Some of the recipes here sound really good!

My family actually likes something really simple, cream puffs with a homemade chocolate sauce dribbled over them. Kind of like chocolate eclairs. As a test I just asked my 16 year old dd what we should have this year, and she perked right up and said, "Cream puffs! Please! Oh yumm...." LOL

Here are some favorite desserts from the South: pecan pie, coconut cake and ambrosia. I also like divinity, fruit cake and homemade fudge.

I was planning to try pannetone french toast on Christmas morning. Found the recipe on the Food Network web site from the Everyday Italian show. But now I'm thinking about the bread puddding...sounds so good. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Oh, my god. The other night I was watching Christmas takes from old Saturday Night Live episodes. One was two women from the "Delicious Dish" interviewing a character Peter Schweaty (played by Alec Baldwin) the owner of "Seasons Eatings" famous for his Christmas balls. The women were raving about his Schweaty balls. I was rolling on the floor. So funny.

Hah! I just found it on You Tube:

Besides my cookies, I also make a cherry pie, a pumpkin pie, and a pecan pie. If I don't make all three, I hear about it! And, I can't cheat, and use the frozen ones, either. They must all be from scratch, right down to the crust.

On Christmas Eve we always have Cheesecake with cherry topping. This year I found a new recipe for a peppermint ice cream layer cake that I think is going to become a holiday favorite. It is really easy: You make a two layer round chocolate cake, put the ice cream in the middle of the layers, and top with cool whip and crushed peppermint. It is pretty and tastes good too!
