Vegan Rugelach Cookies Filled With Jam (Cornulete de post)
These little delicious croissants are one of the many memories of my childhood. In Romanian, we call them cornuleţe and they are commonly baked around Christmas time. They are incredibly tender and will delicately fall apart in your mouth. This time, I decided to fill them with jam, but you can also use nuts, chocolate spread or Turkish delight. They are so easy to make and delicious that you have no other choice than to give them a try!
Apple Cranberry Pie
Although I absolutely love apple pies, I love the combination of cranberries and apples even more. Cranberries add a surprisingly delightful burst of tartness. The lattice crust will show off the gorgeous ruby color inside the pie, perfect for the Holidays!
Vegan Romanian Cozonac (De Post)
Cozonac is a classic, sweetened yeast bread originating from Romania. The citrus-scented sweet dough is twisted around a nutty filling, creating a spiral design once baked. It is traditionally made with butter, milk and eggs. This time, I’ve decided to create a vegan version which has that same delicious and comforting taste.
Molten Brie Cheese With Cranberries
Forget those expensive cheese platters. By baking your cheese, you will transform good value brie into a spectacular entrée. It will rapidly become the best cheese dip you ever had. If it super quick and easy to prepare, but has that wow factor that will impress all your guests.
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
I can guarantee you that these chocolate crinkles will outshine every other cookie on your Christmas cookie platter. They’re as rich and fudgy as brownies, with a crunch of cookie on the outside.
Orange and Hazelnut Yule Log Cake
Burning a yule log is a Christmas tradition that dates back before Medieval Times. Interestingly, the Yule log was initially an entire tree! Families would bring the trunk of the Yule tree inside their houses and stick the largest end into the fireplace to feed the fire over the 12 Days of Christmas. The Yule Log Cake, also known as a Bûche de Noël in French, originated from this old tradition.

A Whole Range of Feelings
This year’s reality is different. If you are like me and you contrast the life you had in December 2019 and your life now in December 2020, maybe you will find more complicated feelings than simply “joy” and “pleasure”. Or maybe not!

Christmas makes me look forward to snowy, winter nights in Montreal - a true reminder that there’s light in the darkest of times.
