Want to add a bit of sparkle to your holiday baking lineup this year? Or, maybe you just want to change it up. While traditional Christmas cookies and other favorites will always have their place, this season is the perfect time to spice things up in the kitchen!
We asked some of our favorite bloggers to create holiday recipes using Baker’s Secret® bakeware. They whipped up 12 winners, some sweet and some savory, that you and your guests will love! From a fun twist on potpie to “hot chocolate on a stick,” these tasty recipes are easy, festive ways to make this holiday season a little merrier.
Lattice Chicken and Sweet Potato Potpie
Sweet potato and spices make this savory pie a delish for a holiday dinner…or the perfect easy weekday meal during those busy days leading up to the holidays. Blogger Erin V. from The Spiffy Cookie shares a lattice crust tip that’s both easy and foolproof.
