I use butter substitutes, which don't always work well, but all these recipes came out a peach!
Cardamom Coffee Bread Wreath :: via Sweet Paul
a pillowy bready treat perfect with a hot drink on a cold morning, like a croissant/bread hybrid
Holiday Spiced Pecans :: via A Beautiful Bite
pecan pie without the pie, YUM
Swedish Pepparkakor :: via All Recipes (my mom has our family recipe)
better than gingerbread cookies, perfectly crunchy and satisfyingly spicy, and decorated to the nines
Stollen :: via Bon Appetit
my grandfather used to make a stollen to have every Christmas morning and now I have taken the challenge. this recipe creates a very moist, fruity stollen but my family enjoys it the best
Hope you all had a wonderful start to the year and that 2014 is exactly as you wish!
