sniderscion said...

My favourite treats are these gooey cookie-like confections that my sister-in-law makes called "Hello Dollies". They're made with graham wafer crumbs, walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips and coconut topped with condensed milk. Real comfort food :)

Candy Cane Shortbread/bark and Kourabiedes (a greek dessert).

my homemade shortbread - yummy!

Tasting Toronto said...

Shortbread seems to be a fave - it's the only one multiple people have said multiple times! We actually prefer to eat the shortbread dough rather than the cookie LOL

Gingerbread cookies. Stat holidays! (A different type of treat) Eggnog (or fakenog) with rum!

I like seeing what's traditional in other peoples' families.

All the homemade treats are so delicious. My favourites include nanaimo bars, buttertarts and the dreaded fruitcake (which I usually enjoy)!

@tastingtoronto Oysters & champagne!!

Terrymac said...

My favorite holiday treats are a must at this time of year: Rum Balls. But not just any rumballs, ones that are made in Vancouver bakery on Broadway! Christmas just isn't the same without these tasty morsels! (I have been able to closely approximate a duplication, and make them each year I am not able to get back to Van). These Rum Balls have a tasty sweet surprise in the center, that is what makes them soooooooo special!

They are just crying for some additional 'bibes' to accompany them!

my mom's Christmas fruitcake. Packed with dried fruits, maraschino cherries, walnuts and drenched with sherry at least once a week for 4 weeks. A must every holiday season. The store bought cake can't even compare to this fruity cake goodness
