One of the hallmarks of the Christmas season for me growing up was my mom’s baking. Butter tarts, shortbreads, chocolate truffles, molasses toffee, and orange-cranberry bread were made nearly every year, and only at Christmastime. Sometimes the plate was enhanced with gourmet chocolates. In fact, I associate that plate of treats with Christmas just as strongly as I do fires in the fireplace, the smell of fir trees, and the sounds of carols. So, as an adult with my own kids now, I continue this holiday tradition, albeit now with Paleo-friendly and much lower sugar content treats.
If you share the Christmas baking nostalgia, I’ve rounded up some delicious recipes for you. Do some baking and make a plate of treats for your friends, family, and neighbors. I bet they won’t even know these recipes are Paleo (and many of them AIP)!
