The day has come. This is my 12th day of holiday treats, thus completing my 12 Days of Holiday Treats series. Woohoo!

Have you ever had a See’s Bordeaux? I grew up on that stuff. Every Christmas and Easter there would be no shortage of See’s candy around us, and I would always go for the Bordeaux first. I’ll take this creamy, rich, sugary bon bon over anything with nuts or caramel. I’m one of those uniquely talented folks who can identify every See’s candy from the outside before even taking a bite. I had to avoid biting into that nasty one that tastes like fruitcake, afterall. When I figured out I could actually replicate my favorite bon bon from the comfort of my own kitchen, I was a little thrilled, to put it mildly.

The inside consists of brown sugar, butter, heavy cream, and coffee. No wonder it tastes good, right? Those four ingredients alone could satisfy every sweet tooth craving I’ll ever have!

I’m not the best chocolate dipper in the world. In fact, I think I kind of suck at it. Because my first dip wasn’t very pretty, I ended up throwing them back in for a double dip and that did the trick! I didn’t have chocolate cake sprinkles like you see on the real Bordeaux’s but knew I had to pretty them up a bit, so I just put my extra chocolate in a plastic bag, snipped off the corner, and drizzled it on top. Perfection.

Before I took my final photos, I threw my dried bon bons in the freezer with all of my other holiday treats. I can’t remember if i simply ran out of time or ran out of daylight, but the final photos didn’t happen on the day I made them. Pity, because once you stick them in the freezer and then pull them out, the chocolate loses its shine, but we’ll just pretend I didn’t do that, mmmm kay?

The inside is a wonderful, sweet, rich, creamy, naughty center. Again, had I not been in a rush and actually allowed these beauties to come to room temperature instead of cutting a frozen one in half, they would have looked even more awesome, but I’m not too proud to admit my mistakes! It didn’t stop me from eating them either!

Recipe type: dessert
Yields: 30 bon bons
Ingredients
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee (I used a 0.11oz Starbucks Via pack)
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
Instructions
  1. Using a heavy bottom saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together over medium high heat and bring to boil. Allow to boil for about two minutes.
  2. Stir in cream, instant coffee, and salt and allow to come to a boil again for about 30 seconds while stirring constantly to avoid scorching. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Add sifted powdered sugar to mixture and stir in well until a consistent dough is formed. Chill until mixture holds shape similar to play dough, about 2 hours.
  3. Roll sugar dough into 2-inch balls and set on a wax paper lined sheet. Freeze for about 10 minutes for easier dipping.
  4. Melt chocolate and butter at 50% power in 1 minute increments in microwave, stirring after each minute, until melted.
  5. Dip candy balls into melted chocolate and allow to set on the wax paper. Either sprinkle with chocolate cake sprinkles or pipe a very thin stream of chocolate on top, if desired.
  6. Store in airtight container.

12 Days of Holiday Treats | Self Proclaimed Foodie

I’d better get all these treats packaged up and mailed off. My poor family may be watching all of these posts, wondering where the heck their package is!

Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies are a light and crisp bite sized sweet treat that everyone will love around the holidays!

I first made little merengues like this at Halloween. I turned them into ghosts and set them on top of chocolate cupcakes. Those were pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself. Meringues are really quite easy to make and they’re quite forgiving as long as you don’t make them too big and you give them the proper amount of time to dry in the oven. These little treats are essetially egg whites and sugar. No flour means they’re gluten free without the hassle of actually trying to make them gluten free, and the egg whites mean that they’re full of healthy protein and basically good for you. Right? Right. Okay, we’ll go with that. Either way, they’re a fun little addition to your holiday treat line up and they are rather easy to make. They just take a little bit of time. My recommendation is to make them in the early evening on a night when you’re using your crockpot instead of the oven, let them cook, and before heading to bed all you need to do is turn the oven off and crack the oven door. Then, they’ll be perfect in the morning!

