I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am that it’s finally December! I love Christmas, and everything to do with it. Buying gifts, the music, and… the food. The amount of cookies and desserts I usually bake around Christmas time is absolutely insane, so I decided to start with something different – and easy! These sugar dusted cranberries are 1) delicious and 2) pretty to look at. I could not resist grabbing these sparkly plastic wine glasses from my supermarket for $5 each, and I love how the cranberries look in them. It really gives off a Christmas vibe, which of course is exactly what I wanted!
Unfortunately in Australia, cranberries aren’t in season during Christmas time, but I was fortunate enough to find some frozen cranberries in my freezer! My suggestion is to a) stock up when they’re in season and freeze them or b) grab ones that are already in the freezer section of your supermarket – they still taste amazing!
Making sugar dusted cranberries is really simple, and there’s only 3 ingredients – one of them being water! There’s really no excuse not to make these once you’ve seen the recipe – and once you do, you’ll want to make them over and over again!
I hope you enjoyed the first of my recipes for Christmas 2016, and I can’t wait to share the others with you! I have so much fun with every aspect of creating recipes for you: going to the grocery store to buy the ingredients, preparing, doing the actual cooking, taking pics, typing them up… It really is an awesome way to spend my time, and it makes me happy knowing you guys enjoy them – it’s the most perfect Christmas gift for me!
What’s the first Christmas recipe you’re making?
I would love love love to see pictures of your Christmas cooking creations!
