It seems that every family has food traditions connected with Christmas. My mother always made fruitcake for Christmas. Early on it was the traditional dark cake with lots of candied fruit and nuts. Later she changed to a Kentucky bourbon cake that was a light colored cake with less fruit and more nuts. After she baked it she would soak it in a healthy amount of bourbon and wrap it in a towel. That was a good cake! My aunt always made an almond crescent cookie that was rolled in vanilla sugar. I could eat my weight in those. Many food traditions center around desserts. I suppose that's because we try to avoid a lot of dessert during the year so we think it is alright to indulge during the holidays. My biscuits are becoming a tradition for my extended family. I serve them warmed with Edwards ham. They don't last long once they come out of the oven. Why don't you give them a try for your holiday dinner? Your family will thank you!
