Loads of Christmas Brunch Recipes

When a bunch of women get together for any kind of party…what do they usually talk about?

Yes, the topics typically range from kids and snot to favorite ways to get stains out of clothes to a good sale someone found on sweaters – and everything in between.

Since you and so many, many women are joining us here at Heavenly Homemakers for our virtual brunch – I figure that if we were sitting around in my living room visiting in real life, after we covered the above topics and shared about what all of our plans are for Christmas, the topic would surely eventually turn toward favorite recipes. Don’t you think?

That is why I’m excited today, as part of our Christmas Brunch, to share with you several more recipe ideas from years past. We can never have enough fun, comforting holiday treat recipes!

Peppermint Patties

Homemade Healthier Eggnog

Whole Wheat Gingerbread Men

Warm Vanilla Soother


Sweet Pepper Fritata

Christmas Spice Cookies


Quick Eggnog Muffins

Vanilla Muffins with Crumb Topping

Have fun clicking through getting new ideas! And please share your recipes in the comments section because I love getting new ideas too. :)

    I am a fan of the vanilla soothers and cinnamon muffins. =0) favorite holiday flavors. Here’s my favorite sugar cookie recipe. It isn’t healthy at all. But a couple of times a year works for me. =0)This has been asked for and shared more times than I can count. (even a manager at a “famous” cookie store. She loved that they baked in 5-7 minutes. =0)


    Cream together in large bowl:
    2 eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup butter, softened
    Then add:
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tsp vanilla

    In separate bowl mix together:
    4 1/2 cups cake flour (sold in baking aisle with other flour types-sold in a box)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda

    Slowly add flour mix to butter mix. Cover and refrigerate over night. Roll out to appprox. 1 in thickness.

    Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 400 for 5-7 min.

    Allow to cool and frost with your favorite frosting. Amount this recipe makes is anywhere from 3 dozen to 5 dozen depending on your cookie cutters.

    I came here looking for a ‘healthier’ alternative to the Christmas cookies I’m used to making in the past and got just what I was looking for! I think I will try the Christmas Spice cookies tomorrow. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

    The vanilla soother looks so great! I can’t wait to enjoy these recipes as we have a Christmas brunch each year with our family! :)

    Laura, whenever I get together with a bunch of women I always talk about recipes. :) I am addicted to trying new recipes even though I have lots of tried and true ones. We’ve loved your vanilla soothers (which was perfect while I was pregnant last winter) and the vanilla muffins.

    I made these gingerbread men with my kids the other day. They’re so good! Mine are rather strong-tasting, though, because unsulphered blackstrap molasses was all I had on hand.


  8. Ronnie Condron says

    The warm vanilla soother is my favorite! We also did the pumpkin one several times and it too is soooo yummy!


  9. Shari says

    You are one creative gal! What wonderful recipes and ideas you share! I wish you had been doing this when my children were young. We cooked and did things together, but nothing like what you come up with. God bless you for sharing with us.

    We were just talking about snacks to make for tomorrow–this couldn’t have come at a better time! We’re doing muffins for breakfast, and I was going to make the pancake sausage muffins (always a hit with my daughter) and the pumpkin choco chip ones (always a hit with my honey and mother-in-law). I can’t wait to try the vanilla muffins with crumb topping. Thank you, and Merry Christmas :).


  11. Lisa says

    Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful family! My family cannot wait to make your whole wheat tortillas!


  12. Melody says

    Thank you for all the yummy recipes. We made your cream cheese cutouts with cream cheese frosting, gingerbread men and peppernuts this year and everything turned out so good!
