Welcome to Day 3 of
The Twelve Days of Holiday Treats!
Once again, this year, from December 1st-12th I’ll post a new holiday treat recipe every day – inspiration for your holiday entertaining!
The recipes I’m sharing are small-er batch (as many of us will still be attending/ hosting smaller gatherings) – each recipe makes 1-dozen or a few more smaller-sized treats that are simple to prepare and that use everyday ingredients and equipment so hopefully you’ll be able to whip up any of these on a whim. Check out the treats from 2019, 2020 and 2021 at the bottom of this post too for more inspiration!
Today we have a classic French treat, holiday-ed up with some gingerbread spices. Last year, I shared Madeleines à la Clémentine – adding new holiday flavours to the roster this year! Gingerbread madeleines are an easy treat to bake up, though the batter needs a rest in the fridge overnight so make sure to plan ahead.
Madeleines are best the day you make them, but they can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
