Winter is when I struggle most with identifying what makes a seasonal baked good. It’s not as clear to me as pumpkins in Fall or peaches in the Summer. So what makes good Winter Recipes? I think maybe winter baking is just about food that is flavorful with ingredients you can still find on-hand. Oh, and they should be comforting and cozy. And Winter is definitely the time for decadence! With this in mind, here are the 30+ Best Winter Baking Recipes from Live to Sweet!
This post of The Best Winter Baking Recipes has been broken down into these categories:
- Cakes & Cupcakes
- Pies & Tarts
- Cookies & Brownies
- Bread & Muffins
- Everything Else!
Of course, I'm a big fan of making whatever you want, whenever you want. That said, these recipes have flavors that are warm, cozy, and indulgent. Make them anytime, but especially in Winter!
