Christmas/Holiday Recipes?

Ok we all have those recipes that it seems like no one else has ever had.
What are some of your tradional Christmas recipes, that, to you, scream Christmas/Hanukkah??
Please post recipes if you feel like it as well.

For me it is Dream Cake, Gumdrop Cake and Dutch Shortbread.

Gumdrop Cake
Gumdrop Cake Recipe - Allrecipes.com
We have been unable to find my grandmother's recipe, but this is close. I add more gumdrops, and nuts. You should also let it age a week or so.

Dream Cake- This is one I haven't been able to find on the internet and is from my Great Grandmother
Crust:
• 1 ¼ Cups Flour
• ½ Cup Butter
• ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
Mix all ingredients together and press into a 9 inch square pan, bake 10 minutes at 350F
Topping:
• 1/3 Cup Butter
• 1 Cup Brown Sugar
• 2 Tablespoons Cream(10% or 18%)
• 2 Eggs Beaten
• 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
• 1 Tablespoon Flour
• 1 Cup Raisins
Mix all ingredients together well and pour on top of baked pastry. Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes or until browned and set

Dutch Shortbread
Dough:
• 4 Cups Flour
• 2 Cups White Sugar
• 2 Eggs (slightly beaten)
• 2 Cups Butter (softened)
Almond Filling:
• 8 Ounces Ground Almonds
• 1 ½ Cups White Sugar
• 1 Teaspoon Grated Lemon Rind
• 1 Egg
Mix all ingredients together and set aside.

Knead dough together and divide in half. Lightly grease and flour a 9x12 inch pan. Pat half of dough in bottom of pan. Put almond filling on top. Roll out other half of dough & place on top. Brush with egg wash and top with sliced almonds.
Bake @ 350F approximately 45 minutes or until golden.

Ham is a big holiday favorite in our house, this is always the request...

MAPLE BAKED HAM WITH SPICED APPLES AND PEARS


Glaze:
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup Maple Syrup
1/2 cup dark molasses
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup water

1 Spiral cut ham, 8-10lbs
1 1/2 pounds (about 4) Granny Smith apples
1 1/2 pounds (about 4) Bartlett pears
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


Line a shallow baking pan with parchment or waxed paper. Place ham on a wire rack in the baking pan.


In a mixing bowl, combine all of the glaze ingredients together except for the mustard and water. Mix well. In a small bowl, dissolve the mustard in the water, then add to the spice mixture. Blend well.


Brush the entire ham with the glaze, coating it evenly. Wash, core, and halve the fruit. Place all around the ham. Baste the ham a second time and baste the fruit with the glaze. Bake for a total time of 1h 30m, basting every 15-20m or as you see fit. Remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. Serve the apples and pears on a platter with the ham. Serve everything warm or at room temperature.

I just do Christmas cookies when the family all gets together, and the typical pumpkin bread and cranberry bread. Even though my kids are grown I force them to still decorate sugar cookies, made from scratch, rolled out etc. My son always does something tongue in cheek- like the year all the ones he cut out were with the black cat Halloween cookie cutter!

*That gumdrop cake looks suspiciously fruitcake like? Ha ha! The shortbread looks delish!

I'm not a big baker, but the SO needs snacks for work. I made a couple different recipes this season, but with end of terms I haven't had much time. Until now... So I'll give you a few Christmas-y ones that I used, and tonight, after I've done more baking, I'll give you more gooders!

The first are Cream Cheese Cupcakes which are absolutely amaaazing. They stay so moist for so long. I know a lot of people do these year round, but to me they scream rich and decadent Christmas dessert. Plus you could add some sort of Christmas flare if you're creative enough.

Inside:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips

Cupcakes:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in the sugar, egg and salt until smooth. Fold in chocolate and peanut butter chips; set aside.

