13 Mini Christmas Desserts to Add to Your Wish List
Don’t be fooled by their tiny size. These one-bite treats, which are dangerously delicious, will be the star of any holiday party.
Italian Christmas Cookies
This year we thought we’d bake something beyond basic sugar cookies. We took inspiration from some of our favorite Italian treats and folded them into 7 new recipes. From tender pine-nut studded Pignoli to striped Neopolitan Butter Cookies, you’ll want to add one (or all) of these to your holiday baking repertoire.
Glazed Ham With Coriander and Fennel
This is a ham glaze recipe you’ll want to keep tucked away for special suppers. The resulting ham slices have a sweet and savory flavor guests can’t quite pinpoint; in other words, this method is wildly different than the countless brown sugar and maple glazes out there. We used dried fennel and coriander seeds, along with whole black peppercorns and apricot preserves. Simply crush the seeds and peppercorns and stir them with the jam to form a spreadable glaze, which you’ll brush over the ham during its final stretch in the oven. Serve the ham with the remaining glaze on the side.
