The 20 greatest simple Christmas baking recipes | Christmas foods and drinks

Easy. Christmas. Baking. Three of my favorite phrases. Three of my favorite issues. Twenty excellent recipes. Nigel and Nigella! Maple walnut biscuits from Jeremy Lee. A breakfast loaf from Honey & Co, marmalade popovers from Margaret Costa. Creation treats: flammkuchen from Anja Dunk and Yotam’s Swiss chocolate cookies. There are savouries: cheese and quince shortbread from Olia Hercules, sage and onion twists from Benjamina Ebuehi, stilton scones from Claire Thomson. There’s candy: chocolate plum pudding and sweet cane cookies. Actually, merely scrumptious. Merry Christmas from OFM.
