Tarts & Square Recipes for the Holiday Season

‘ Tis the season for entertaining. Friends and family over unexpected or planned. Most of us will have more guests over than we usually do and that means more cooking.  Cooking and baking and planning. I like to make up some yummy treats that I can throw in the freezer and bring out as needed. I also love to do up a Christmas plate and share with neighbours and friends. Cookies, squares and tarts make the perfect treat.

I find the more variety there is the better. Something sweet, something nutty and something fruity mixed in with just plain delicious.
