Have you seen our gift guides? But we’d be remiss not to mention an equally important aspect of holiday prep: the meal.

The Dessert: Spiced Linzer Cookies with Fig & Plum Preserves
Does anything say “holiday season” like a spiced cookie? These gorgeous Austrian-inspired sweets, spiced for kick and sweetened with fig and plum (the ultimate in holiday preserves) will transport all of your dinner guests to a charming chalet.
The Cocktail: Spiced Mulled Cider
