Holiday Baking Recipes for Some Delicious Sweet Treats

Are you searching for some simple yet delicious holiday baking recipes?

The Christmas season is one of the happiest times of the year, with Christmas shopping, decorating, Christmas music, and holiday baking.

Many families enjoy baking assorted cookies, candies, and desserts for the holiday season to nibble on and to give away to others. Some even do quite a bit of baking and give away cookie tins as gifts.

Perhaps you have family recipes that you love to make at Christmas time and everyone looks forward to them. I know for me, there's nothing like Grandma's Jewish Filled Rolls on Christmas morning! I suggest you sit down and make a list of all the different holiday cookies and desserts you'd like to make. Every year, you can also add a new recipe as well, or create your own holiday baking recipe.

It is a great idea to make holiday baking a family tradition. Get your siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, and any other family members involved. Put on some Christmas music and really make this year's baking day a special memory.

If you've never been involved in a cookie exchange, this year is the perfect time to join one or have your own. A cookie exchange is when family and friends simply exchange cookies at a cookie exchange party. This way, you will have a large selection of holiday treats to choose from. Here are some wonderful and tasty holiday baking recipes for you to choose from this year; I tried them and I love them.



  • Pre-made piecrust
  • 1 jar apricot jelly
  • 1 bag chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner sugar

    Directions for this holiday baking recipe:

  • Lay the piecrust out flat on a clean surface.
  • Spread one tablespoon of apricot jelly evenly across crust.
  • Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips on top of the apricot.
  • Roll up the piecrust into a roll.
  • Use a baking brush to brush a thin layer of melted butter on the top of the roll.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the top of the roll is golden brown.
