Every December, we fall into the most deliciously wonderful baking rut every year!
It starts with Thanksgiving when I bake up a batch of mini pecan tarts, a project I always baked with my mom and is now a tradition in my tiny family.
Come December, Paul and I pull out the cookie press for spritz cookies. We somehow manage to finish off a batch by ourselves.
New this year, and only new because I’ve done it twice now are yule logs right before Christmas. What’s different from last year is the recipe. Instead of a chocolate cake roll, I opted for a caramel-espresso yule log with yellow cake from Cook’s Illustrated. So delicious, this is the version I’m hoping to make year after year!
Do you have any holiday baking traditions you like to make every year? Let me know!
