Best Christmas Baking Recipes. A collection of 25 of our most popular recipes for the Holiday baking season. Everything from no-bake cookies to a traditional Christmas pudding!
With Rock Recipe’s 15th Holiday baking season underway, we take a look back on some of our most popular recipes for Holiday baking over the years.
November and December have always been our busiest months on Rock Recipes, ever since we started back in 2007. Since that time, our holiday recipes grow more in popularity every year.
For many of our hundreds of thousands of followers, this is their first stop for great holiday baking ideas. That’s probably because we have great old fashioned recipes like traditional fruitcake recipes.
But, I also like to think they come for new ideas too, like our most recent White Chocolate Nanaimo Bars. It’s always good to add some new ideas to your Christmas baking plan, just to keep it interesting.
Without further ado, here are 25 of the most popular Christmas related recipes from the past 12+ years on this website. Happy baking!
ON TO THE BEST CHRISTMAS BAKING RECIPES
Best Christmas Baking Recipes
Cherry Pecan Cake - A Moist delicious cream cheese pound cake with maraschino cherries and crunchy pecans baked right in.
Moose Farts - A super easy to prepare, no-bake cookie treat that kids will love and maybe giggle a little at the name too.
Marshmallow Cookie Bars. Easy to make in any flavour you like. The shortbread cookie bottom gets topped by a homemade marshmallow layer made from your favourite flavour of Jello!
This moist, spice-less fruitcake is one of our family favorites. It is not nearly as heavily flavored as dark fruitcake. Since no spices or molasses are used this cake relies purely on the flavor of the dried fruits.
Cherry Vanilla Cheesecake Bars – a very festive and easy cheesecake cookie bar recipe. One of our most popular cookie bar recipes ever.
Christmas Pudding. This simplified recipe is baked, not steamed but still has all the great molasses spice flavour of a traditional pudding.
Dark Fruitcake Cookies - the flavour of a traditional molasses and spice dark fruitcake, translated into a crispy, chewy cookie. Even fruitcake haters loved these!
Marshmallow Roll Cookies - easy, no-bake & freezer friendly! These cookie confections will be popular with all ages, especially around the Christmas season.
A classic Newfoundland recipe that everyone's Mom or Nan made back in the day. It's often enjoyed at the Holidays and is a favourite for morning toast with gobs of melting butter.
Based upon a Newfoundland favorite Christmas cake and ideal for the holiday freezer, these easy cookie squares are quick to prepare, freeze exceptionally well and are always a hit with kids of all ages.
The Best Pecan Pie Bars - this easy recipe includes a simple shortbread bottom and a one bowl mix and pour topping.
Gumdrop Cake. A dense buttery pound cake packed with brilliantly coloured morsels of gumdrop candy. It's very popular during the Holidays or as a birthday cake here in Newfoundland
Newfoundland Snowballs - the most searched for Newfoundland recipe on RockRecipes.com. Soft chocolate fudge balls with the goodness of oatmeal and coconut. These freeze exceptionally well and my kids actually prefer to eat them frozen, just like I did as a child.
Queen Anne Squares have been one of the most popular cookie bars ever on Rock Recipes. These popular Newfoundland treats are a scrumptious combination of coconut and chocolate.
Apricot Raisin Cake is one of the most popular seasonal cake recipes here in Newfoundland during the Holidays, but it is easy enough to be enjoyed any time of year.
Cherry Cheesecake Brownies - an outstanding soft chewy brownie with a cheesecake centre that gets sweet glacé cherries baked into it. Another great freezer friendly cookie bar recipe.
Newfoundland Cherry Cake is a big local favourite especially during the Holidays. The secret in this recipe is undiluted evaporated milk for added richness.
Lassy Mogs - a Newfoundland favourite; well spiced, soft cookies with a deep molasses flavour and filled with dried fruit and crunchy pecans. Irresistible!
The Best Classic Canadian Butter Tarts - there's a reason why we have a national obsession with these sweet, buttery, caramel-y tarts. I've sampled them in many places across the country and this thick pastry version is my favorite. Don't do the raisin debate, just leave them out if they are not your thing. Everyone should be able to enjoy them as they like them.
Perfect Sticky Toffee Pudding - The best version of the classic British dessert that I've ever tried.
Old English Fruitcake - A dark, rich, well spiced old fashioned English style fruitcake that can be made weeks in advance of Christmas.

hello. I am looking for your christmas cookie collection(not xmas baking, just cookies). Thank you so much and I really enjoy your daily email with recipes. I am not from Newfoundland, from Ontario, and my family are Mennonites on my Mom’s side. I [thought they were the best bakers, but you give them a run for their money... Thanks, Heather Bird