Recipe type: dessert
Yields: 2 dozen
Ingredients
  • 120 grams egg whites (about 4 eggs worth)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 200 grams superfine baking sugar (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • green gel food coloring
  • sprinkles of your choosing
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with a silpat or parchment paper.
  2. Note - if you don't have super fine baking sugar, you can run it through your food processor for a minute or two to turn it into a finer grain.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on low-medium speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat the whites until they hold soft peaks. Add the sugar, a little at a time, and continue to beat until the meringue holds very stiff peaks. When you think they're done, rub a small amount in between your fingers to ensure all the sugar has dissolved. Do not over process; you want them to have a nice sheen. Beat in the vanilla and peppermint extract. Add enough green gel food coloring to achieve desired color.
  4. Use either a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2 inch star tip, or just a plastic storage bag with the corner snipped off. Transfer the meringue to the bag and, holding the bag vertically, pipe with even pressure little swirly mounds about 1-2 inches tall. Be aware that the larger and taller you make your meringues, the more likely they are to fall over during the drying process.
  5. Bake the meringues for approximately 90 minutes or until they are dry and crisp to the touch. Turn off the oven, open the door, and leave the meringues in the oven to finish drying several hours, or even overnight.
  6. Store in air tight container and they will keep several days at room temperature.
  7. Makes 20-24 Meringue Ghosts.

Welcome to day 10 of 12!

12 Days of Holiday Treats | Self Proclaimed Foodie

I couldn’t NOT make marshmallows, right?  I mean, I made peppermint marshmallows last Christmas and strawberry marshmallows over the summer, so I’ve started my own personal trend and anticipate making at least a couple different kinds of marshmallows each year going forward. It’s kinda my thing now.

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows are downright delicious and quite easy to make. Your hot chocolate and s'mores will never be the same!

I never quite know if my marshmallows are going to turn out when I deviate from my original recipe. For example, I pretty much took my original recipe and added melted dark chocolate to the mix for this version. I really wasn’t sure if that would completely ruin these marshmallows by changing the consistency, but I’m beginning to realize that marshmallows are incredibly forgiving. These were absolutely wonderful!

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows are downright delicious and quite easy to make. Your hot chocolate and s'mores will never be the same!

Can you imagine how good these would be melted on a graham cracker or floating in a piping hot cup of homemade hot chocolate? I don’t have to imagine it, I’m able to remember it, because I did both!

And since I was dipping all sorts of things in chocolate this year, I figured I might as well dip some of these marshmallows in chocolate. Yeah, that was a good decision.

If you’re looking for a new treat to make and have never tried making marshmallows, they’re not only fun to make but they’re really fun to eat!

Recipe type: dessert
Yields: 100 marshmallows
Ingredients
  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup ice cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (I used ultra fine baking sugar)
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • Nonstick spray
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the gelatin with the ice cold water and give it a swirl to ensure the gelatin doesn't clump. Let sit.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Heat on medium high with the lid on for a few minutes to bring it to a boil. Then, remove the lid and heat on high heat until a candy thermometer reads exactly 240 degrees F. As soon as it reaches temperature, remove it from the heat.
  3. With the whisk attached to the stand mixer, start mixing the gelatin and water on low speed. Slowly pour the hot sugar mixture into the bowl. Once all of the hot sugar mixture has been added, turn the speed to high and continue to mix until you get a beautiful white marshmallow mixture that is just warm to the touch, about 8-12 minutes. While this is mixing, melt chocolate in microwave at half power in one minute increments, stirring after each minute. With the mixer still running, add melted chocolate and mix for one more minute.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine corn starch, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Spray 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray as well as a rubber spatula. Add about 1/3 of the corn starch blend, then shake the pan to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Use spatula to transfer the marshmallow mixture from the bowl to the baking dish and spread into an even layer. Top with half of the remaining corn starch mixture, and spread it across the top to cover. Allow the marshmallows to sit uncovered 4-10 hours.
  5. Lift the marshmallows out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into desired shapes and then roll each individual marshmallow in remaining corn starch mixture to coat all sticky sides.
  6. Store in air tight container. They can also be frozen, if needed.

12 Days of Holiday Treats | Self Proclaimed Foodie

I can’t believe I actually finished all of my recipes!  I still have three more to post, but they are all done and photographed. Whew. I don’t know how I did it, but I am so ready for a vacation.

Looking for a cookie that will really impress? Everyone will love these Striped Chocolate Cookies made with a touch of peppermint, perfect for the holidays!

These cookies almost didn’t happen, folks. When I plan out a dozen holiday recipes, the rolled cookies are usually the ones I end up loathing. After I make super simple treats like buckeye balls or peppermint patties, I find myself asking “WHY?” when I start the process of mixing, rolling, refrigerating, etc. Because of that, this recipe alternated on and off my list several times. In the end, I finally committed and I’m so glad I did!

First of all, I have to admit that these are one of the best tasting cookies I’ve ever made. The chocolate layer is rich and dark and the white layer has a hint of peppermint. Its the perfect flavor combination. Plus, the texture is downright perfect.

