The Christmas Treats Recipe Thread

christmas foodThis post is for your favorite Christmas treats. That could be cookies, cakes, chex mixes, cheese balls, drinks, or any old party food or dessert favorite. There will be a regular recipe thread in a week or so. Here are a couple of ideas to get us started. This is an example of what we hope you are eating this holiday season, and will share your recipes for.


Here is your Don’t Bother example! See how easy this is?

don't bother

And to finish with a big bang, here is the recipe for a drink called Three Wise Men featuring…you guessed it! Jack Daniel’s whiskey.



1/2 oz Jack Daniel’s Whiskey

!/2 oz Jim Beam Bourbon

1/2 oz Yukon Jack

Mix and enjoy!

Menagerie’s Three Wiser Men Plus One

One shot each of Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, and Jack Daniel’s Black Label. Mix, add ice if you’re kinda a sissy, drink, and follow with a shot of Winter Jack. Do not drink this on a weeknight unless you have 1.75 days off following this exquisite concoction. 3.668 days if you don’t hold yer likker well.

    About 35 or 40 years ago, my mother made a mistake when she was making fruitcakes at Christmas. She wanted to double the recipe. Well, she doubled the fruit and nuts portion, but forgot to double the cake part. She cried when she took them out of the oven and realized what she had done. Funny, though, everyone loved her fruitcake that year so much that she made it that way every Christmas until a few years before she died and was too frail to bake. 🙂 She used to make the best cooking mistakes.

    This is the Christmas season! So put away the vodka, everclear, aftershave, brake fluid, or antifreeze, and get out the bottle of your favorite cognac or other brandy. Tonight we drink Nikolashas!!! Here’s how.
    Take one fresh lemon and slice paper thin, or a close as possible. Heavily dust each slice with powdered sugar. Pour a shot of the brandy. Then take a sip, followed by a bite of the sugared lemon, and repeat as desired.