For cupcakes, in a large bowl, beat the sugar, water, oil, vinegar and vanilla until well blended. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture and mix well.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with batter. Top each with about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
(Recipe from Taste of Home)

This is a Soft Christmas Cookie recipe. They aren't crunchy like normal sugar cookies, which is why we like them so much.

Ingredients:
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients until fully absorbed. Cover dough, and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a clean floured surface, roll out small portions of chilled dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are barely brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
(Recipe from AllRecipes)

I really associated Hershey Kisses with the season, so I really like these Peanut Butter Cookies for that reason. In addition to this, it's made with no flour. Bonus!

Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
24 milk chocolate kisses

Directions:

In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until blended.

Roll into 1-1/4-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked.

Immediately press one chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

You can't post chocolate cake with peppermint frosting without posting the frosting recipe!

Ask and you shall receive

3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
(for pepermint replace with 1/2-3/4 tsp pepermint extract)
1.5 lbs or 3/4 of 2 lb bag of powdered sugar (i honestly never measure I just pour most of the bag )
3-6 tbsp milk (3 is very! thick I tend to use 4 ot 5 depending on what it's for, 4 for the cake)

and mix/add dyes (i did green this time)

keep refrigerated if not serving right away, the frosting will otherwise get soft and the looser you make it the more it will visibly look a little seperated when it is completely room temp. for longer than a few hours.

I crushed up pepermint sticks and sprinkled them on top of the cake too, sorry no picture

Fun to make that's for sure lol

Recipe

part one

1 cup flour (sift first, then measure) ...honestly i'm bad, i never sift anything lol, so it's up to you
1/4 lb butter (cut into flour with pastry cutter)
1 tbsp cold water (sprinkle into flour mixture)

mix (like pie crust) till forms ball - roll into rope and flatten to aprox. 1/4" on greased cookie sheet

part two

bring to boil 1/4 butter
1 cup water

add 1 cup flour and beat well with wooden spoon and remove from heat at once
add three eggs - must beat gradually or it will not be good
beat well with a wooden spoon after each egg has been added
add 1/2 tspn vanilla and mix once more

spread over crust on cookie sheet

bake 30 minutes at 400'

Cool and frost with

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
milk (to spreadability, roughly 4 tsp)

Sprinkle with nuts if desired.

---------------------------------------------------------

It may sound daunting but it's actually pretty easy, I messed it up a bit the first time with the result being normal It's a luncheon favorite for my mom and her friends just like it was for my grandma.

I'd like to know more about the Amish cookies, and butterhorns.
Are you hungarian? My old boss was hungarian and made this delicious custard and puff pastry dessert- but I have no idea what it was.

not that I know of but my grandmother collected recipes through church like a crazy person!

AMISH COOKIES

1 cup sugar
1 cup pwdr. sugar
1 cup butter or 1/2 cup oleo/crisco aa shortening
1 cup veg. oil
2 eggs
4.5 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Mix in order given, roll in balls, flatten with fork and sprinkle with sugar (they do not spread a ton when baking)

bake at 350' for 10 min or until lightly browned.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hungarian Butterhorns

*bear with me, translating 30+ year old hand written cursive is hard lol, check for edits*

crumble (like making a pie crust)
1 pkg yeast
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter

add:
3 beaten egg yolks
1/2 cup sour ceam
1 tsp vanilla

mix thouroughly, divide dough into 6 parts, roll each part like pie crust (with powedered sugar on board instead of flour), divide into 6-8 wedges.
Spread one tsp of filling on each wedge, roll like butterhorns/crecents. BAKE 350' FOR 20 MIN or lightly toasted/browned and then we roll them in powdered sugar while still warm.

FILLING

3 beaten egg whites
1 cup sugar
fold in 1 cup chopped nuts (we usually use walnuts or you can make it with mini m&m's, mini choc chips (regular or white choc.) users choice we've made several diff kinds!


ENJOY!

