It’s safe to say that we are now in full holiday mode. So in the spirit of tackling that to-do list and making more time for you, how about some Quick and Easy Sweet Treats for your Holiday Table? For the next couple of days, I plan to chill, eat more cake and pie than I should and get my holiday game plan ready. That plan includes quick and easy sweet treats and a few shortcuts to take them from ho-hum to woo-hoo!
The recipes below will get you out of the kitchen fast so you can enjoy the festivities, or just get you back to your favorite corner of the couch.
These Will Make Your Days Merry & Bright
The addition of bourbon makes these an adult only treat. Omit the alcohol for the under 21 crowd and even they, will love the chocolate drizzle and walnuts on top.
A healthy dollop of chocolate buttercream frosting in between makes for the ultimate sandwich cookie.
Cranberry sauce at our house goes largely unused. However, the fresh cranberries used here adds a bit of tart to this walnut-laced coffee cake. All you need is a hot beverage and you’re good to go!
As much as I love to use seasonal creamers in my coffee and tea I love using them in my desserts even more. The Pumpkin Spice Creamer was a great enhancer for the nutmeg and cinnamon in my Sweet Potato Pie. Peppermint Mocha in a Buttermilk Bundt Cake? Yes, please! I love the hint of mint.
Enjoy the long weekend, you deserve it!
