Countdown til Xmas Eve: Sweets & Tasty Treats
What gets you more in the holiday mood than all the delicious sweets, treats, and concoctions. My Father’s fudge was the best ever, he had a magic touch, I can’t do it justice. Just writing this – I can smell the holiday goodies baking. Chocolate, almond, gingerbread, and cinnamon . . .
Just don’t try to get me to drink any Gluhwein, eggnog, or syllabub – I’m a hot chocolate gal (a little added bourbon doesn’t hurt). What’s your favorite holiday treat?
My mom was German and made pffeurneuse (sp) Christmas cookies. I think we just called them snowballs. One of my favorites!!
Thanks for the delish photos
Can you make some?
Nice piece, there’s something about a good Christmas market that just warms the soul.
I look forward to going back someday.
I missed this one. I love the sweater cookies – so cute! I would challenge your father’s fudge with my mother’s fudge! I remember watching her make it, especially dropping the test “ball” in the water. I don’t think I have ever tried to make her fudge, but I think it was the recipe on the Hershey’s Cocoa can.
Dad also used to drop the ball in the water … I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to replicate. I’m willing to try again!
Those goodies look yummy.
yummy! I ove gingerbread cookies and Croatian traditional desseet orehnjača ( walnut cake)
Txs so much for visiting so many of my posts. I really appreciate it!