Hmm the recipe looks just like gingerbread
here is one recipe i found online
Pepparkakor I Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Here is another one
Pepparkakor
(yields at least 10 dozen cookies, if using a medium sized cutter)

2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cardamom
½ tsp allspice
1 tsp of salt (omit if using salted butter)
1 tbsp baking soda

300 gram unsalted butter (I used salted, like I normally do, and it was fine.)
250 gram regular white sugar
150 gram brown sugar

1 small egg
the peel of one lemon
300 ml golden syrup
300 ml heavy cream
1100 gram flour

Day one: Sift the spices and the baking soda in a bowl. Mix butter with the two sugars, add the spices and the egg. Add lemon, golden syrup, cream and finally flour. This will be fairly sticky – don’t worry! Stick it in the fridge overnight, but don’t do what I did and just put the whole mixer bowl in there. It becomes very, very, very solid. Instead, make a log or at least flat discs, wrap in plastic, and chill. (I broke my favorite wooden spoon trying to get the dough out of the bowl on day two. Not fun.)

Day two. Take out small pieces of dough at a time, and roll out on a floured workface. I don’t need to teach you how to cut out cookies. (But do use a lot of flour, you don’t want to have to scrape these off the counter top. It doesn’t impair the flavor much.)

Bake in the oven, at 180 degrees Celsius (350 F) for 7-8 minutes, depending on size. I ended up making a lot of cat shapes (how surprising!) but also a lot of smaller stars and hearts.

OK, try to restrain your gag reflexes, but this is something we had at Christmas every year as children. My Dad was from a very Italian family, and that's were this came from. We call them Anchovy Donuts. They're basically fried dough with anchovies inside. So good!!!

Ooohhh, Sam, that butterhorn recipe sounds like my sister's kiffel (kippel) recipe. She lost it when she moved, and my copy disappeared ages ago. I might have to make some (if I can ever convince myself I have some energy).

LOL that's funny.
The cake does look very much alike, but the taste is about a million times better. In place of all of the rind or whatever all that dried fruit stuff is called, is gumdrops. It still has nuts and raisins though- but it's delicious.

Another recipe- not sure where it came from, but is another delicious one and oh so simple.

Rollie Pollies
you take the trimmings from your pie crust(or make pie crust just for this), roll them out into a rectangle-ish shape about 1/4" thick. Spread evenly with butter and generously sprinkle with brown sugar.
Roll and cut into pinwheels. Havent had them in forever! bake until golden probably around 350

Thanks but I was hoping for one someone has already tried. I'm having no luck finding a good one that actually tastes good.

We make do-dads with extra pie crust. Just roll out the scraps, cut into pieces, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and bake them until they are crisp and golden brown around the edges.

Rocky Road Fudge (Very Easy)

1 cup butterscotch morsels
1 cup choc chip semi sweet morsels
1 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (Eagle)

Combine & cook over low heat. (use a thick pan, I use my pressure cooker)

Add 2 cups min marshmellows
Add 2 cups chopped nuts

Spread in 8x8 pan. I spray mine with mazola spray, but I am sure pam would work too.

My family likes the marshmellow pieces in the fudge so I don't stir quite as much. If you like the "look" of swirled rocky road, just stir until the marshmellow melt more.

A co-worker always brought these cookies into work and I LOVED them. Since I no longer work there, I asked her for the recipe and made them last year. Now all my new co-workers love me for bringing in these tasty cookies!

Almond Glazed Sugar Cookies | Land O'Lakes


Also, it wouldn't be Christmas without Peanut Butter Blossoms. Someone posted a similar recipe, but this one's a little different.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Sift:
1 3/4 Cups Shortening
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Cream:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Add to the cream mixture:
1 egg
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Mix wet and dry ingredients thoroughly. Form a tsp of dough into a small ball. Roll in sugar. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet, 375 degrees for 8 min. Remove from oven and place a chocolate candy kiss (I use Brachs chocolate stars to make them a little fancier) on top of each cookie. Press into cookie so they crack. Bake 2 min longer.
