  1. My grandmother would make a Christmas cookie called Biscochito. I also love the luminaria tradition in thesouthwes

  2. Lemon cheesecake and frosted sugar cookies are my favorites. Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Yeat.

  3. My favorite dessert is my grandmother’s recipe for Butterscotch Meringue Pie. I make it every Christmas & for my Dad on his birthday & Father’s Day. 🙂

  4. I would love to win the Little Treats bundle. It is so versatile. I can already imagine the many ways that I can use this set.

  5. During the holidays, I love a cranberry walnut tart because it’s so festive and we always have cream puffs….who doesn’t love that little bit of heaven!

  6. My favorite Christmas dessert is cut out cookies. I have my mom’s recipe that I make, even though her always seemed to taste better. 🙂

  7. Since I am of Norwegian decent, I always like to make sandbakkels. My grandma taught us girls how to press them in the tins when we were young. I am fortunate enough to still have my grandma’s sandbakkel tins so I can continue making them every Christmas.

  8. Our niece makes Christmas pretzels dipped in white chocolate with an M & M decoration. I really love the sweet and salty deliciousness! Merry Christmas to you and your family (two legged and four legged) ! <3

  9. My favorite dessert is my mom’s lemon meringue pie. I have never been able to replicate hers and I have fond memories of her making it for special occassions. Thank you for the chance to win this awesome gift.

  10. It is hard to pick just one. I guess it would be shortbread cookies or any kind of cookies. Wishing you a Happy New Year!

  11. My favorite dessert during the holidays is all the Christmas cookies and candies! My diet will be starting soon! Hee hee!

  12. Ginger bread cookies. Takes me back to when I was a child. The aroma of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg baking in the oven. Mmmm

  13. My favorite dessert for any occasion is Carrot Cake! I make it the healthy way with carrots, pineapple, applesauce, walnuts, raisins, unsweetened coconut and a 5-grain flour that I grind myself. It’s so yummy and always requested~

  14. The sugar cookies that I began making with my grandma as a small child in the 60’s & still make every Christmas time!

  15. My favorite Is Crack Candy, it is so easy to make and everyone loves it. I have not made it for several years, as I can’t stop eating it.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a better 2021. Thank you for the opportunity to win the Little Treats bundle.

  16. My favorite Christmas treat is homemade carmels. We make them every year for neighbors and friends.

  17. I think our favorite treat at Christmas is my candy cane cookies-red and white dough rolled separately into short logs, then twisted together and formed into candy cane shapes. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candy on top after baking-YUM! My mother gave me the recipe-we made them as kids & now I make them with my grandchildren 🙂

  18. I make an amazing apricot-pineapple strudel around the holidays every year. People beg for it every year.

  19. Merry Christmas! So many delicious Christmas goodies…Melting Moments Cookies are a #1 favorite of mine.

  20. My favorite dessert is Pecan Pir Gingered Cheesecake! I made it for a customer nany years ago and it has been my favorite ever since!

  21. I really like ALL cookies, but my favorite are the little tea cakes my mother used to make – loaded with pecans and rolled in powdered sugar!

  22. I love making all kinds of cookies. I give them as gifts for family and friends; but as a special treat for Christmas dinner, I love my Cranberry Orange Cheesecake. I did not make this year, as no one to enjoy it but my husband and I, and that is a lot of cheesecake for 2 people.
    Merry Christmas and a Joyous, safe New Year to all.

  23. My favorite is Snickerdoodles cookies Thank you for chance to win
    Merry Christmas and A Very Happy New Year

  24. Merry Christmas Mary! My favorite Christmas favorite is Mexican Bunuelos. It’s a crispy round dough sprinkled with sugar and ground cinnamon. It is fried so I enjoy them during the holidays only and look forward to them the following Christmas.

  25. I know this is going to sound strange because must people don’t care for fruit cake. But my grandmother could make the very best fruit cake, with lots of Black walnuts. I’m 67 years young and I can still remember how it smelled so good and I didn’t want to wait till Christmas for a slice. She would make it early in the season and pour a grape wine and slice apples over the cake. One month before Christmas. The smell would be wonderful.

  26. Happy Holidays. My favorite dessert is “White Mice”, a German cookie but similar to Mexican Wedding Cake cookies. I only make them at Christmas. My favorite candy is Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark!!

