White Chocolate Dipped Chewy Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread cookies are a holiday staple as far as I am concerned. I sweetened things up a bit by dipping the cookies in melted white almond bark and garnishing with holiday sprinkles.

If you have never tried almond bark, it is sold in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. It melts really well, easier than regular chocolate I have found. If taste is your ultimate priority, compared to the convenience of easy melting, you could stick with regular white chocolate instead.

Williams Sonoma Dresden Stollen with Cranberries

My gosh you guys, if you like giving out baked goods during the holiday season, you need to add these to your list of things to make. Dried fruits are soaked overnight in Brandy to give a wonderful flavor.

Now if you are familiar with the Williams Sonoma catalog you may be thinking why not just buy a Stollen from them directly. Well for one, they are expensive! $35-$55 per loaf is pretty pricey. Secondly, homemade is fresher and you get three loaves instead of one.

Initially I was afraid the bread might come out dry, but it has such a great texture and best of all it has so much flavor. I had a lot of doubts about how this would turn out and I was taken aback at how delicious and perfect it turned out. Enjoy!

Eggnog Layered Pie

Kay folks, today I have a really simple and pretty pie, Eggnog Layered Pie that I found from On Cupcake Moon. It is very easy to make, but do note that it does need a few hours to chill in the fridge so plan ahead. Enjoy!

Snowball Cookies

These delightful cookies are a staple for many families cookie platters. They are pretty little cookies rolled in powdered sugar. Basic, but delicious.

I prefer these cookies with no nuts. They are probably my favorite holiday cookie. Even though they only have a few ingredients, the texture and taste is outstanding.
