Gingerbread Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

Gingerbread Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

We put Dustin’s boozy eggnog to good use on Christmas morning by making gingerbread eggnog cinnamon rolls! Yes, there is eggnog in both the dough and the frosting, and the filling of the cinnamon rolls has molasses and ground ginger in addition to butter, brown sugar, and lots of cinnamon! They ended up not being…

{Shortcut} Butterscotch Monkey Bread Muffins

{Shortcut} Butterscotch Monkey Bread Muffins

I’ve been planning on making monkey bread for Christmas morning a long time now. I had found recipes and an elaborate plan to make a full on monkey bread with yeasted brioche dough and homemade caramel completely from scratch. But as Christmas got nearer and I realized how much other stuff I had to do,…

Eggnog Cheesecake with Gingerbread Crust

Eggnog Cheesecake with Gingerbread Crust

Merry Christmas 2012! Currently sitting in our fridge waiting to be eaten later tonight for Christmas dessert is this eggnog cheesecake with a gingerbread crust, topped with crushed peppermints. All three popular Christmas flavors rolled into one (hopefully) delicious and rich cheesecake. I hope it tastes as good as it looks (UPDATE: it did!). I…

Brown Buttered Eggnog Bread

Brown Buttered Eggnog Bread

Nothing says Christmas like eggnog. We’ve made our own, and now we are baking with this popular holiday drink. This Christmas morning you can drink your eggnog for breakfast as well as eat it. The bread definitely has an eggnog flavoring to it, but it’s not overwhelming or overpowering, and the texture of the bread…

Gingerbread Men {and Friends}

Gingerbread Men {and Friends}

It’s almost Christmas, which means it’s gingerbread man (and woman) time! I had so many problems last year making gingerbread cookies for the first time that I didn’t write all of the details or the recipe. This year’s gingerbread cookies turned out to be extra fabulous. This recipe is slightly adapted from my Pastry Queen…

White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

Think white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and replace the macadamia nuts with peppermint. Sound good? Well, that’s exactly what these taste like! Of course, when I heard M&M was releasing White Chocolate Peppermint M&Ms exclusively through Target, I knew we’d have to make a trip to buy some. We hit the Christmas candy aisle pretty…

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I love the holiday season in general. I told Dustin the best part of marrying him is that I get to celebrate Christmas AND Hanukkah! In celebration of Hanukkah, I busted out my menorah and dreidel cookie cutters from Crate and Barrel to create some special cut out cookies for The Festival of Lights! These…

Chocolate Peppermint Whoopie Pies

Chocolate Peppermint Whoopie Pies

I present to you the next installment of my holiday baking adventure… chocolate peppermint whoopie pies! My second attempt at making whoopie pies was much better than my first, that’s for sure. I’m not sure where I went wrong last time because my batters looked quite similar (perhaps this time my usage of butter and…

Holiday Cake Mix Cookies

Holiday Cake Mix Cookies

In the fall and winter, I eat oatmeal almost everyday for lunch when I am by myself. It’s healthy, quick to make, and warms me up on chilly days. I can also customize it in dozens of ways, so it’s never quite the same, and I get to add a little bit of sugar or…

Gingerbread Waffles

Gingerbread Waffles

I am planning on eating as much gingerbread as humanly possible this December— for breakfast, lunch, and dessert. Dustin would probably kill me if I served him something gingerbread for dinner! I love the flavor of gingerbread in waffles and pancakes, and have very fond memories of some delicious gingerbread pancakes from Kerbey Lane in…