  27. My family looks forward to me making Italian Pizzellas on the holidays. The recipe is from my husband’s Grandmother and I always have fond thought of her when I make them! My boys have grown up with them and now their wives look forward to them. They’ve become one of our family traditions

  28. My favorite cookie are my chocolate shortbread logs and favorite candy is Ghirardelli peppermint bark, HANDS DOWN!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS

  29. Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2921
    My favourite dessert is a Nanaimo bar. So good

  30. My favorite holiday candy treat is chocolate fudge — plain or with nuts! Anything is happily consumed!

  31. Growing up I always loved my grandma’s Divinity!
    Especially the pale pink peppermint.
    Now everyone – including me – loves my microwave caramel corn! It’s made in a paper bag! This year my boyfriend and I made 8 batches!

  32. My favorite Holiday treat is a fresh rosette. The lady who made these at church for our annual Christmas cookie sale died this December and her family made them in her honor this year. They were almost as good as Joyce’s, but still not exactly how hers turned out. We all miss Joyce so much, but her legacy will remain.

  33. I have 2 favorite Christmas desserts that are now reminders of my Mama and Daddy. For the last few years until my Mama passed away October 2019, I helped her make her fabulous nut cakes. She always made 2 to share with my siblings and to have some for herself and Daddy. I’m trying to continue the tradition. My Daddy’s favorite cake until he passed away in 2014 for me to bake at Christmas was an Italian Cream Cake which I also love. I didn’t bake it this year because of family not being able to be together this year because of COVID.

  34. My favorite Christmas dessert is a Happy Birthday, Jesus! cake–and singing Happy Birthday to Him. Favorite holiday cookie is a Mexican Wedding cookie (or any of its variant names!). Favorite candy is anything chocolate! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and that 2021 is much, much better.

  35. I love the classic sugar cookies this time of year. Thank you for all of your inspiration all year long.

  36. I love the chocolate thumbprint cookies! My mother starting making them when I was a child. She isn’t here to make them anymore, but whenever I chance upon a thumbprint cookie the nostalgia washes over me.

  37. Our family calls them “Pink and White” icing cookies. I think they are also called Italian Wedding cookies. They are similar to Starbucks Almond Lemon cookies.
    Have a blessed day.

  38. Oh, my goodness! From pecan pie to my shortbread to Schwan’s peppermint ice cream (and everything in between!), how do you choose?! My problem is, I don’t! Happy New Year, Mary, 2021 HAS to be an improvement, right? Thank you!!

  39. My favorite Christmas Candy is Milk Chocolate Peppermint Bark. It tastes just like hot cocoa with peppermint in it! YUM!!! ? Hope your Christmas was a Merry one, and that you and yours will be blessed with a healthy, happy, and bright New Year!!! We spent our Christmas with a dying family member, who has more than likely just enjoyed her last family Christmas. It was a smaller, sadder family Christmas as she and her sister just lost their dad about 1 1/2 weeks prior. Very bittersweet…Thank you for this bit of fun, Mary! ?

  40. My favorite Christmas cookie is a mint meltaway – a little chocolate cookie “frosted” with an Andes mint candy.

  41. Hello – I hope your day was relaxing. My favorite Christmas treat is peppermint bark. My children and now my grandchildren help to make it, smashing peppermints and all. They like to give as gifted to their relatives and neighbors.

  42. I just cant answer this question with one, but if I have to it would be Russian Tea Cakes. My great aunt Janet’s recipe. My husband rolls them in so much powdered sugar. They melt in your mouth.

  43. My favorite Christmas dessert is a delicious family recipe of Fig pudding w/brady sauce. My grandmother made it each Christmas for years. As a young child I would refuse to eat it & then one year I finally tried it & LOVED IT!! My brother was a little disappointed that I had a change in heart & liked it because he had to share the left overs with me 🙂 Grandma passed the recipe to me & my brother & we have continued the tradition of making it as our Christmas dessert

  44. I love gingerbread cookies and the tradition of making peanut brittle with family. Thanks for the opportunity to win this cute bundle

  45. My mother-in-law made a delicious bark with white chocolate, pretzels, and peanuts, just the right mix of savory and sweet.

  46. My favorite Christmas dessert is the peanut butter pie. I love making them for my friends and family. It makes my heart warm!!

  47. Our family favorite, especially with the grandkids is my Raspberry Jello Salad with an extra creamy topping and extra goodness in the middle.

  48. The kids love making cookies with my Mother. An all time favorite is our jam bars. What’s not to love about a few sticks of butter and a perfect mix of apricot and blackberry jam!

