Happy Friday, everyone!
We are officially in the single-digit countdown to Christmas! And it is FRIGID outside in NYC today, oh boy. But I'm trying to embrace that "Hygge" feeling, regardless!
If work and life have been keeping you busy and unable to join in on holiday activities like holiday baking, I've got a perfect roundup of festive holiday recipes for you guys today to jump right in.
Many of these recipes are super easy and don't require much advance cooking or baking skills, so there's no intimidation factor here! Also, while a lot of these recipes are on the more indulgent side, most of these are gluten-free and vegan optional for those with dietary restrictions.
These are one of my bigger crowdpleasers, and they are perfect for gifting as well. Reminds me a bit of the Pepperidge Farm Verona cookies, but a whole lot purer!
Just made some more of these earlier this week, and it's a classic. Decorate these with your family, friends, and kids for a fun and cozy Sunday at home!
If you're looking to go all out on decorating cookies, you need a classic, solid base- this is iT!
Nothing like bringing a bunch of hand pies to make you the most popular person at the holiday party- you can make any flavor you want for the filling, too!
For curling up and watching Love Actually and the Holiday in fuzzy socks
Also a super pretty gifting recipe, made with healthy matcha instead of artificial green food dye.
For a super festive and easy brunch, 4 ingredients and a blender is all it takes!
Prep these the night before a party to serve in little shot glasses as hors d'oeuvres or in a jar for an easy yet fancy-looking breakfast for your holiday guests. Ridiculously healthy too even though it's like dessert!
I personally think a big jar of homemade granola is an amazing gift- nothing like having something healthy and delicious on hand for busy workday mornings!
These make the house smell like Christmas. Blend up a double batch for the whole family, Christmas morning.
These are a beautiful treat to make- can you imagine being served this as breakfast in bed?
