Cranberry Lemon Sweet Rolls

Cranberry Lemon Sweet Rolls

Carolyn concocts these lovely sweet and tart rolls, to answer her craving for a sweet sticky festive yeast bread - that's also low-carb.

"They were festive and pretty, not to mention delicious. The tart cranberry filling was a lovely change from the traditional cinnamon sugar and the glaze gave a lovely hint of lemon…"

Traditional Stollen

Traditional Stollen

Adriana baked this classic German sweet bread for the holidays and had this to say: 

"With rounds of marzipan in each slice and a chewy texture, this stollen will be appearing at our house all year long... Kissed by the fruity lips of orange peels and scented throughout with rum, this is my absolute favorite bread."

I'll bet! It sounds simply divine!

Pretty homemade decorated sugar cookies always win out over the store-bought over-priced variety. Adriana shares this classic recipe adapted from Daring Bakers.

Rum Fruit Cake

"I love fruitcake that is moist, rich and jam-packed with mixed dried fruit and nuts full of rum flavour."

Oh yum, so do I! I love picking my own fruit and nut combo and baking these rich festive cakes. Anncoo's sounds fantastically delicious.

"You just can’t go wrong with chocolate, pecans, and caramel. Rich, fudgy chocolate cookies are rolled in pecans then filled with a decadent caramel."

Spectacular Swirl Cookies

Spectacular Swirl Cookies

"These are sweet sugar cookies which are surprisingly easy since they are a slice and bake cookie. Yes, aside from making the dough and rolling it together, this is just as easy as going to Shoprite for some Pilsbury's sugar cookie dough, but it's so much better!"

Plus they really do look spectacular!

Festive Cream Wafers

Festive Cream Wafers

 

I love these adorable little cookies from Sweet Pea's Kitchen!

"Butter, whipping cream and flour come together to create melt-in-your-mouth wafer cookies. It is absolutely impossible to have just one of these bite-sized cookies… I am sure you will agree, these tender, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies sandwiched together with a creamy butter filling and just too cute. But not too cute to devour!"
