What traditional things do you make every year, or what do you remember your family making as a kid?

My one grandma always made apricot and prune nut rolls.

I would kill for some of my grandma's chicken noodle soup, it was awesome-she made home made noodles.

I love nut roll, it is one of my favorites.

I make shortbread every year...that's my families Scottish tradition.

I make sugar cookies, peanutbutter and chocolate walnut fudge, and turtles.

My mom makes peach brandy.

We also make raisin filled and fruit filled cookies.

I love all the foods at Christmas! Yummy! I can't wait to get started.

Yeah I always make short breads at Christmas time. I love how they just melt in your mouth. Yum.. Coffee bread is another, sugar cookies are a good one as the kids can easily decorate them after....I like trying the little holiday receipes in books and even if they taste alright they never look as pretty as they do in the pictures... :lol:

I make rum balls....and get sick eating as many of them as I can :LOL:

I also make caramel corn, fudge, peanut brittle and as many cookies as my husband will allow :lol: And on Christmas Eve I bake an Angel Food cake so that on Christmas afternoon we can turn it into a birthday cake and sing happy birthday to Jesus. It's a tradition my grandmother started with her family as a young child and continued with her children. The grandchildren and the greatgrandchildren carry on the tradtition today :D

I have a question for all who like to bake at Christmas..........I love baking but never seem to get as much done as I'd like to. Someone suggested that I start early and freeze what I make as I go along. It's a good idea but what I'm wondering is when to start? How long can cookies, bars etc be in the freezer and still taste fresh? One person told me 6 weeks another said three months. Any suggestions............thanks in advance.

My mother freezes cookies and stuff for months. And they are just fine, never had a problem with them.

My mom makes what are called poorboys, its a cake type bar with a creamcheese icing, we love it and it's a tradition. Of course rum balls, peanutbutter cookies, sugar cookies, all the usual stuff. And I carry on those for my family.

Thanks for the info msclaus. From what you've told me I can start anytime. Monday is our Canadian Thanksgiving and my weekend off (I have to work every other one) so what better time to get started :lol:

I love to bake around the holidays, but not as much for our household as for my neighbors. I do several kinds of cookies, brownies and (what seems to be a favorite) pumpkin bread. Then it is time to spread some Christmas cheer. It is one of my favorite ways to ring in the season... :D
