holiday baking 2004

This season, it’s not only forgivable to indulge your sweet tooth,

we're encouraging it with this year's holiday baking treats. Apple, sweet potato, pumpkin and peppermint-all traditional elements of holiday baking-are being given new looks this year by pastry chefs Johnny Iuzzini of Jean Georges, Maura Kilpatrick of Oleana, Karen DeMasco of Craft, Elizabth Katz of Fiamma Osteria, Nicole Kaplan of Eleven Madison Park, and Matt Maslowski of Lacroix at the Rittenhouse Hotel. Plus, Rose Levy Beranbaum offers up her classic lemon butter bar recipe - ideal for a holiday tea party.