Second, I have to admit I’m a huge fan of how cute they turned out. My first objective was to actually turn them into little spiral pinwheels, but as I started to roll the dough layers, it was clear that was not going to happen… successfully. It was at that point that I stacked them and I’m so glad I did!  I almost named them jailhouse cookies because it looks like they’re behind bars, but I opted for a more obvious name.

If you make one cookie this year, this should be it. I’m giving my vote to the striped cookies and I’m electing to stash away some for myself. Enjoy!

Recipe type: Dessert
Yields: 6 dozen
Ingredients
Peppermint Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (2 sticks), room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
Chocolate Dough:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup natural cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (2 sticks) room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
For the peppermint dough:
  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, confectioners sugar, and salt; set aside. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and continue mixing for another couple of minutes. Stop mixing and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  2. Add the egg and peppermint extract. Beat just until mixed.
  3. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing slowly until blended.
  4. Place the dough between two pieces of lightly floured parchment or waxed paper. Roll into a 10 by 12 by 1/4 inch rectangle. Slide the covered sheets of dough onto a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and salt; set aside. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and continue mixing for another couple of minutes. Stop mixing and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat just until mixed.
  3. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing slowly until blended.
  4. Place the dough between two pieces of lightly floured parchment or waxed paper. Roll into a 10 by 12 by 1/4 inch rectangle. Slide the covered sheets of dough onto a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.
To make the striped cookie:
  1. Roll each of the doughs to about 1/8-1/4 inch thick and do your best to make them the same size. Using a cup of water, wet your finger tips and barely moisten the top of one dough and the bottom of the other so that when you stack them, they stick together under gentle pressure. Using a straight edge (I used a long frosting spreader as a guide), use a pizza cutter to cut the stacked dough into 1 inch wide strips. Its important that these strips are straight and uniform length.
  2. Stack these bi-colored strips, moistening each layer so that they stick when stacked. Continue stacking until you have the desired height (I did a total of 8 layers). Use a sharp knife to cut 1/4 inch thick cookies. Trim any uneven edges with a sharp knife.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set the cookies at least 1/2 inch apart from one another and bake in preheated oven until the white dough is just beginning to brown, about 16 to 18 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  4. Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to cook to reduce spreading during baking.
  5. Store in airtight container in freezer for longer storage.

Have you ever had someone give you a cookie kit before? Every year I tell myself to make a bunch of them to hand out to friends, co-workers, and teachers and I never have. That is, until this year. I finally put together some of my own homemade cookie kits and I was not only impressed with how easy they were to make, but they made a super tasty cookie as well!

Cranberry White Chocolate Mason Jar Cookie Kits are fun homemade gifts that beautifully display the dry ingredients of a tasty holiday cookie.

I couldn’t just put a kit together without trying it out first, now could I? Okay, okay. The fact that I had a major cookie craving may have played into the fact that I made a batch as well. You caught me.

Cranberry White Chocolate Mason Jar Cookie Kits are fun homemade gifts that beautifully display the dry ingredients of a tasty holiday cookie.

When I was trying to think about the kind of cookie kit I wanted to make, I figured I had two options – chocolate candy pieces or dried fruit. I wanted something colorful that would look appropriate for the holidays. I ended up going with cranberry and white chocolate because the tart of the cranberries pairs so well with the sweet and creamy white chocolate, plus who doesn’t love red and white at Christmas time? The mix also contains pecan pieces and rolled oats for texture, and the rest of the ingredients you’d expect in a cookie like sugar, flour, baking soda and salt.

I picked up a few sparkly fabrics to decorate the lids only to realize they were tulle and rather transparent. Thanks to my quick thinking and lack of other craft materials in my house, I figured a brown coffee filter would do the trick between the metal lid and the tulle. It ended up looking super cute and only took a few minutes to make.

These cookie kits are super easy to make, whether you’re putting together one or twenty at a time. They’re one of those homemade, inexpensive gifts that make for a really nice gesture. Who wouldn’t want something like this where they only have to mix in three wet ingredients and 12 minutes later they have warm delicious cookies in front of them? I would… which is why I kept a couple kits for myself!

Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Holiday Treats series!!!

