12 Things to Bake for Thanksgiving

It’s the holidays, which means it’s officially time to bust out your apron and bake until you run out of clean dishes.

Kidding.

(But not really).

Pinterest is a veritable buffet of options when it comes to what you’re going to put on this year’s Thanksgiving menu, and I rounded up some of the most amazing recipes out there for this special feature. Loosen your pants, crack open a bottle of wine, and break out the stand mixer — it’s time to bake.

Buying and Storing Foods in Bulk

Mason jars with dried fruit

Montanans know better than anyone, the fewer trips you have to make to the grocery store, the happier everyone is. Buying in bulk saves money, trips to the store, and is great for being prepared for emergency scenarios like blizzards and hurricanes.

It also cuts down dramatically on the environmental footprint of our food purchasing habits, reducing travel and waste from packaging.

But how do you store food long term without it going bad?

Wheat Montana 7-Grain Cereal with Apples & Nuts

We have a unique and tasty way to serve up your next batch of Wheat Montana 7-Grain Cereal.

Ingredients:

2 cups Wheat Montana 7-Grain Cereal

2 medium apples, diced

1⁄2 cup walnuts or almonds

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Serves 4

Cook cereal with the instructions on the bag.  You can choose to do the creamy or chewy versions.  We decided to go for the creamier version, but you may cook it however you would like. 

Wheat Montana 7-Grain Cookies

We decided to take the 7-Grain cookies recipe on the back of the Wheat Montana cereal and add a special twist to it.  The original recipe made around six-dozen cookies.  We cut this recipe down to about 1/3 of the size and found this makes the perfect quick treat for a family of about 4.  Start the oven and preheat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

 
Ingredients:

1 Egg

1/3-tsp vanilla extract

1/3-cup butter

1/3-cup brown sugar

1/3-cup white sugar
