Pre-holiday sweets

I am not ready for Christmas. I don’t intend to be ready for Christmas until Dec 22nd at the earliest. I am, however, craving Christmas goodies, particularly cookies. The following are on my to-make list between now, or as soon as it cools off, and mid-January:

  • pumpkin pie (family recipe)
  • pecan pie (Emeril’s recipe, although Renee insists I need to try hers)
  • candy cane cookies (one of my favorites!)
  • Christmas tree cookies (Greta’s recipe)
  • pumpkin roll (family recipe)
  • brandied pecans (Jenny Wible’s recipe)
  • chocolate kissed macaroons
  • banana bread (Jan’s recipe)

And that’s just off the top of my head. I’m relying on friends and coworkers to assist with the consumption — I can’t run enough to burn it all off.
