Man, if there’s anything to celebrate in 2020, it’s that it’s over. And what better way to celebrate than with a good cocktail?

We wanted to take a deep dive and individually test each ingredient in a classic Old Fashioned to really come up with that cocktail bar-worthy beverage. Good news: We think we’ve done it.

What is an Old Fashioned?

In simple terms, an Old Fashioned is a cocktail made of bourbon, sugar, bitters, orange, and a cherry.

I don’t know what it is about this year, but I am so far behind with holiday shopping right now. I was really ahead, but then I kind of just gave up. And if I’m being honest, just the thought of entering a mall right now gives me anxiety, so I’m thinking it’s going to be the year of the gift cards for quite a few people on my list.

One thing I’m not behind with is holiday baking. In fact, today I’m planning on making peanut butter blossoms and mint chocolate cookies with my girl today.

We may even whip up a couple of batches of snowflake sugar cookies because they are current favorite cookie recipe at the moment.

After sharing my one hour orange cinnamon rolls, I don’t think I need to ramble on about how much we love the orange cinnamon combo for breakfast in this house. And I warned you that I had one more easy orange cinnamon recipe coming up. Easier than the orange rolls, I swear!

This is such a nostalgic flavor for me, and when it comes to baked goods on christmas morning, this is exactly how I want them taste.

orange cinnamon coffee cake muffins

So if cinnamon rolls are a little out of your wheelhouse, grab a muffin pan and make this recipe! You can bake them the night before and christmas morning will taste heavenly.

These last a few days (unless everyone eats them!) and they’re a great way to prepare a fun, seasonal breakfast or snack ahead of time, without trying to do so in the rush of the holiday mornings. I love doing this. Get’s everything out of the way.

orange cinnamon coffee cake muffins with orange glaze

A few years ago, I offered a holiday entertaining guide with The Pretty Dish. If you have it, you may recognize these muffins as my Christmas Morning Muffins! This is pretty much that recipe, with added streusel and glaze, because who doesn’t love coffee cake?

While the muffin itself doesn’t have a cinnamon swirl, it does have this fabulous coffee cake-like topping that lends itself to the perfect morning treat. Grab a large (iced for me!) latte with lots of foam. Turn on the glow of the christmas lights. Enjoy a slow and steady morning as the year winds down.

Sounds amazing.

It feels like we might be inside a hallmark movie at this point and I don’t hate it.

These muffins are light and fluffy with hints of both cinnamon and orange. The streusel is crumbly and almost crunchy – it’s perfect! 

The glaze is perfectly sweet and super orange-flavored, mostly from fresh grated zest that gives it a wonderful citrus zing.

Ingredients

muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest

streusel

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

orange glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

Instructions

muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with liners.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda.
  • In a larger bowl, whisk together the sugar and the eggs until combined. Whisk in the milk and vegetable oil. Whisk in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined. Fill the muffin liners about ⅔ of the way full. Sprinkle the crumb on top of the batter, pressing gently so it sticks to the batter.
  • Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the center is set and the crumb is golden. Remove the muffins and drizzle with the orange glaze. Serve!

streusel

  • To make the crumb topping, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter until combined. Whisk for a good minute or two until the sugar begins to dissolve, then use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour. The mixture will be crumb-like and dry. Almost like a sludge or sand. This is what you want! Sprinkle the crumb on top of each muffin before baking.

orange glaze

  • Whisk ingredients together until a smooth glaze forms. If it’s too thick, add more orange juice 1 teaspoon at a time. If it’s too thin, whisk in more sugar a few tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached.

I know it’s December, but we’re still into no bake desserts, right? I mean, is there ever really a time not to be into them?

I shared this recipe for No-Bake Cranberry Cheesecakes years ago and decided that the post needed a little upgrade in the photo department.

Orange Cranberry Crisp (Gluten-Free & Easy!)

Admittedly, I’m not the hugest fan of traditional cranberry sauce. Perhaps that’s because it was mainly in jello form at most of my childhood holiday meals. However, cranberries, when done right, are incredibly delicious. This cranberry crisp proves that.

Baked to perfection, it’s a bubbly, saucy, tart-sweet, crisp dream. Dare I say it’s my new favorite crisp?! Plus, just 45 minutes and 10 ingredients required! Let us show you how it’s done. 

To start, tart cranberries are tossed with orange zest and juice and naturally sweetened with maple syrup.

Sweet and spicy, festive and fruity, this cranberry pepper jelly makes for a perfect holiday appetizer.

Today I’m sharing a holiday twist on my favorite pepper jelly recipe, adding fresh cranberries for a unique flavor and gorgeous ruby red color. Despite the mix of peppers and cranberries, it’s still a pepper jelly first and foremost, rather than a spicy cranberry sauce (let’s just clear that up from the getgo).

Three glass jars of Cranberry Pepper Jelly on a light pink background, with fresh cranberries and mixed red peppers scattered around.

Look, I know I just posted a pepper jelly recipe all of 2 minutes ago (actually, it was 2 months ago, but we all know that in this alternate universe we’re living in time has no meaning anymore so…)

The thing is, the peppers just keep on coming. It’s mid-November and we’re still getting piles of both hot and sweet peppers with our bi-weekly CSA deliveries from Caney Fork Farm. Circumstances have made me extra-conscious about food waste, and that, paired with the fact that I just really don’t like peppers very much (so sue me), have led to batch after batch of pepper jelly (which at least has the benefit of being shelf-stable and more easily giftable than the fresh peppers themselves). I’ve made so much I’m actually running out of jars (oh, the horror!)

Three glass jars of Cranberry Pepper Jelly on a light pink background, one har with two spoons.

This holiday-variation pairs tart cranberries with sweet and spicy red peppers and just a hint of orange zest. I used mainly sweet red peppers, with two red Cayenne peppers thrown in for just a hint of heat (but you can easily customize this recipe to be as spicy as you’d like, as long as the final prepared quantity of peppers is the same, it doesn’t matter what proportion of that is hot versus sweet).
