Favorite Holiday Goodies
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?
Any kind of cookie! My mom and I make about 18 different kinds of cookies at Christmas time.
Always make my sister peanutbutter fudge. Myself sugar cookies with frosting, that fatting box of turtles or carmels those are the ones I pick out first.

Turkish delights - particularly with Almonds.
Buttertarts. I have a recipe where the shells are actually shortbread. Of course, I like anything sweet, so I'm not hard to please.
So, is anyone going to share recipes, or are we all going to drool without hope?!?
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. .

I always make different cakes. I make a good poundcake, german chocolate. Everyone always looks for me to make them.
What are Butter Tarts? Sounds yummy.
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.
Black Cake. It is a favourite Trinidadian christmas goodie. Don't ask me how it is made however.... :(

Ummm... pecan pie. I didn't get my fill at Thanksgiving, so I'm eagerly awaiting my next chance for pecan pie.
