"Whether you're having a party or just enjoying time with loved ones, our red hot trends and recipes make it easy for you to create memorable holidays at home this year," said Kristen Olson, Senior Food Editor, Betty Crocker Kitchens. "You can shake up some Cherry Jam-hattans at cocktail hour, serve an 'Around the World' cheese ball flight to give party guests a taste of global flavors, or spend a fun afternoon making DIY cookie trees and holiday memories with your kids."

1.  Sweet & Savory CookiesA biscuit-shortbread hybrid from France, sables have been named the cookie of the year in our test kitchens. For a salty-sweet flavor contrast, we added an unusual savory element—Kalamata olives!—and dark chocolate chips. The result? Mind-blowing, melt-in-your mouth goodness.

2.  The New FruitcakeA modern take on a Christmastime classic, this luscious two-layer cake, studded with whiskey-soaked fruits and filled with sweetened mascarpone, will be the belle of any holiday ball.

3.  Crafty Cookies for KidsBake your way to fun family memories with our super-easy DIY (Decorate-It-Yourself) Cookie Tree. With infinite possibilities for personalization, it's as fun to make as it is to eat. (Almost!)

4.  Global Flavor Flights In search of a fresh holiday party staple? Look no further than our crowd-sized flight of mini cheese balls. With bases made from both cream cheese and goat cheese, it's the globally inspired mix-ins that turn these small bites into something truly memorable.
