Ingredients of Christmas

Posted on

I’ve been stocking up for holiday baking.  Lots of nuts-I put them in cookies, sticky buns, and love to make them spicy, sweet, and candied for entertaining and little gifts.  Crystallized ginger-our grocery store sells these wonderful big cubes in bulk in the organic section. I love ginger in so many things-today I made both ginger squares and gingered nuts (a new party nut recipe and they are fantastic.)  Chocolate chips-to melt and stir together with sweetened condensed milk to make a cookie filling.  And of course, red hots and silver dragees to decorate sugar cookies.


About Sarah

I'm a librarian living with my lovely family in a gorgeous spot of New Jersey, where we raise chickens and love the outdoors. I try to find enough time to indulge all my hobbies-cooking, photography, gardening, sewing, and I write about it all on my book blog & personal blog.
