On the second day before Christmas, PBW gave away:
Two novels of K-2
In comments to this post, name your favorite holiday cookie, dish or treat (or, if you can't choose only one, just drop your name in the hat) by midnight EST on Tuesday, December 25, 2007. I will draw two names at random from everyone who participates and send the winners signed hardcover copies of BioRescue and Afterburn (these first editions are now out of print, so they're hard to find.) This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

I like them all. :)ReplyDelete

Homemade hard candy...cherry flavored.ReplyDelete
One of my favorite holiday treats are "Hello Dollies" or some people call them 6 Layer bars. I almost never make these except at Christmas.ReplyDelete
You melt butter in the bottom of you baking pan mix in graham cracker crumbs to form your crust, then sprinkle pecans, chocolate chips and coconut over the graham crackers. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the whole thing and bake. Fantastic!!
My other favorite treat is fudge, and for some reason I only make this at Christmas too.
My grandmother makes a killer Taco salad. Not really Christmas-y, but it's my favorite.ReplyDelete
It used to be White Christmas, but I haven't had it in a while so maybe it's not. Right now, it'd be punch with cherries and pineapple in it.ReplyDelete
Chocolate, in any form.ReplyDelete
Well I like just about everything but if I had to pick a favorite holiday treat it would be pumpkin pie. Our family has an old recipe thats been handed down and is only supposed to be used on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It makes everyone look forward to dessert on those days. Merry Christmas to one and all.ReplyDelete
Totally has to be Christmas pudding. The best part is my husband doesn't like it, so I get it all to myself! hehehehReplyDelete
Piggies in blankets. It has to be them - little sausages wrapped in bacon? Win-win situation!ReplyDelete
My Finnish grandmother made prune tarts, shaped like stars, only at Christmas. They were rich, flaky, tender pastry around a dark, sweet center - so delicious.ReplyDelete
Marzipan - anything marzipan!ReplyDelete
dropping my name in the hat :)
Ooh.. fudge. Yep. Or... yanno, anything chocolate.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas, Lynn! My favorite is homemade cranberry sauce. No canned stuff for me :-)ReplyDelete
Cinnamon rolls. It doesn't sound like a holiday treat, but my family always makes cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning; it's a tradition by now.ReplyDelete
I already have them so don't include me. :)ReplyDelete
Fave holiday dish....ummmmmm....drool. Would have to be my mom's turkey and dressing, with mashed potatoes. Drool.
Mmmm, peanut butter fudge. And of course ham. Lots and lots of ham.ReplyDelete
I loce peanut butter bon bons and sugar cookies with all that icing.ReplyDelete
Eggnog Latte. It is the drink of heaven.ReplyDelete
My dad's side of the family has always served a dish called Swedish Pudding.ReplyDelete
It’s a desert affair made in a bowl with layers of apple sauce, white bread, fresh whipped cream, and cinnamon. (It’s a whole lot yummier than it sounds!)
When made the night before all the ingredients rub off on one another, and the result is delicious.
Happy Holidays, Everyone!
LIkewise dropping my name in the hat.ReplyDelete
Hi, this year my favorite are Snickerdoodles.ReplyDelete
I can't choose... too many good things to eat these days!!!ReplyDelete
Mince pies straight from the oven. :)ReplyDelete
I think these might be a UK only thing. I know I've had to explain what they are in the past, to non-UKians. But they're pastry pies filled with dried fruits(raisins, sultanas, somtimes apple) in a kind of jam, with little bits of suet, dusted with icing sugar. Scrumptious.
Pumpkin rolls. They are soooo good, and they are low cal. 'Course you wouldn't know it at all.ReplyDelete
They're sorta like yule logs, only pumpkin-flavored with cream cheese filling.
My favorite is butter tarts. Soooo good!ReplyDelete
I don't want to be put in the draw, though. I already have hard covers of both books and I don't want to take away from those who don't.
In my father's family, we traditionally have golabki (Polish cabbage rolls) for Christmas. It's a tradition I miss now that I'm living in Cajun country, where my father-in-law insists on pork loin for Christmas. *sigh*ReplyDelete
Warm chocolate chip cookies and a mug of egg nog, snuggled up on the couch with your significant other, watching a good movie.ReplyDelete
What better way to spend a cozy Christmas evening?
My favorite holiday treat are gingerbread cookies - yum yum!ReplyDelete
Either something white chocolate and peppermint or homemade bread pudding!ReplyDelete
Sugar Cookies made with mexican vanilla. The best.ReplyDelete
My mom always makes a wonderful Christmas dinner so whatever she makes that day is my favorite! Count me in.ReplyDelete
I'm definitely a big cookie person, and sad that this is my first year far from home because now I can't go raid my mother's house for hers... so I made sugar cookies with royal icing (half of which are things like cats and turtles because my cookie cutters are not very Christmas-y) and today I'm going to be doing pecan balls covered in powdered sugar.ReplyDelete
Good, old fashioned sugar cookies are my favorite.ReplyDelete
Fudge is my favorite holiday treat.ReplyDelete
My absolute favorite cookies are my sister's Pecan Pie Bar cookies.ReplyDelete
My deceased mil made the most fantastic crescent shaped nut cookies.ReplyDelete
I love apple pie...it doesn't matter the holiday or season, I'd eat it in a heartbeat ;)ReplyDelete
Egg custard with cinnamon topping!!ReplyDelete
Warm chocolate chip cookies and a mug of eggnog, being snuggled next to your significant other, and watching a good movie.ReplyDelete
What else could you want on a cold Christmas evening, (or any other time for that matter!)
sugar cookies and sugar icing.ReplyDelete
Coral Island cookies.ReplyDelete
Stollen-a German fruit bread. Love it. : )ReplyDelete
(Don't enter me for the drawing)ReplyDelete
I love peanut brittle and peanut butter bon bons. Merry Christmas, PBW! I hope you and your family have a great holiday!
Cowboy cookies. I found the recipe at cookingbytheseatofmypants.com and absolutely LOVED THEM!!!!ReplyDelete
Also my grandma's peanut butter cookies. Christmas isn't Christmas without them.
Candy cookies which are a mixture of rolled oats, brown sugar and butter. Sinfully delicious and now off my diet sadly. Oh well.ReplyDelete
Toffee bars - chocolate topped addictive bars of sin. Recipe is on MY blog :)ReplyDelete
Spekulatius - a form of ginger bread; one of the many we have here.ReplyDelete
Mom makes pumpkin pie or apple pie or cherry pie depending on her mood. I love them all.ReplyDelete
my mother in law's pecan tassies :DReplyDelete
Merry Christmas, Lynn!
My favorite are my grandmother's anise cookies, that I haven't had any of since Christmas '97... and though we finally found a copy of her recipe a few years ago, I still haven't managed to get them to turn out quite like hers. (And no, her recipe isn't online anywhere... and isn't anything like any others I found while searching for a good replacement during those no-recipe years.)ReplyDelete
My favorite treat is my mom's sausage balls. They are a nice break from all the sweet offerings of the holiday season.ReplyDelete
I like best the chocolate cream pie recipe I have.ReplyDelete
My favorite holiday cookies are Russian Teacakes (I've also seen them called Mexican Wedding Cookies).ReplyDelete
