It’s Christmas! For this week’s Clippings, we look back at our holiday baking adventures.

If traditional is your modus operandi, you can’t go wrong with the Christmas pudding that’s been passed down in Sugar’s family or Cream’s classic whipped shortbread.

Unconventional? Coconut barfi/burfi have nothing to do with Christmas, but that doesn’t stop them from looking like perfect little snowballs. And you might score points with the in-laws when you present them with some lemon-sage shortbread.

Is Hanukkah more your thing? Rugelach are a pain to make, but are so so worth it.

If you’d like to cut some corners given that Christmas Eve is only two sleeps away, buy some puff pastry and go to town with these palmiers.
