This Christmas season is a time for sharing, and home-baked breads and cookies have traditionally been favorite tokens of good cheer. In early America, they were loaded into the carriage or buckboard, to be delivered to friends, neighbors and relatives.
Christmas is a time for family gatherings and sitting down to a wonderful meal which includes favorite foods, some of which are reserved for special occasions, or which appear only during the yuletide season.
The 78 recipes in this book include special holiday treats such as Cranberry Bread, Mincemeat Bread, Swedish Christmas Crescents, Spritz Cookies, Molasses Crinkles, White Fruit Cake and Cranberry-Orange Punch. A special section of steamed and baked puddings recalls old-time traditions. Try Plum Pudding, Pumpkin Pudding or steamed Persimmon Pudding for a special treat.
Candy making is another time-honored tradition during the holiday season. Children love to help pull Old-Fashioned Taffy, and Chocolate Toffee, Pralines, Sea Foam and Honey Rum Balls will be among the most popular snacks of the season.
