For the last twelve days, we've brought you a new baking recipe every day, from grand breakfast pastries to simple semolina crackers, and all the desserts you (and we) could handle. Here, at last, are all of those recipes in one place. They're all so perfect for the holidays, they'll excite even the most reluctant baker.
