Time for the second part of our FBC Holiday Recipe Roundup. If you missed it, Part One was earlier this week. This time around we are allllll about the sweet treats. Get yourself a glass of eggnog and gather round!
Let's kick it off with pie from Jessie at the Purple House Cafe. Chai Cream Pie to be exact! I can't think of a better spice combo to go in a festive pie...mmmm...
More shortbread - this time from Shareba at In Search of Yummyness. Only this time it's pretty Coconut Shortbread with Easy Glaze to give them a delicate look.
Ginger is a staple ingredient at Chrismtas and Liz from Emma Eats has baked us a cake – Ginger and Spice Cake!
Continuing on with our ginger theme, Christina at Buffy and George brings us Gingerbread Madeleines with a little sprinkling of sugar dust!
Who can resist a dollop of meringue? Not us! So we're glad Maya at Maya's Kitchen shared these Lemon Meringue Butter Cookies with us!
Tara at The Frilly Apron sent us these MacLarens Cheddar Jam Squares and we have to admit we're very intrigued.
No bake is always great during the busy holidays and Eva at The Pastel Bakery sent us her recipe for no-bake Gluten Free Chocolate Gingerbread Cheesecake. Looks decadent!
The Gumdrop Button sent on a great idea for a yummy DIY edible gift. Katina's Peppermint Millionaires Shortbread looks perfectly festive!
Squares and bars are perfect for popping into boxes as edible gifts. Elizabeth from A Sweet Baker shared her delicious Reeses Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bars. Perfect for a gift box!
Another twist on the classic bar comes from Helene at La Cuisine Helene with Toffee Crisp Squares.
Laura from An Italian Canadian Life wanted to share her take on the classic Italian Torrone with us. It looks delicious!
Shortbread again - but this time with chocolate! Anna at Hidden Ponies share her Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Bars.
Need a little pick me up after all your shopping and wrapping and caroling? Marlie at Barefoot and Frolicking has Wished on Star Energy Bars to keep you going.
We've had a lot of fancy twists on shortbread but sometimes you just want the class Scottish Shortbread like Holly at The Inspired Home makes.
How about something a little different now? Alicia at Bakeaholic passed on her Salted Almond Butter & Pretzel Cups for a nice bite sized salty sweet treat.
This pretty Clementine Olive Oil Tea Cake from Hilary at Cocoa Bean the Vegetable looks perfect for an afternoon coffee or tea break.
A new take on the Christmas fruitcake! Leigh-Ann's Fruitcake Whoopie Pies from Sugar n Stuff - with rum buttercream!
If you're looking for something for the gluten free, dairy free paleo crowd look no further than Sandi's Salted Cashew Chewy Bars from Sandi's Allergy Free Recipes.
We can't for get the fair cousin of the brownie with these Candy Cane Blondies from Jesse at Out to Lunch Creations!
The fruitcake may get a lot of teasing but who can resist these cute little White Fruitcakes with Brandy Frosting from Janice at Kitchen Heals Soul?
And last but not least, these perfectly beautiful Quinoa and Almond Flour Cookies with Chai Spiced Almond Butter from Medha at Farm on a Plate. A wonderful note to end Christmas on!
