Favorite Holiday treats

Discussion in 'Campfire' started by Polywog, Dec 16, 2010.

  1. Around our house this time of year I start to see and smell little treats cooking that I don't see or smell any other time of the year.. My favorite is the cheese log my wife makes with pecans and a hint of chili powder on the outside.. Oh and I about forgot the spinach dip with Hawaiian bread and all the little cookies and the pecan fudge.. Man I've got to dig those stretch pants out soon.. So what are some of your favorite Holiday treats??

    I love scratch baking. Used to bake goodies for the Mr to take to work when he was still on active duty.

    Not big on eating any of it though, don't care for much sweets.

    She makes a cheese log? How do women learn how to cook these things?!?

    Seriously...I'm going to try to make an apple pie from scratch for only the second time EVER. And there's no guarantee it'll come out right. But cookies and cake i can do.

    I'm looking forward to my daddy's fudge when I go visit him this weekend. YAY!

    I had some of those the other day. Those are good :biggrin:

    My sister-in-law makes these amazing bacon wrapped green beans for Thanksgiving and Christmas. They've got brown sugar added to them and has a nice sweet flavor to them. One of our family's holiday traditions is that my mom makes homemade pizza. Pizza Hut ain't got nothin' on my momma's pizza :up: She also makes the best oatmeal cookies and homemade peanut butter cups.
