Diets are Out for Christmas

Christmas Tree

Christmas is all about friends, family, fun and over-indulging. Toss the diet books aside, forget the salad and allow yourself a little (or a lot) of winter comfort in baking form.

There is nothing better than curling up besides the fire with a mug of steaming mulled wine or decadent hot chocolate and an array of cakes, biscuits and chocolates spread out around you.

Here are a few of my favourite winter-time recipes to get your Christmas baking juices flowing:

Spiced Orange, Raisin and Fudge Biscuits

Cranberry and Mulled Wine Mini Loaves

Mulled Wine and Poached Pear Trifle

Eggnog Cupcakes

Cranberry Ginger and White Chocolate Sandwich Biscuits

Orange, Ginger and Brandy Cupcakes

Happy baking and have a wonderful Christmas!
