Rodelle Holiday Spice Baking Gift Set Giveaway! (closed)

Rodelle Holiday Spice Baking Gift Set Giveaway!

I look forward to the holiday baking season every year. Even though I bake all year round, there are some holiday flavors – like peppermint mocha and eggnog – that I just love and only get to enjoy around the holidays! Whether you bake every day or only around the holidays, it is important to have your pantry well-stocked for the season and a Holiday Spice Baking Gift Pack from Rodelle is just what you need to get through all the baking you have to do for the rest of the season. The set includes Rodelle’s wonderful Wassail Mix, as well as pure vanilla extracts, cocoa powder and the biggest, most impressive cinnamon sticks you’ve ever seen. The cinnamon can be freshly ground using a microplane to add a potent cinnamon flavor to your baked goods or you can use them to garnish a punch bowl filled with homemade spiced cider or mulled wine, made using the wassail mix.

To enter the contest, just leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite thing to bake during the holidays  is. Do you stick with classic sugar cookies or go all-out with an elaborately decorated yule log? The contest ends Friday at midnight (12/11/2014) and one winner will be randomly selected from the entries. Don’t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be made public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck!

And try these recipes for some holiday baking inspiration!

Update: This giveaway is now closed. A winner will be announced shortly!

    I’m more of a candy maker this time of year, toffee, caramels, fudge and brittles, but I also have to make sugar cookies for Christmas.

    My FAVORITE is cutout sugar cookies! Not only do you get all the fun of making, rolling, and cutting the dough, but there are endless possibilities for decorations – a super fun activity to do with my roomies!

    I make lots of different kinds of cookies and give them to several of my friends and family who don’t bake. But I enjoy making sugar cookies with my daughter the most! We’ve been making them every Christmas since she was old enough to decorate them with colored sugar (she’s now 14).

    It’s been a while since I baked cookies–maybe this year–but I love making pecan pie, and after Thanksgiving, I just have to bring one for Christmas!

    Sugar cookies! And then decorate them as popular people or fictional characters from that year!

    I like to try one or two new recipes each year but the one that always makes the cut is Pecan Tassies

    I do a lot of baking all year round, but at this time of year, one of my favorite things to bake is stollen. I use my bread machine to make the dough, but then I shape it, let it rise, and bake it. It makes a great gift!

    I love to bake during the holiday season. Probably my favorite are the cookies I make for cookie trays for friends and family. I have already started and have ginger snaps, honey cookies, snicker doodles and thumbprints already made and in my freezer… With many more to go!

    I think my personal favorite thing to bake, and my favorite treat to eat, is always going to be a chocolate chip cookie. There’s something about that smell. It’s just not Christmas without it!

    So hard to narrow it down. Gingersnaps have to be one of my favorite. They are good all year round but the holiday season seems to scream ginger and spices. I’d say gingerbread or gingersnap cookies would be one of my favorites.

    my go to cookie recipe is always chocolate chip so when i bake this christmas, i will definitely be making those (although i have been experimenting with some FLOURLESS chocolate chip cookies — made with nut butter — that have been crazy good). and another holiday staple i love to make this time of year, while not “baking” is the ever so popular oreo truffles. 😀 but i use vanilla in so many things. and i’ve never had actual cinnamon sticks before! i’d love to try them out in things, even a stovetop potpourri. those always look so cool! (sorry for the semi-novel hah)
