Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies With Marshmallow Crème Filling ~ December Daring Bakers' Challenge
Whoopie pies are a cross between a cookie and a cake (not a pie!), with two round, mound-shaped halves sandwiching a sweet creamy filling.
The December Daring Bakers' Challenge had us all cheering - the lovely and talented Bourbonnatrix of Bourbonnatrix Bakes was our hostess and challenged us to make fun, delicious and creative whoopie pies! Delicious little cake-like cookies sandwiching luscious filling in any flavors we chose... What else is there to say but "Whoopie!"
Since this is the first time I am making Whoopie Pie I wanted to stick to the Classic Whoopie Pie recipe. For filling I couldn’t find Marshmallow Fluff/ Marshmallow Crème in the market here, so I had to make it at home. Found an easy recipe for the fluff on the net. It was really fun making whoopee pie, marshmallow fluff and the filling all from scratch. This time my super picky eater son loved the whoopie pies and he was the one who ate the most!

Candy Cane Cookies
May this Christmas fill your hearts with warmth, peace and joy! We Wish You and Your Loved Ones A Holy and a Blessed Christmas!
During Christmas season I try to bake at least one new cookie every year. This year I tried the Candy Cane Cookies for my little one's school Christmas party. It was a little more time consuming than I expected but it was fun. Hope all of you are ready with your Christmas menu and if you are looking for ideas please go through my Christmas special menu…

Chicken Biriyani / Kozhi Biryani
Like I said in my Mutton Biriyani post there are plenty of ways to make biriyani and every household has their own unique recipe for the same. This recipe is from my mom which many moons ago was published in Vanitha magazine. Whenever I make chicken biriyani I stick to this recipe as it is easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time and baked just before serving. So if you are planning to make biriyani on Christmas or New Year try this one and let me know :)

Classic Fudge Brownie
As Christmas and New Year’s draw close, everybody must be busy baking cakes and cookies… I too have baked my first batch of Christmas Fruit Cake… To ring in the festive cheer I thought of sharing this decadent Classic Fudge Brownie, a perfect Christmas gift if you don’t want to make fruit cake and cookies… These are quick and easy to put together; yet immensely rich and satisfying; I am sure people will definitely love this little bite of chocolate heaven! Always use the best quality dark chocolate and cocoa powder for making brownies. The original recipe uses pecan nuts, since I didn't have pecans I used a mix of cashew nuts and almonds… You can reduce or completely omit nuts in this recipe if you so desire… do try this heavenly little bits this holiday season and enjoy it as is or serve warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce!

Gingerbread Doughnut Muffins
Holidays are around the corner I am sure everybody is looking for an easy yet different recipe to try out. I found this irresistible breakfast treat at Annie’s Eats and after reading the recipe, I found myself in the kitchen baking these! The spices that go into this muffin, the cinnamon-sugar topping and of course the name all inspired me to try it immediately :)... These are soft and tender and with the right amount of mixed spices, it is a real treat on a lazy holiday morning to share with family and friends over a cup of coffee or hot chocolate... the best thing about this recipe is you can prepare and serve in less than one hour....You can even bake them in a doughnut pan too..... Try these muffins during this festive season....
