All of these holiday treats sound wonderful! Maybe some of you would like to share your recipes with others. Perhaps we could start a new thread about the recipes.

I make many kinds of cookies including Italian, pistachio, spumoni, oatmeal, etc. I then give them to people I visit once a week along with neighbors and friends. I also make strawberry bread, banana and cranberry.

I usually have a marathon bake-a- thon here and bake tons of cookies in double batches with a wide variety. Some get eaten here, others frozen, and a LOT get given away. I also like to bake specialty breads but in muffin form for portion control to give as gifts and for the home. During the holiday meal I bake either a pie or special cake.

Sausage rolls! I did 20 dozen bite size little guys, plus salami wedges, chocolate chunk shortbread, cherry almond biscotti, and home made Bailey's.

Just thinking about it all makes my teeth hurt. 3 cheers for Monday, January 2nd!!!!!! Designated date to go cold turkey.

We exchange homemade goodies with neighbors and this year I am attempting Moose Munch. I have made the popcorn so far. I do enjoy receiving homemade cookies. Give me strength!

When I was raising the children I would bake 144 gingerbread men with their help. This was my favorite thing. I also loved to eat them, with that whole pound of lard required in the dough.emoticon But now I just buy and if I was in Canada I would be drawn to the fruit cake (dark) with the marzipan icing. Both Charlie and I adore those.

When I decide to do this, I make a variety of different cookies to give away as gift plates. I eat way too many though, so I am not doing it this year.

I love to bake! I make sugar and spice cookies, peanut butter kisses, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, 7 layer bar cookies, rocky road fudge, and more. I'm learning how to make candy now such as almond butter toffee and pecan divinity. I also enjoy making quick breads. My favorites are banana chocolate chip bread and pumpkin cranberry nut bread. emoticonemoticon

I love to make all kinds of cookies, including my Mom good old fashion Italian cookies. Most of them go to hospice patients and their families.

What special holiday treats do you like to make?

I love to make treats for special occasions and to give to friends. I get special requests for potato candy, cookies, caramel nuts, and caramel puff corn.
