BAKING ‘Tis the season for baking cookies, cakes and
SHORTCUTS other treats. Holiday baking doesn’t have to add
to seasonal stress. With these tips and shortcuts,
there will be plenty of sweet treats for the family.

STICK WITH TESTED RECIPES
Although holiday bakers may want to branch out a
bit with their culinary creativity, recipes that have
previously been prepared with great success can take
some of the work out of holiday baking. Preparing
recipes you recall preparing in the past is much easier
than trying something new. If you’d like, add sparkle to
old standards, such as decorating oatmeal or chocolate
chip cookies with colored sprinkles.

COOKIES ARE FAST-BAKING
Did you know that cookies were originally made to
test oven temperatures? Culinary historians say that
cookies were rst made to test if an oven was hot
enough to bake other goods. Today, cookies can be
whipped up in mere minutes. Make a batch of dough
and then freeze or refrigerate it, thawing it when the
time comes to bake. Also, think about baking one day
and decorating the next if pressed for time.

EMBRACE COLORED CANDY MELTS
Icing can be tricky to master. Simply heating colored
candy melts and pouring over cakes or painting onto
cookies can add festive appeal to desserts. Candy
melts even come in many di erent colors and can be
combined to achieve the tint desired.