  49. Hi Mary! Merry Christmas and a wishful Happy New Year!! My favorite treat during this time of year is a family tradition called German Stolen. My Mom has made it my entire life and it always reminds me of her in the kitchen with a Christmas style apron. My sisters and I would help spread the butter and cinnamon/sugar mixture then twist, twist, twist the bread!

  50. Happy Holidays to you. Our favorite thing to make for the holidays are buckeys. They are made with peanut butter . The grandchildren love them.

  51. My mother makes alllllll kinds of cookies for Christmas, but my favorites are the snowball cookies (which I think are pretty much like the Italian wedding cookies). I could, and usually do, eat my weight in them.

    Hope everyone had a fantastic, if somewhat odd, and healthy Christmas!!! Thanks, Mary, for the chance to win a treat.

  52. Custard pie is my favorite and makes any occasion special. I also love sampling all types of homemsde cookies because I love sweets! I also love reading your blog posts and tutorials, Mary. Happy holidays to everyone.

  53. I would have to say a big dish of my Mother’s Baked Warm Apple Dumplings with a Scoop of Vanilla Ice Cr.eam. Mother is no longer with us but the taste and smell of that dessert still lingers with me today at sge 76

  54. My favorite holiday dessert is Barm Brack Irish tea fruit cake. It’s delicious and reminds me of my dad.

  55. Merry Christmas! My favorite holiday dessert are sugar cookie cut outs using my mom’s recipe. Brings back happy memories!

  57. Merry Christmas and thank you for all your great ideas year round that you share! My favorite ..humm to hard to choose just one- holiday cookies and see candies!

  58. Merry Christmas! My favorite is Blizzard Mix. It is a mixture of Chex, Cheerios, peanuts, pretzel sticks, and caramels covered with melted almond bark.

  59. My favorite Christmas dessert is date filled cookies. A family favorite my mom made when I was young and now I make.

  60. I love candies of all kinds but my all time favorite for Christmas is Chocolate Imps. I got this recipe from my Mom who also loves these and is quite certain they are what gave her diabetes. Delicious!! Merry Christmas!!!

  61. I don’t have just one favorite cookie. To start I like thumb prints with a star center, Russian tea cakes, peppermint sandwich cookie, coconut islands, just to name a few.

  62. My Mom’s homemade chocolate peanutbutter candy. There’s nothing like what Mom makes!

  63. Gingerbread cookies. And I really should/could make them throughout the year! So good with coffee in the morning and bourbon in the evening!

  64. My absolute favorite is an oatmeal cookie with a date filling.
    Not your typical Christmas cookie but for some reason my mom only made them at that time.

  65. Amoretto Bread pudding has been a long tradition in our family it is yummo. There has not been one time that I have served this that people do not ask for the recipe.

  66. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! My favorite Christmas dessert is iced sugar cookies.

  67. Oh, there are so many special, once a year goodies I make. Probably my favorite is Krumkake, a Norwegian cookie cooked on a waffle like iron and rolled up on a tube. It can be cream filled—-or not! Tasty!

  68. Magic cookie bars, aka Hello Dollies. For the holidays, I replace the chocolate chips with plain M&Ms, so at Christmas you see red and green bleed through. I make them all year long and am asked to bring them to every function I go to!

  69. Belated Merry Christmas and hope you and your family are blessed in the coming year. My favorite is fudge with black walnuts. Thank you for the chance to win a great prize.

  70. There are so many guilty pleasures when it comes to holiday sweets! How do I pick just one? 😉 Hmmm… I love shortbread cookies. I found a simple recipe but it makes a ton of cookies!

    • I love shortbread cookies, too. Please send me your recipe. Would love to make a batch.

  71. My favorite holiday dessert was my grandmother’s suet Pudding with sweet sauce.

  79. Merry Christmas! If I could choose only one sweet treat, I think it would be chocolate covered nuts, especially macadamia nuts, peanuts, or pecans. A candy shop where I used to live makes them fresh with the best salty-sweet chocolate, to die for!

  80. Merry Christmas Mary to you and your family. Your question was tough as there are many favorites, but I think I have to go with our Candy Cane Truffles. They are a family must have every holiday season! 🙂 It’s hard to eat just one.

  100. My favorite cookies: Norwegian KrumKake cookies made with 4 ingredients: melted butter, eggs, flour and sugar and baked in krumkake iron:-) My Grandma Knutson immigrated to Oregon in 1910 and brought her family recipe with her that all the family has shared and made for over a hundred years:-)

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, with many Blessings

It’s a fun tradition each year.

