Hosting Made Simple

If you’re anything like us, you’ve made a list (and checked it twice!) and discovered that there’s a whole lot to do during the holidays. From planning appetizers for cocktail get-togethers to baking cookies for Santa, your days are likely filled with plenty of cooking, baking and hosting. That’s why it’s always a good idea to keep a shortcut or two in your back pocket—simple recipes that come together quickly, giving you more time for what’s really important. That’s where these dishes come in. They sacrifice nothing in terms of flavor or presentation, but help you accomplish more in less time. You’ll find impressive mains, crowd-pleasing cocktails and even some easy cookie recipes. Whatever you decide to make, be sure to save a spot on your menu for these miniature cherry pies. They come together in an hour with premade pie crust and canned cherry pie filling but look like fancy, bakery-made confections thanks to the help of a miniature Christmas tree cookie cutter.
