It just wouldn't In* Christinas without Christmas cookies, candies and sweets,
and as we make our own Christmas gift list, we note friends and relatives
(and possibly some shut-ins) who would particularly appreciate a package
made up of these goodies. This also reminds us that it is time to check our
supply of homemade jams, jellies and relishes for we ll want to include
these among our gifts. Ground Hazel Nut Loaf Coke and Holiday bruit
Pudding are two excellent "prepare ahead and freeze gilt foods
With Christmas cookies, as with holiday cakes and breads, we all have
our favorites Some of these, such as Shortbread, ihmh! making early in ^
order to allow time for ripening. Others such as t hristmas Hoots and Maca
roon Wreaths can lie made quickly whenever you have time. Then there
arc always certain cookies that stem to create a sensation and in that group
are Thumb Prints which come up with a new version most every year. The
one shown here is different in that the depression is hill'd with a chocolate
filling. Spritz cookies are a must in every home at Christmas.
Candies can he made later as they will not ktn'p so well, but we must
not forget to check our jam cupboards for there’s still time to make some
Apple Relish, some Strawberry Date Jam (with frozen strawberries and
pitted dates), or even some Apricot Jam for we can always use dried apricots
and powdered or liquid pectin for this. *
With a start now on the sweets for our Christmas needs, we’ll find it easy
to fill in the additional cookies and candies we need for last-minute touches.