12 Days of Holiday Treats | Self Proclaimed Foodie

It’s pretty much a given that you have to include some kind of gingerbread treat at Chritmas time. There’s just something magical about the taste of gingerbread. Or is it the smell? Oh how I love the smell of Christmas. Yesterday was the day after Thanksgiving. I absolutely hate to shop, so any Black Friday shopping is done from the comfort of my home office. I learned my lesson 8 years ago after standing in line at 4am on a freezing morning with a newborn in tow just to get into Toys R Us to buy a train table that didn’t fit in my car. Never again. Anyway, since that year of bad Black Friday decisions, our family tradition has been to get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. Living in Oregon, I get to choose from the freshest, most gorgeous noble firs from a farm just down the street. Now, my living room is filled with the sent of Christmas! Oh, how I love the smell.

Gingerbread Crinkles are a soft and chewy cookie full of molasses and holiday spice. They are the perfect Christmas treat!

If you want your kitchen to smell divine, you must make these cookies. I’ve made crinkles before, but I’ve always just rolled them in powdered sugar. This time, however, I rolled them first in granulated sugar and then powdered sugar. This helped in two ways. First, it gave the outside a surprise crunch which made my mouth very happy. Second, it protected the powdered sugar from dissolving into the melted butter so it made the cookies extra pretty.

Not only do these cookies taste amazing, but they are so visually pleasing. I don’t know what it is about a soft and chewy crinkle, but they are pure goodness!

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
for baking:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine flour, sugars, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt at low speed until combined. Stop the mixer and add the butter. Mix at medium-low speed until the mixture is sandy and the dry ingredients are coated in butter, about 1-2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and, with the mixer running, gradually add the molasses and heavy cream. Mix until the dough is evenly moistened, about 20 seconds. Increase the speed to medium and mix until thoroughly combined, about 10 seconds.
  2. Transfer the dough to a large piece of plastic wrap, shape into a disk, wrap tightly and freeze until firm, 20 to 30 minutes. Alternatively, refrigerate the dough 2 hours or overnight.
  3. To bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Roll chilled dough into tablespoon sized balls. Roll each dough ball in the granulated sugar first until coated and then roll again in confectioners sugar until coated evenly. Place the sugar coated dough balls 1-inch apart from each other on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake the cookies until set in the centers, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven when they start to crack. Do not over bake. Cool the cookies on the sheets 2 minutes, then remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Welcome to day 2 of my 12 days of Holiday Treats series!

12 Days of Holiday Treats | Self Proclaimed Foodie

I know. I know. Christmas is still over a month away and here I am posting Christmas cookies! Wanna know what’s even more weird? When you have a food blog, you make your Christmas cookies in October (if you’re organized) because you have to allow yourself time to edit the photos, write the post, and get it posted in time for people to actually see it before Christmas. Gone are the days when I do my Christmas baking the week before Christmas, while smelling my tree under the twinkle of the lights. Now, I just think of myself as being unusually proactive!

Shortbread Cookie Bites are a fun bite sized sweet treat that can be made for any birthday or holiday by customizing the fun sprinkles you choose!

These little shortbread cookie bits are super fun for a few reasons. First, you get sprinkles throughout the dough as well as on top. Who wouldn’t love that? Second, you get a TON of cookies out of this one batch. Third, they’re small, so that mean’s they’re pretty much guilt free {sarcasm}. And lastly, you can change out the color of the sprinkles so that you can make these for any occasion! Think pink or blue or a combination of both for a baby shower, or just colorful sprinkles for a birthday.

This is what the little cubes of dough looks like. I prefer to cook on a stone and by the time they’re done cooking, they are evenly browned all around, not just on the bottoms.

Don’t they just make you want to get out the decorations and blast the Christmas tunes? Can you tell I love this time of year??

The almond extract gives these little cookies the perfect flavor and the fact that they are eggless means you can eat the batter. Who am I kidding? I never let the egg in cookie, cake or brownie batter stop me!  Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post to see all of holiday recipes from 2014 and 2015.

This recipe uses pure vanilla extract. Did you know you can make your own homemade vanilla extract? It makes the perfect gift too. Watch how in the video below.

Recipe type: Dessert
Yields: 100 cookie bites
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons sprinkles, divided
Instructions

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together butter and sugar until well combined. Mix in almond extract and vanilla. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour and salt and mix until combined. Add in half of the sprinkles (set remaining half in small bowl) and stir to combine.
  3. Press dough into a half inch thick layer on prepared baking sheet. Cover surface of dough with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least an hour (can be overnight).
  4. To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Cut dough into 1/2-inch squares using a large sharp knife. Gently press each cube into the bowl of sprinkles to get more to stick to the top. Set cubes on ungreased baking sheet (note: they won't spread much if the dough is cold so you can squeeze a lot on). Bake in preheated oven 8 - 12 minutes and cool baking sheet.
  6. Store completely cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.

