So as not to overwhelm you with food and posts and pictures, I’ll try to break everything up as much as possible. The holiday baking actually began at 10:00 pm on the 23rd. Unwise, but worth it for the detour to Up in the Air it allowed us. Thanks to this late night, we had a lovely, freshly baked Cranberry-Apple Coffee Cake Wreath waiting for us the next morning!
It was very yummy – I don’t think I’d ever had a yeasted coffee cake before and it was very nice – sweet but not too sweet. And also useful because I was able to use the leftover cranberry bits from the cranberry liqueur I made. Nothing goes to waste!
To go with it, I also made scrambled eggs and added chives, goat cheese, and some lemon zest. Super tasty!
