would it be? Pine needles? Burning logs in the fireplace? For many, it would be the smell of warm baked goods wafting through a home full of family and holiday cheer.
Enjoy an afternoon of family fun in the kitchen! Get the kids together to bake some festive treats. Cookies, tarts and cakes make for easy and delightful gifts for friends and relatives.
Try these Chocolate Krinkles, a favourite of egg farmers from the Roseglen Hutterite Colony of Alberta. They are a chocolatey sugar-coated cookie that’s sure to be a hit. Another fun and festive option are these Gingerbread Cookies that the kids are guaranteed to love.
These melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Bars or these Fudgey Brownies are also popular with all ages. Maple Walnut Tarts pair exceptionally well with a warm winter beverage.
Meringues are another great idea for a holiday dessert.
Happy Holidays and happy baking!
