Wine-Friendly Holiday Sweets

At this festive time of year, we all enjoy serving wine with different courses of our meals – including dessert! Here are some other ideas for incorporating wine into your favorite holiday sweets!

Perfect to serve with a glass of Concannon Selected Vineyards Chardonnay alongside! Here’s the recipe:

Cookies for Dipping: Let the kiddies dip their Christmas cookies in a glass of milk! Offer the grown-ups glasses of fruity wine to pair with an assortment of holiday cookies – from classic biscotti to buttery shortbread and more. A fruity wine like Riesling makes a great companion for holiday sweets!