  117. Raspberry jello treat. It’s made in a bundt pan with fresh or frozen raspberries, Cool Whip, and believe it or not, a pretzel crust. I made it for our family for many years. Our daughter carries on the tradition.

  118. Merry Christmas to you and your family. My favorite Christmas dessert is chocolate eclair dessert. I have not made it in many years as it was one our sons favorite too. He passed away seven years ago and I stopped making it until this year. There may have been a few salty tears in it.

  120. Rum Balls. Coated with powdered sugar. Melts in your mouth and warms up your tummy! Yummy!

  121. I only make Russian Tea cookies at Christmas. I don’t know why because I really like them.

  122. For many years I have made fudge and pralines for my neighbors. When I have moved, I have found that’s a nice way to further your relationship with the people who live around you – and a great surprise for those who don’t know you are coming with goodies!

  123. Usually too stuffed to eat dessert right after the meal, but chess pie and coffee are my favorite after an hour or so. Yummmmm.

  124. My favorite are Christmas cookies. I have been making them since I was 5 years old and I am now 77. I have tought my children and my grandchildren with recipies that go way back and those from more current cookbooks. Unfortunately with the covid 19 issue, it is just me in my kitchen this year and a greatly reduced number of batches as there is only my husband and myself to eat them. I still made some for friends but my family is hours and hours away. Even with that, I did get cookies from my daughter who lives in Iowa and I am in Delaware, in my box that was 9 days late but made it for Christmas eve. Thankfully the cookies were still edible. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  125. Merry Christmas and a Happy, Better 2021! My favorite Christmas dessert is Pecan Pie.

  126. My favorite Christmas treat has to be my mom’s Gingerbread. She adds red hots to the shapes which give the cookies a little extra heat. A close second favorite is of course See’s Candy! Hope you are having a wonderful celebration surrounded by family, friends, love & laughter!

  127. Merry Christmas!! Today I have cheese cake with strawberry topping. So, that’s my favorite today!!!

  128. My favorite cookie is called Sandies! All butter and pecans then rolled in power sugar…mmm

  129. Merry Christmas Mary! My favorite dessert hands down is a pumpkin roll. My daughter usually makes them for the family dinners. Small Christmas this year so I didn’t get one, looking forward to one in 2021!

  130. I have begun to gift cards that I have made to people out of my area by donating and sending birthday cards, Christmas cards, get well cards, etc. to senior centers. I don’t have a favorite holiday, just try to enjoy them all.

  131. Peppermint Bark is my favorite treat at Christmas. I enjoy it with coffee and Baileys Cream while watching Hallmark movies.

  132. My favorite is the peanut blossom cookie. A peanut butter cookie with a chocolate star or chocolate kiss in the center. I made three batches of them this year.

  134. My favorite holiday candy is toffee with chocolate and nuts melted on top! Not good for your teeth, but I LOVE it! Thanks for asking!!!

  135. Merry Christmas! We love to make a frozen ice cream dessert (chocolate cookie layer, coffee ice cream layer, crushed heath bars, vanilla ice cream layer, topped with home made hot fudge. I got the recipe years ago from my mother-in-law – and the hot fudge recipe from her mother. It’s a tradition now.

  136. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! My favorite Christmas treat is my mother’s homemade caramels that she used to make every year and we would (all 5 of us kids) help her wrap them in wax paper pieces of paper. Mmmmmm, delicious! They also freeze very well too.

  137. My favorite Christmas dessert is an iced sugar cookie. The prettier the better which means it is not one I’ve made as mine never come out pretty.

  138. My great grandfather was a candy maker back in the day. Every year he sent a big box, of his secret recipe, of carmeled popcorn to each family, along with other sweets he would make.
    Every Christmas, all of us grand kids would sit and wait till our family box would arrive. That was and is my favorite Christmas treat.

  139. Merry Christmas. What a wonderful gift you are offering. How do you pick ONE dessert? Almond Joy cookies, Coconut layer cake filled with Raspberry filling, Pecan Pie–I love it all.

  140. I love all things peppermint. Hot chocolate, cookies, ice cream, chocolate, etc. it’s just the best. It smells good and is always delicious!

  141. My favorite holiday dessert….Christmas sugar cookies!! Thank you Mary for the blog candy & your daily posts! Merry Christmas!
