Christies Christmas Catalogue
For those of you that don’t know, I moved to Vancouver over the summer.
While I am enjoying the fact that I don’t have to worry about the snow that is currently falling in Saskatoon, there are a few things that I am missing. One of those has to be all the Christmas goodies we have coming out. So here’s all the goodies we have available for the Christmas season, which you can order now! And if anyone wanted to priority ship any of these to me I wouldn’t be upset!
A sweet, yeasted bread that has the texture of a cake and is light, airy and delicious. It has its origins in Milan, Italy but we have been producing our Panettone for the Christmas Season for over 20 years. Our flavour is traditional and features butter, vanilla, candied orange and lemon peel and raisins. We top it off with a special blend of almond flour, cocoa butter, vanilla and finely sliced almonds.
A traditional cake intensely packed with candied fruit and nuts that are soaked in rum and brandy. Legend has it that our fruitcake recipe was used on the CN railways at Christmas time early this century. My uncle passed the recipe onto our father and it has been part of our Christmas production for decades.
Like all good brownies, ours are dense and full of chocolate. The brownie is packed with chocolate chips and dutch-process cocoa and topped with chocolate ganache. Between all that chocolate is a cream cheese icing to offset all of that chocolate. The feature cream cheese icing flavour for this month is eggnog, with rum and nutmeg flavour notes.
Who can resist taking a big bite out of Santa? Perfect for the kid in all of us, we take our sugar cookies and turn up the visual appeal by colourfully decorating these by hand.
Gingerbread ____ (insert pronoun of choice). We choose bears. Crisp, gingery and perfect to get your holiday on.
We have been making butter tarts the same way for over 50 years. The recipe hasn't changed because we like it just the way it is. Hey, if it ain't broke...don't fix it.
Peanut butter, butterscotch and marshmallows, the seasonal treat we all know and love...but you haven't had it the way we do it. We take the classic square and update it by mashing it up with a blondie packed full of white chocolate chips. The results...your new favourite holiday treat.
Imagine a sweet and chewy date bar and then swap out the dates for some seasonal inspiration and you have our Cranberrry Crumble. The filling is sweet and tart and full of cranberries and fresh orange juice & zest.
A Christie's classic "From the Vault" is coming back for this Christmas season. Two crisp oatmeal cookies sandwiched together with sweet date filling. Just like grandma used to make.
Soft, sweet, buttery and filled with raspberry jam, our shortbread will literally melt in your mouth. We whip and pipe the cookie batter to keep it soft and smooth.
A selection of Christies holiday classics, perfect for nibbling on during the holidays or gifting to a loved one.
I have to say I am quite jealous of everyone in Saskatoon. I'm particularly going to miss the Jam Jam cookies. What Christmas goodie are you looking forward to? Let us know, and don't forget to place your order!
