In the Christmas spirit...

I did some baking yesterday and while they are not Christmas recipes per se, the end result looked Chrismassy! Cherry Shortbreads...
~
Anzacs made with dark treacle and brown sugar - crunchy and chewy at the same time...
~
... and ginger snaps...
~
I also made some Rocky Road. I bought round Christmas boxes from the $2 shop (ours is called Absolutely Anything) to put them in.
~
We had dinner at Angus' Mum's new unit last night. Her sister is visiting from Bendigo so I made up a box for each of them. They were super pleased!
~
Do you have any good Christmas recipes which make good gifts?

  2. Hi Joolz,
    They look delicious. Honey Biscuits is always a traditional Christmas treat in my husband's family.
    We're learning lots about your area of late as our local TV news services have combined...Do you watch the local news? There's been a fair bit of flack about it here in the Riverland. Saw you had your local Christmas pageant yesterday...it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

  3. I used to make spicy, sweet almonds, apricot balls and mince pies. I'm not doing much baking this year because my cholesterol is a bit high, I need to look out some recipes that have no saturated fat in them. Your biscuits look yummy, I will just have to drool over the pictures.

  4. I would have been happy with those goodies too. I make much the same and usually add coconut ice as well. A baking day is nice every now and then.
