Seasonal Sweets


With Christmas just a week away, I've squeezed in more baking these past few days than pretty much the entire year combined. Despite my chaotic schedule, I somehow have more patience for decorating sugar cookies, assembling gingerbread houses and blanching orange peels until they're ready to be dipped in chocolate. In case you're looking for some last-minute seasonal sweets, I've rounded up eight of my all-time favorites.

Molasses Spice Cookies

Festive Cake Pops

English Toffee

Speculoos Button Cookies

Gingerbread Snowflakes

Chocolate-Covered Orange Peels

White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Cups
