Ingredients in Little Women
Little Women is a beautifully written story about family and love and loss. It’s about making your way in the world. In that sense, it really is the perfect Christmas story because this season is all about sharing and loving.
Little Women has a lot of warmth and spirit, and all of the recipes I chose reflect that. These are classic holiday recipes that I simply adore.
Little Women’s menu includes:
Hot Spiced Cider
There is NOTHING I love more than drinking spiced cider during the holidays. It’s warm, it’s spicy, it’s the full embodiment of Christmas.
Plus it reminds me of the scenes in Little Women where the girls and Marmee are sitting around a fire, talking girly talk. I will definitely be trying this recipe from Recipe.com
Soft Ginger Cookies
I just recently had ginger cookies with pumpkin sauce for the first time. They were AMAZING! I was immediately obsessed, so finding this recipe was going to happen whether or not I did this Pages and Pairings post.
The recipe is from The Comfort of Cooking blog, who doesn’t make it sound too challenging to those of us who are baking challenged.
Sweet Cinnamon Bun Pie
Cinnamon buns are the best way to start Christmas morning. After opening all your presents, of course. Why not make this already sweet breakfast item into a pie, right? No harm there…
I feel like this dish could have made it to one of the fancy parties the March girls attended. Nothing says fancy like pie.
Eat, read and be merry – Little Women style!
