The week before Christmas, our house is filled with the most delicious smells of goodies being whipped up from morning 'til night. Waiting to finally eat these treats is equally as hard as waiting to open our presents.
They are (perhaps) much less tempting in digital form, but we'll let you decide for yourselves.. ;)
Our favorite Aunt Rosie's thumbprint cookies have become a more recent Christmas staple! Snag a recipe, here.
Struffoli, little fried dough balls smothered in honey, are synonymous with Christmas in our house! It's our Grandma's family recipe that's been passed down for generations (you know, kind of like feather sweaters). Topped off with sprinkles, we're lucky if any of these see Christmas day!
And finally, the pièce de résistance, our personal fave, Mommy's rice balls! Stuffed with melted mozzarella and locatelli cheese. We cannot take the deliciousness. We get a little Grinch-like with these, and hide some for ourselves to enjoy after all our company's gone! (Trust us, you would too!)
What will you be eating this holiday??
