Cranberry Pecan Cornbread Bites/Holiday Side Dish Week

I am excited about sharing my Cranberry Pecan Cornbread Bites with you for my second Holiday Side Dish this week!

These moist, fresh cornbread loaves are stuffed full of fresh cranberries and pecan chips, making sure you get a full burst of flavor in every bite! These Cranberry Bites are easy to make, and I found that they are at their best if they are baked as you are preparing dinner. Put all the ingredients together then pop them in the oven and let them bake while your turkey is resting. They taste great with a little swipe of softened butter, or a drizzle of honey! 

I used a special pan for this recipe, but a small or large cupcake pan, will work also, just remember to adjust your baking time. 


Cranberry Pecan Cornbread Bites

( serves 12 pieces)

(printable recipe at end of page)  

1 cup  Raw Pecan Halves, chopped

2 cups White Flour

2 cups Yellow Corn Meal 

1/2 cup Sugar

1 teaspoon Salt

2 tablespoon Baking Powder

2 cups Buttermilk

3 Eggs, beaten

1/2 cup Butter, melted and cooled

2 cups Fresh Cranberries





Chop the pecans into small pieces as shown above. As you can see some pieces are small and some are larger. There is no need for uniform pieces unless that is the look you want!

Mix the white flour, cornmeal and the sugar together in a large bowl. Add the salt and baking powder with a spoon or spatula.

Add the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. 



Mix everything together with a mixer until blended.


Add cranberries and pecans to the batter. Mix everything together with a spatula or spoon.

This is the pan I used. I sprayed each little square. I tried it without the pan spray but the cornbread stuck to the pan. 
So as you  spray the pan, spread the spray with a small brush to make sure the entire cavity of the pan is covered. The bread will release from the pan with no problem. Spoon the batter into the pan. Try to fill the pan so some bites have a lot of cranberries, and some have fewer. That way your family or guests will be able to pick their favorite.

Cook the bites at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Check them with a toothpick, just like you do a cake, for doneness.

Serve these Cranberry Cornbread Bites with a side of butter or honey. Your family and friends will love it! Happy Thanksgiving!

Winter Bread Pudding

  
This post is sponsored by Rhodes Bake 'n Serve Bread
 All opinions and text are my own. #NationalSlowCookerMonth

Today I have one of my favorite recipes to share with you! I am a huge fan of bread puddings, so for my second #slowcookerweek recipe this week, I used Rhodes Bread to make a Winter Bread Pudding. This tasty, easy to make bread pudding is loaded with fresh cranberries, apples, and flavorful spices! This is a dessert that your family and friends will love!

Don't forget about the fun giveaway we have going on this week to celebrate this tasty event! Enter at the end of this page! 


Winter Bread Pudding 
(makes 12 servings)
(printable recipe at end of page)

2-3 loaves of Rhodes Bread
6 ounces Fresh Cranberries
2 Granny Smith Apples
2 cups Heavy Cream
2 Eggs
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
4-5 tablespoons Confectioners Sugar


Prepare the frozen loaves of Rhodes breads by first spraying a pan with cooking spray. I made five loaves at one time, because I wanted extra baked bread, but you will only need approx 2 1/2 loaves for this recipe. Once you spray the pan, spray the underside of a piece of plastic wrap that will cover the pan you used. Sit the pans in a warm area, such as a laundry room. Let the heat help the bread rise to double in size. Then bake the bread at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove plastic before baking.


Let bread cool completely.

 Once the bread is cooled, chop it into small bite sized pieces.

Place bread cubes onto a baking sheet, and toast in oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, then let cool.

Once cooled, place bread cubes, cranberries, and apple pieces into the crock pot.

Mix together the cream, eggs, butter, dark brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon in a separate bowl.


Pour the cream mixture into the crock pot.


Cook in slow cooker for 5-6 hours on low.


Scoop warm bread pudding into serving glasses. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Enjoy!

Cranberry Pecan Biscotti / #CranberryWeek


I hope you found lots of great recipes this week during #CranberryWeek, but I have one more for you that you will love. Cranberry Pecan Biscotti! Easy to make, this dipping cookie is the perfect treat to give as gifts for the holidays! Full of dried cranberries and chopped pecan pieces, this cookie is then dipped in your favorite chocolate for  ultimate flavor enjoyment. Try these cookies. You will be glad you did!


Cranberry Pecan Biscotti
(makes 10-15 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 cups all purpose Flour 
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup unsalted Butter
1 teaspoon grated Lemon Zest
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 large Eggs
3/4 cup chopped Pecans (small pieces)
2/3 cup dried Cranberries
1 bag of mini semi sweet Chocolate Chips 
2-3 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour and baking powder in bowl. Set aside.

 Beat sugar and butter together in large mixing bowl. Add lemon zest and salt into bowl and blend. Add eggs in, one at a time.

 Add flour mix and beat until blended.


Add dried cranberries and chopped pecans to the batter.


Stretch dough onto baking sheet and pat out dough until it becomes a log measuring 13" long and 3" wide.


Bake about 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 20-30 minutes.


Make sure biscotti is cooled. Cut the biscotti into 1/2" wide pieces, using a serrated knife.


Place cut pieces back onto baking sheet, on their sides, as shown. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.


Now turn the pieces over to bake the other side. Cook for only 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool.


Pour the bag of semi sweet chocolate chips into a double boiler and let them melt. I used mini chips for this, but the regular size will work just the same. You could also use milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer. Add 2-3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream into the chocolate and stir until smooth. 


Dip the end of each piece of biscotti into the chocolate.

Set biscotti on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper to set up and dry.

 Enjoy your biscotti! This cookie treat makes a great holiday gift!  Place a few biscotti in a bag tied at the top and then place the bag in a cute mug for a festive look and a gift anyone would love!
