Food, Glorious Food!

One of the best things about Christmas is the food. Glorious food. Wonderful food.

Food that we don't have any other time of the year.

Snickerdoodles, fudge, Turkish Delight.

But over the years, I find my self getting into a sort of a rut.  Same old cookies, same old candy.  Same old Christmas dinner.  I decided that this year, I would try some new things.

The first new things I tried are Gumdrop Cookies. (Scroll down a bit.)

I have declared them to be a New Holiday Tradition.  Thanks, Amy, for the recipe.  I can't stop eating them!

These are Cherry Chocolate Kisses

I have declared them to be Another New Holiday Tradition.  They have got to be the best things I have ever put into my mouth. 

My great grandmother always made cherry pies, especially at Christmas.  When I was growing up, we often had a cherry pie or two in with the pumpkin, pecan, and mincemeat pies.  I wonder that I never tried to bake one before.  So, I was laying there in bed, around midnight, when I suddenly decided that I wanted to make a cherry pie.

So, off to the store I go.  I avoided Wal-mart like the plague.  I decided I'd try the smaller, locally owned grocery store, but I couldn't even get into the parking lot.  I ended up finding a can of cherry pie filling at Dollar General.

I made the crust myself.

Looks pretty good, huh? Next time, I want to try a lattice crust, but I just didn't have time today.
