Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies

If you’ve been here for a bit, you know that I love a crinkle cookie. These Berry Crinkle Cookies were a smash success last Valentine’s Day and I decided that for the holidays we needed a new crinkle cookie, so here we are: Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies.

These are heavy on the spices and molasses. They’re a bit chewy but mostly soft and delicious. They taste like heaven on a plate. A true holiday cookie.

Holiday Dessert Table with Crate and Barrel

The holidays are upon us and we are all ready basking in the holiday vibes that we love so much. Today I’m super excited to share this Black Walnut Cake recipe with you AND this holiday dessert table with Crate and Barrel! This cake is buttery and nutty and super fluffy. The gingerbread cookies that go around on the outside are added for a bit of cuteness. And this holiday dessert table makes me all excited for this time of year.

I teamed up with Crate and Barrel to show off this fun holiday dessert table—my go-to for holiday décor! This table is the perfect thing to assemble for any holiday or seasonally festive parties you might be throwing.

My Holiday Dessert Table:

I wanted the table to be both super pretty but approachable. Most of these things I made a week or so before, froze them and then baked them up the day of. This made for a super easy, breezy experience. Here’s what I figured I’d set out for guests:

Cranberry Orange Rolls

Cranberry Orange Rolls

The holiday season is officially in full effect. If I’m being completely honest, the truth is that I’ve had holiday decorations out since the third week in November lol. I had some serious preparation for this holiday season! And I’m super pumped to be kicking off the season with these Cranberry Orange Rolls because they are divine!

For this post, I teamed up with Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast. Using their RapidRise® Yeast for this recipe was a total ace!

Cranberry Orange Rolls

What is Rapid Rise Yeast?

Most yeast requires you to get it started in water. Most of my cinnamon roll recipes have you dissolve it into lukewarm water or milk and wait until it activates. Sometimes this can be finicky. It can take anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes for it to activate and get all nice and foamy. But Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast is actually mixed within the dry ingredients—no activation required! This means no waiting around for it to be activated. You can mix and proceed with the recipe!

It saves a total of 5 minutes from this recipe. It makes these morning rolls super fool-proof. No need to worry if you activated the yeast correctly!
