Sugarplums!

The amounts in this recipe are very forgiving. You can omit the spices, or change them. For example, if you don't have coriander, you can use nutmeg.
You can use the dried fruits that you like best - many sugarplum recipes use raisins - we prefer craisins.

Allergic to nuts?
You can leave out the nuts totally, and only add as much honey as you need to help everything "stick" into balls. (You may not need any hoeny at all if omitting the nuts.

We roll these in coarse sugar prior to serving - but the sugar is not included in the calorie count.Submitted by CASERET

Rosca de la Reyes (Kings' Cake)

This is the cake that my family makes to celebrate Epiphany, also known as Three Kings' Day. If desired, you can frost it with a powdered sugar glaze, and decorate with candied fruits, to look like gems on a crown.Submitted by CASERET

Christmas Breakfast

Christmas Breakfast has been a tradition in my family as long as I can remember. I used to hate it when I was a kid, but now I can't even imagine Christmas without it. My mom would prepare it before us kids went to bed Christmas Eve, and in the morning between browsing through the presents Santa left and opening our stockings, my mom would place the baking dish in the oven to bake. To a kid early Christmas morning, it seemed forever when we'd actually eat. I guess 45 minutes must be eternity in kidland. Then when we'd sit down at the dining room table, still bundled in our pajamas, robe, and slippers, I'd pick at breakfast, eager to get back to opening our alluringly wrapped presents.

Many years later, though I'm older and enjoy watching my nephew open his gifts more than my own, Christmas Breakfast is still that part of Christmas that never changes. My brother will still complain about eating this breakfast, and I'll still pick at the sausage since it's never been my favorite meat. But we'll never stop baking it for all the Christmases left in my lifetime.

Since I've been an adult and hosted Christmas at my home, I've experimented with how to make the traditional casserole healthier. Most variations have turned not so great, but I've continued on the quest. This year I finally got the recipe right without sacrificing the hearty flavor. My sister-in-law's mom even asked for the recipe and everyone at the breakfast table ate more than one portion, even my husband who's a confessed non-lover of the breakfast.

So enjoy this recipe and may you have many blessed Christmases to come!Submitted by TERRIFICLYFIT

Apple Syrop

I make this for special occasions, but it can take the place of pancake syrop. Primarily I use it as the sweet sauce on Christmas pudding.Submitted by CASSIOEPIA

Smashed Potato Chocolates

When I was a child, my mother would make these chocolates for Christmas. Not her exact recipe but so far the closest (I think). I entered it to calculate the NI for the base (without the extract). She made different flavours with different extracts (orange, cherry, lemon) - Just don't forget the add the NI. She never flattened them, but left them as little balls. Some she even packed the mixture around a marischino cherry and then dipped in chocolate. We always looked forward to Christmas.Submitted by MOMMA_GRIZZ
