Holiday Food Traditions

posted by snekse
Cookies. Lots and lots of cookies. Snickerdoodles, thumb print cookies, ginger snaps, chocolate chip, and of course sugar cookies. That seems to be a growing holiday cooking tradition in our house. I imagine it will become more permanent as our daughter gets older.

My wife's family used to make custard pie, pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheese pie, but that's faded a bit recently. If it were up to my father-in-law, prime rib would solidify it's place on the table each year. I'm all for that, but it becomes harder to do as the number of dinner guests keeps growing each year. The only other thing that is always made is smashed candied yams. Always.

What's your holiday food tradition

Do you make a fancy dish out of The French Laundry Cookbook? Do you make popcorn garlands? Do you go counter-culture and make something not associated with the season, like lobster or BBQ Ribs? Anyone make an ethnic dish from your family's culture or borrow from another culture? Christopsomo, Tourtiere, Latkes? Do you defy the winter snow and cook outside?

A gift

Share your holiday food traditions with us. We'll select one of stories at random to win a $50 gift certificate provided to us by Carrabba's Italian Grill. We'll give away the certificate sometime around the first of the year. Don't have a tradition yet? Maybe you should start one by making Mini Cannolis, Salty Newspaper Steak, Kahlua Coffee Liqueur or Wonton Soup.
