What’s your favorite part of the holiday season? Do you love the presents – giving and receiving? Do you enjoy the time spent with family and friends? Do you look forward to those delicious treats that only come around at the holidays? Most likely it’s all the above, that’s my answer too.
My family has a few traditional treats we serve for the holidays but I’ve perfected only one of them: Braided Christmas Wreath with Cream Cheese Glaze. I recently headed to Food Lion (my favorite grocery store ever!) and picked up everything I needed to make this treat.
Growing up I couldn’t wait for this time of year, I knew what it meant. That beautiful wreath of braided bread filled with cinnamon and nuts then covered with succulent icing and finished with maraschino cherries. My mouth is watering just typing that, is yours? If so, you’ll love me for this; I’m going to share my recipe for Braided Christmas Wreath with Cream Cheese Glaze with you! This was my Nana’s recipe – and I follow it to the letter. Feel free to add to it and change it up to fit your preferences.
This is my absolute favorite thing to make during the holidays. The entire family can get involved and it’s actually pretty easy (despite how intimidating it may look.) What’s your favorite holiday baked goody? Hold that thought!
Right now, Food Lion is hosting a Holiday Bake-Off recipe contest on their Facebook page. Share your holiday recipe with them and you’ll be entered into the contest. They’re looking for recipes in any of these categories: appetizer, entrée side dish or dessert.
