What’s Been Happening
We are definitely starting to get ready for the holidays round here. I’m hoping to finish my Christmas decorating this weekend. However I did squeeze in one last autumnal bake last week.
My Apricot Pecan Quick Bread is studded with dried apricots and crunchy pecans, and flavoured with warming ginger, It’s perfect for breakfast, dessert, or with a cup of tea or coffee anytime. Although it was photographed with a fall theme, I make it all year round!
I’m getting ahead by making and freezing dough rolls of these pretty Old Fashioned Cherry Christmas Cookies. This old fashioned slice and bake recipe is so popular with friends and family at Christmas.
One of my all time favourite Christmas treats, my late Auntie Irene’s Coconut Date and Cherry Christmas Squares bring back happy memories every time I make them. They are very easy to assemble and naturally gluten free too.
Thank you all for sharing your wonderful content and for your support of Hearth and Soul!
Getting Ready for the Holidays – Featured Posts
Getting ready for the holidays featured posts include (from top left, clockwise):-
I grew up in city with a very large population of folks who had immigrated to Canada from Germany so Pfefferneusse have long been a favourite of mine! Cindy from Seasonal and Holiday Recipe Exchange is sharing her Grandma’s recipe for these gorgeously spiced traditional cookies in Gram’s Traditional Pfefferneusse.
Penny from Penny’s Vintage Treasures offers some elegant seasonal decorating inspiration in her post sharing her White Orchids, Roses and Poinsettia Christmas Wreath.
Like Mrs Kringle, I have a serious weakness for English toffee, so I found the recipe for these English Toffee Cookies very hard to resist.
Tara from Stilettos and Shiplap has taken some very basic ornaments and made them into something very special indeed. I really like the creative ideas she shared in All the Trimmings – 5 Unique Christmas Tree Ornaments.
On with the party!
