Christmas Morning Pull Apart Bread and Cranberry Orange Mimosa

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

In this episode, I will tell you a little bit about a childhood Christmas tradition that I would do with my mom and siblings which was making a delicious cinnamon and sugar pull-apart bread. I'll also throw in a personal Christmas morning favorite which is how to make a cranberry and orange mimosa.

 


Cinnamon-Sugar Pull Apart Bread:

Ingredients:

  • 1⁄2 cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 cup Butter (1 cup)

  • 2 -3 teaspoons Cinnamon

  • 3 (10 oz) cans of Buttermilk Biscuits (the non-flaky ones)

  • 1 cup Sugar

Instructions:

1.) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.


2.) Open your three canisters of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.


3.) Measure your Sugar and Cinnamon and add them to a plastic bag. Shake to combine.


4.) Add in your quartered biscuits and shake making sure that each piece is coated with the cinnamon sugar.


5.) Add the cinnamon sugar-coated biscuit pieces to your bundt pan.


6.) In a small saucepan over medium heat, add in your two sticks (or 1 cup) of butter and melt it. Whisk in your 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and keep stirring until it's all uniform.


7.) Pour this mixture over your biscuit pieces and put into the oven for 30-40 minutes.


8.) Once done baking let it sit in the bundt pan for 15-30 minutes and then turn it out onto a plate.


Cranberry and Orange Mimosa:

Ingredients:

  • 1-ounce Cranberry Juice

  • 1-ounce  fresh-squeezed Orange Juice

  • 2-ounce Champagne, Brute or any other sparkling wine.

  • Squeeze of fresh Lemon Juice

  • Cranberries Garnish

  • Rosemary Sprig Garnish

  • Orange Wedges Garnish

Instructions:

1.) In a Champagne flute, add in your cranberry juice. Using the back of a spoon, softly layer the 1oz of orange juice on top of that.


2.) Top using a white sparkling wine, champagne, or Brute, and a splash of Lemon juice.


3.) For the garnish, take a sprig of rosemary and remove the leaves halfway down. Cut the sprig on a diagonal and pierce the center of three or more cranberries. Add this to the glass along with a small orange wedge cut to hold onto the glass.


I hope these brighten your Christmas morning and become a tradition in your home. Till next time I wish you a very Merry Christmas! -Heather Autumn
