The Christmas event has absolutely exploded in FarmVille 2, with new quests to complete inside the holiday tree, a lonely reindeer to lure into our farms and much much more. On top of all of that, there are three new recipes to cook in the Crafting Kitchen that go along with the new "Winter Decorating" item theme in the store. We're here with a guide to these three recipes, letting you know just how valuable they are in the long run. Let's get started!
The first recipe is Rutabaga Bisque, which is created using one Broth and 10 Rutabagas. Rutabagas are the new coin crop in this Winter Decorating item theme, and they can be planted for 32 coins per square. They take just four hours to grow, and can be sold for 46 coins each, if you choose not to use them in this recipe. That makes 10 of them worth 460 coins. Meanwhile, the Broth is a recipe in and of itself that requires three Water and six Onions to craft. A single Broth will sell for 420 coins, making the total ingredient investment cost 880. A single Rutabaga Bisque can be sold for 1,460 coins, so there is a nice profit to be made from each Bisque, if you're going after all of the Mastery Ribbons for Rutabagas anyway.
The second recipe is a simple Cinnamon Bun, which is created using three Batter and six Cinnamon each. This is technically a premium recipe, since Cinnamon can most easily be earned from the premium Cinnamon Tree. A Cinnamon Tree costs 12 Farm Bucks in the store, but if you're not interested in purchasing one, you still have a chance of earning Cinnamon by visiting friends that did purchase one and tend those. If you have the Cinnamon requirement under control, you'll still need to craft Batters using Flour and Eggs, with Flour coming from Wheat. This is a complex crafting recipe, and a single Batter sells for 290 coins. Three Batters are worth 870 coins in total, so take that into account when looking at the Cinnamon Bun's sell price of 2,240 coins.
The final recipe in this new trio is Mulberry Pie, which is also a "premium" recipe. A single pie requires one Pie Crust and 14 Mulberries to create, with Mulberries coming from a Mulberry Tree. A Mulberry Tree is available to purchase in the store for 12 Farm Bucks, and it takes 18 hours to be ready to harvest. Meanwhile, a Pie Crust can be created using one Stick of Butter and two Flour. Again, the Flour is created using Wheat, while Butter comes from Milk. A single Pie Crust can be sold for 380 coins, but the final sale price of this Mulberry Pie makes up for that investment, as it can be sold for 2,830 coins.
All three of these recipes will be available to craft for the next 22 days, while the Winter Decorating items themselves will disappear after 16.
