3 Yummy Christmas Recipes



Today I’m sharing three favorite recipes, good any time of the year, but especially enjoyed at Christmas.

A family favorite appetizer for Christmas is Hot Virginia Dip.  My mom has made this for every Christmas party she’s hosted for as long as I can remember.  If you take this to a party, plan on your dish coming home clean.


Sugar Coated Pecans make a wonderful gift.  I made these for gifts for teacher friends and they were well received.  I haven’t made them since and I think this will be the year to make them again, perhaps as gifts for our neighbors.


My friend Suzanne introduced me to Bischochitos and it was love at first bite.  This cookie’s unique flavor comes from anise and brandy.  You won’t be able to stop after eating  just one.


If you like to make cut-out sugar cookies, try Grandma’s Special Tea Cookies.  My grandmother made these every year for us, rolled paper thin and coated with a thin layer of icing.  I can’t get them rolled out as thin as she did but they are still good.


The eating is so good at Christmas!  What treat are you looking forward to eating?

  1. Hi Paula! You’ve had some great posts recently! I haven’t made time to comment on every one but I’m thinking about you, and hoping you’ve got the house back in order somewhat after the damage you had earlier this year. It sounds like you’re making the most of the holiday season! I am anxious to try your Hot Virginia Dip recipe, but the link to the recipe isn’t working. Can you help?

    Take care!

    1. Thanks for letting me know that my links weren’t working. They should be fine now. Hot VA Dip is SO good and would be perfect for one of your parties.

  2. Paula, When I click on your recipes, I get an “Oops” message on Google Chrome which then suggests I search on Google. That takes me to a long list of hits like a regular Google search, but then I can see your recipe. Are others experiencing this? I wonder what the conflict is. Anyway, your recipes are always good, and I’d like to try those cookies. My favorite treats at Christmas are oatmeal-chocolate chip drop cookies and homemade Cracker Jack (but sorry, we don’t include prizes).
