Gingerbread Nanaimo Bars

Serious Eats cakespy 8 comments

This version of the Nanaimo bar is dressed up for the holidays with a gingerbread base and a "blonde" white chocolate topping. The spicy gingerbread works superbly with the classic Nanaimo bar filling, which is made with Bird's custard powder, an ingredient which can typically be found in the International aisle of grocery stores (with the British imports). These bars are very sweet, very rich, and very perfect for holiday parties or cookie exchanges. If you feel like overdoing it in a very pleasurable way, go ahead and pair them with eggnog. More

Gingerbread Spice Mix

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 2 comments

Gingerbread spices are endlessly customizable. This version balances warm, spicy flavors against cool, citrus-y ones, and has a cool finish of cardamom, anise, and black pepper. Unless you have a very good source for ground ginger, you're best grinding your own from whole dried versions. A microplane makes a quick job of them. More

Holiday Treat: Sweet Potato and Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 12 comments

This is a sweet potato dessert that won't get mistaken for pumpkin. We used almost a pound, lightly caramelizing it in butter first for good measure. We went light on the spices—just enough to enhance the potato's inherent spicy qualities without turning it into pie. But this isn't tame stuff—just ask the bourbon, a sweet potato's best friend. We added it after cooking the custard so its alcohol would remain in the ice cream, contributing to a fantastically creamy texture and a kick strong enough to remind those nosy relatives who's boss.

Gingerbread Baby Cakes: Because Winter Isn't Over

Serious Eats Dorie Greenspan 11 comments

I don't know where you are, but I'm in Connecticut looking out at a bunch of snow. These cakes are great with whipped cream and candied lemon zest and just as good with ice cream—particularly coffee ice cream. A couple of bites could give us northerners the patience we'll need to wait for spring. More
