Fast, festive and, yes okay, full of fat
Love holiday treats but hate holiday baking? Or maybe you just ran out of time? Here are two quick ideas that you can make with ingredients available at just about any corner store.
Treat number one: Slice chilled store-bought cookie dough and place in mini muffin tins. If you don’t have tins, roll the slices into small balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Make an indent in each with your thumb. Bake as directed. Remove from oven. Take mini peanut butter cups and cut them in half before smooshing the pieces into the middle of the muffin or into the indent in the cookie. Let cool. Serve with vintage Port. Or cold milk. Whichever you have handy.
Treat number two: Take a roll of store-bought chilled croissant dough. Unroll triangles. Place a dollop of Nutella in the middle before rolling up. Bake as directed. Instant pain au chocolat. Serve with champagne.
