Here are our seven favourite festive recipes that we’re featuring this year. These are tried-and-true recipes that have been readers’ favourites for years. And we have two new recipes — my new favourites (adaptations of other popular recipes on this site).
Bridget’s new favourites:
I can’t get enough of ginger, especially this time of year. And the scent of gingerbread anything baking makes my home feel like the best place in the world. Out of this came a new version of Ginger Shortbread. My new version has a more buttery texture and loads of gingerbread flavour.
This is an adaptation of my grandmother’s recipe for crinkle cookies. I added extra ginger and a bit more flour to keep them from being too soft. These cookies travel well so a great for gifting.
This is the gingerbread cake I grew up with and remains my favourite. Serve it with whipped cream, or Caramel Sauce (a true butterscotch, really) or both…
Think of your favourite ginger cookie, with a little chocolate added. Even more delicious, and extra pretty, when dipped in melted chocolate. Great for gifting.
This old time sour cream gingerbread cake gets a different look when baked in a loaf pan. Great texture and easy to package up if you want to send it off someplace. A top coat of cream cheese icing makes it extra festive.
Always satisfying and a little healthyish. Easy to make gluten-free. And easy to dress up with a little melted chocolate.
So easy to make for a quick nibble. Good for sharing and a nice treat with drinks before dinner.
