Home-baked Breads and Biscuits - The buttermilk or yogurt in this recipe makes for light biscuits. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together the dry ingredients to thoroughly mix them. Cut in the butter and shortening mix. Add the buttermilk or yogurt, and blend until the dough is soft and malleable. If using a food processor, the mass of dough will come together in a ball. Brush a baking sheet lightly with some of the melted butter. Cut out the biscuits and lay them on the baking machine for 20 minutes.
Christmas Cakes - Christmas cakes are the classic crafts and recipes of Christmas. To prepare Christmas Santa cakes frost the cupcake with a layer of white icing. Add the red frosting hat, curving it around the side of Santa's face, and a marshmallow pom-pom. Sprinkle on a ring of coconut to make Santa's beard and hair. Draw on his eyes and cheeks with gel icing, then top it all off with a red candy nose. Towering tree cake, muffin cup cakes and snowman cup cakes are other Christmas cake items.
Christmas Desserts - Take cream shortening, sugar, milk and eggs. Sift flour and baking powder together in separate bowl. Beat in dry ingredients to wet ingredients until smooth. Stir in cherries. Ice-cream tree, apple crumble, chocolate cream pie and coffee cake are other scrumptious holiday desserts.
