Did Someone Say Pie???

Yippie Pie Yay—the Holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means… dessert! Would it really be the holidays without a homemade apple pie, a rich pudding, or an array of mouthwatering cookies?

Let’s be honest; we can’t discuss holiday desserts without mentioning the classic pumpkin pie. Filled with spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, this pie encompasses all the warmth of the holiday season! You grab your favorite pie plate and start mixing. The spices blend perfectly and fill your home with an inviting aroma you wish would always linger. When finished baking, clean yourself up with ease using an exfoliating Loofa Soap. And luckily for you, it comes in Spice scent, so you can always keep that freshly baked pie smell!

fruity soaps and thumbprint cookiesWe Give These, Two Thumbs Up

One of our favorite holiday traditions is making (and eating) thumbprint cookies. For those unfamiliar with these scrumptious little treasures, a thumbprint cookie is a buttery shortbread cookie with a sweet-filled center, like jam. What makes them unique is you press your thumb to create the indentation for the filling. And the fun part is that you can mix and match jam flavors for a quick, easy assorted cookie spread! If these cookies pique your interest, we think you’ll love our gift soap variety with fruity scents, such as juicy Apricot and tart Bergamot. Be sure to check out our gift assortments and make your house as diverse as your thumbprint cookies!

Good Tidings We Bring

Have you ever been singing Christmas carols and wondered, what in the world is figgy pudding anyway? Figgy Pudding is a sweet and savory cake that dates back to 14th-century Britain. Raisins, prunes, wine, and spices were combined with beef and mutton as a fasting meal in preparation for the Christmas season. Luckily this holiday tradition has evolved to be more of a fruit bread than a meatloaf. The figgy pudding you will find today is now made with dried fruit, breadcrumbs, mixed spices, and typically alcohol. If this traditional cake is on your Christmas wish list, you will surely enjoy the products in our iconic fig collection.

Baking pies and desserts is an activity that lets families embrace the true spirit of the holidays – warmth, laughter, and quality time with each other. No matter how you spend your holidays, we can always count on desserts to bring us together.
