What exactly signals the onslaught of intense holiday feelings? What is the harbinger for classic winter bliss? Is it the euphoric hanging up of lights or the cathartic cutting of Christmas trees-to-be, or is it just that long-awaited winter break from school?

Answer: None of the above. While all of these are essential ingredients for the perfect seasonal concoction (I think you know where I’m going with this), the true beacon of pure holiday joy stems when that first fresh batch of [insert baked good here] pops out of the oven.

That’s it. Hands down. Discussion over.

And with that, I bring you a list of recipes (of all difficulty levels) with which to taunt your enemies, bribe your friends and family, thank your teachers and professors, and woo yourself a cute “lil boo thang.” Go forth and conquer, TPers. The whisk is mightier than the sword.
