Today we celebrate the treats that are a central part of the holiday season.
The stores are filled with sweet and salty snacks that will make their way to our table – Mandarin oranges, nuts, gourmet chocolates, Christmas candies, and the like. But, despite the tempting array of readily available delicacies, there is nothing more festive than spending a few hours preparing (and sampling) our own homemade treats to add to the mix. Yesterday, I started the process with a couple of our favourites.
There are a couple of more snacks that I will make before I move onto the more serious baking of butter tarts, cookies, slices, cheese cake and the like. So much tasty goodness to celebrate this month!
That’s it for today, folks. Take care and have a delicious day!
