Christmas Baking

I’m a little late to the party with this one, but with just 16 days to go until Christmas, the time to bake is NOW! Here are some of my favorite holiday treats:

Buche de Noel

Not only does it look impressive, it tastes AMAZING! It does take a little bit of time to put together but in my opinion, it’s totally worth it.

Matteson Squares

These are brownies topped with mint frosting and dark chocolate. My grandma’s maiden last name was Matteson, and all 5 of her kids (my mom and her siblings) are pretty much obsessed with them. We have to bake multiple batches of these every Christmas because they disappear FAST!

Lydia’s Austrian Raspberry Shortbread

My sister and my husband both LOVE these. They were always a huge pain to make until we realized that the frozen dough could be grated with a food processor instead of by hand. Grating the dough makes the texture unlike other shortbread, and the layer of jam in the middle is a sweet addition.

Candy Cane Fudge

Probably the easiest fudge recipe EVER…Crushed candy canes make it perfect for Christmas!


These little sweet breads have become a Christmas morning tradition for us… they go perfectly with coffee and presents!

What are your holiday favorites? Please leave a link or recipe in your comment…I’m always looking for new Christmas baking ideas!
