Stollen with Hazelnut Marzipan

Stollen is a yeasted German bread with nuts, dried fruits, spices, marzipan, and powdered sugar typically eaten around Christmas. In this version, we replace the raisins with dried apples and cranberries and fill the center with hazelnut marzipan. This bread has all of the best holiday flavors and goes so well with a cup of hot coffee!

Cranberry Orange Scones with Candied Ginger

These cranberry orange scones are super buttery, flaky, and the best combo of sweet and tart. The secret ingredient is a bit of candied ginger which adds a lovely spiced note to the pastries. I love serving these scones with tea or coffee for a light weekend breakfast or afternoon snack.