'Tis the season when all friends and family come together to celebrate the holidays and there's no better way than with 20 of My Favorite Holiday Recipes.

The holidays are a time for catching up with loved ones, sledding, wrapping gifts, making crafts, and spending an obscene amount of time in the kitchen. I actually prefer to cook most during the summer when the fresh produce is abundant, but there’s something magical about warming the kitchen with your oven and seeing a poof of flour fly through the air as you attempt to make that fifth batch of cookies. We through all of our healthy judgement out the window, knowing we can once again redeem ourselves at the gym in January. Oh, how I loathe how crowded the gym gets in January. I’ve actually been really good these past few months with my sugar intake, but I’m about to totally let loose and enjoy myself all the way through January 1st like I do every year at this time. I think you should too!

Perfect Prime Rib Roast

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on YummlyShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

This holiday season, serve your friends and family a Perfect Prime Rib Roast for dinner. Its an elegant yet easy to make main dish.

This holiday season, serve your friends and family a Perfect Prime Rib Roast for dinner. Its an elegant yet easy to make main dish.

Once a year I’ll make a prime rib roast. Why only once a year? Well, because every year we order a quarter cow from a local ranch. Once you buy local grass fed and finished beef, it is really hard to go back go buying any beef at the grocery store. Not only is the taste and quality far superior to most anything you’ll find at the store, but for me, the convenience of having so many cuts of meat at the ready is necessary to keep me creative in the kitchen. When you buy a quarter cow, however, you only get one rib roast and that’s only if you specifically request it.

This holiday season, serve your friends and family a Perfect Prime Rib Roast for dinner. Its an elegant yet easy to make main dish.

This has always been my favorite way to cook a rib roast. It’s actually incredibly simple. As with any large cut of meat, you must depend on an accurate thermometer. Long ago I stopped following directions that just gave oven temperature and time. When you cook a giant hunk of meat in a roasting pan, you have to get the inside to the exact right temperature and you have to let it properly rest if you want a perfectly cooked, tender, juicy roast. There are so many factors involved including the size of your roast, its starting temperature (did you pull it straight from the refrigerator or did you let it rest on the counter for a bit?), the temperature of your oven, and how consistently your oven cooks. I’ve learned all of these things over time through the practice of ruining several large meals. Lessons learned! Now, I won’t cook anything like this without my thermometer. When I make prime rib roast, I like to offer two different kinds of sauce. This recipe makes a bold rich red wine sauce but I’m also of the opinion that a good prime rib roast always deserves a little horseradish kick on the side too. Enjoy!

Recipe type: main dish
Yields: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 (4-5 pound) bone in beef rib roast
  • 1 (750 mL) bottle red wine
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
optional:
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1-2 teaspoons creamed horseradish
Instructions
  1. Allow meat to sit at room temperature for at least an hour prior to cooking.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and ensure top rack is low enough such that the roasting pan will be in the middle of the oven.
  3. Using a roasting pan with a rack, add 2 cups of wine and the beef broth to the pan. Reserve the remaining wine for later. Set the roast in the rack, rib side down and fat side up. Mix olive oil, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in small bowl and spread on top of roast.
  4. Insert meat thermometer into meaty part of roast avoiding contact with the bones.
  5. Roast in 450 degree oven for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 115 to 120°F for medium rare (125 to 130°F after resting), or 125 to 130°F for medium (135 to 140°F after resting). And remember, a roast will continue to rise by 5 to 10°F as it rests. I removed my roast from the oven when it hit 125°F. Total cooking time will depend on size of roast and initial temperature. Once removed from oven, transfer roast to plate and loosely tent with foil and allow to rest for at least 15-20 minutes.
  6. While the roast is resting, place the pan on the burner with the rack removed. Add remaining wine and cook on low temperature to burn off some of the alcohol and work in all the flavor from the bottom of the pan. When roast has finished resting, skim off any fat from the wine sauce and serve warm sauce along side the roast.
  7. If desired, mix sour cream and horse radish to serve along side roast as well. For planning purposes, this roast takes about 15 minutes per pound of cooking time plus resting time, so based on the weight you can work backwards to figure out when to start the cooking process.

This holiday season, serve your friends and family a Perfect Prime Rib Roast for dinner. Its an elegant yet easy to make main dish.
