    I make the normal sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies that are popular at Christmas time, as well as a number of different chocolates (milk, dark, and white)

    what are some of your favorite Holiday goodies to make and share?

    Buttertarts. I have a recipe where the shells are actually shortbread. Of course, I like anything sweet, so I'm not hard to please.

    My favorite cookie recipies are all family secrets! In other words, I could share them, but then I'd have to kill you, and wouldn't that be a foul way to start out the holiday season?

    Latkes (potato pancakes) for Chanukah! I normally stay away from fried foods, but these are delicious, especially with applesauce. Some people prefer putting sour cream on top of them. .

    The family expects me to bring Pistachio Cake on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. It's essentially yellow cake mix with pistachio pudding mix added along with 6 eggs, oil, water and milk. The topping is a combination of whipped cream, cool whip and another box of pistachio pudding mix.

    white chocolate roulage???????
    4 Eggs, separated
    3/4 c Sugar, divided
    1 tb Vegetable Oil
    1 ts Vanilla Extract
    2/3 c Cake Flour, sifted
    1 ts Baking Powder
    1/4 ts Salt
    2 tb Powdered Sugar
    1 White Chocolate Cream
    -Filling (recipe below)
    1 White Chocolate Curls

    FROM: Daniel Reemes

    Servings: 8

    Lightly oil bottom and sides of a 15- x10- x1-inch
    jellyroll pan with vegetable oil; line with wax paper
    and lightly oil and flour wax paper. Set aside.

    Beat egg yolks at high speed of an electric mixer
    until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar; beating
    until mixture is think and lemon colored (about 5
    minutes). Stir in vegetable oil and vanilla; set aside.

    Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until foamy;
    gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating until
    egg whites are stiff but not dry. Fold whites into
    yolks. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt;
    gradually fold into egg mixture. Spread batter evenly
    into prepared pan. Bake at 350" for 8 to 10 minutes.

    Sift powdered sugar in a 15 x 10 inch rectangle on a
    cloth towel. When cake is done, immediately loosen
    from sides of pan, and turn out onto sugared towel.
    Carefully peel off wax paper. Starting at narrow end,
    roll up cake and towel together; let cake cool
    completely on a wire rack, seam side down.

    Unroll cake. Spread cake with half of White Chocolate
    Cream Filling and carefully reroll cake, without
    towel. Place cake on a serving plate, seam side down;
    spread remaining filing on all sides. Garnish with
    white chocolate curls.
