December seems to be flashing before my eyes! So, to keep you filled in on the amazing treats that flashed by in November and December, I’m going to share with you My Favorite Winter Treats. Hopefully this helps you figure out a few breakfasts, snacks, desserts and gifts!
My Honey Apple Cake with Salted Vanilla Bean Cashew Frosting is a real showstopper! You’d never guess how simple it is!
Pumpkin Rosemary Spoon Bread is like grits souffle! This is a simple, throw-together side dish for your dinner table.
Pie but WAY easier! Apple Galette with a buckwheat crust is a sweet and beautiful gluten free treat!
Hot Honey Vanilla Bourbon Peanut Butter Nightcap! This drink will totally blow your love of hot cocoa out of the water. Maybe it’s the bourbon…
If you need more drinks (who doesn’t?!) then I have a roundup of the internet’s best hot drinks too.
Pecan Pie Banana Bread is like when pecan pie and grandma’s banana bread collide! So crazy good.
Need some pancakes? Just for you? Persimmon Pancakes for one are the solution! Cardamom and vanilla highlight that beautiful slice of persimmon cooked right into the pancake.
I made you LOADS of oatmeal cookies! With a joke built into the name. Because I’m funny. Kinda. It’s my “Today Is…” Cookie, and it’s loaded with currants, dates (get it?) and peanut butter chips!
I die for pie! My Maple and Spice Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust is super simple (I’m pie inept, trust me), thick, sweet and so perfect for your holiday table!
Then I made you these Ultimate Peppermint Bark Cookies because I love you. Remember? Good. They’re loaded with peppermint bark AND those gluten-free Peppermint Joe Joe’s you tend to shovel down around this time of year. Oh, and sea salt. You’re welcome.
I hope this helps! I’ve loved making these wintery treats and I can’t stand that Christmastime is already almost over. I can’t wait to share with you all of the thoughts I’ve been having about 2015. No, not resolutions. Those suck. Just you wait.
Need another super simple gift idea? Check this out. High fives for that.
What is your FAVORITE treat to eat this time of year? Which of these would you like to try the most?! May I suggest: the Persimmon Pancakes for breakfast (greedily, while your hubby sleeps…), then snack on the Pecan Pie Banana Bread, then my Today Is Cookie for a dose of fiber around snack time, and then Ultimate Peppermint Bark Cookies for dessert while you’re baking your Maple and Spice Pumpkin Pie. There. Best day ever.
