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:


  • 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


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:


  • 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


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
