K-2 for Two

On the second day before Christmas, PBW gave away:

Two novels of K-2

In comments to this post, name your favorite holiday cookie, dish or treat (or, if you can't choose only one, just drop your name in the hat) by midnight EST on Tuesday, December 25, 2007. I will draw two names at random from everyone who participates and send the winners signed hardcover copies of BioRescue and Afterburn (these first editions are now out of print, so they're hard to find.) This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

  3. One of my favorite holiday treats are "Hello Dollies" or some people call them 6 Layer bars. I almost never make these except at Christmas.

    You melt butter in the bottom of you baking pan mix in graham cracker crumbs to form your crust, then sprinkle pecans, chocolate chips and coconut over the graham crackers. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the whole thing and bake. Fantastic!!

    My other favorite treat is fudge, and for some reason I only make this at Christmas too.

  4. My grandmother makes a killer Taco salad. Not really Christmas-y, but it's my favorite.

  5. It used to be White Christmas, but I haven't had it in a while so maybe it's not. Right now, it'd be punch with cherries and pineapple in it.

  6. Chocolate, in any form.

  7. Well I like just about everything but if I had to pick a favorite holiday treat it would be pumpkin pie. Our family has an old recipe thats been handed down and is only supposed to be used on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It makes everyone look forward to dessert on those days. Merry Christmas to one and all.

  8. Totally has to be Christmas pudding. The best part is my husband doesn't like it, so I get it all to myself! heheheh

  9. Piggies in blankets. It has to be them - little sausages wrapped in bacon? Win-win situation!

  10. My Finnish grandmother made prune tarts, shaped like stars, only at Christmas. They were rich, flaky, tender pastry around a dark, sweet center - so delicious.

  14. Cinnamon rolls. It doesn't sound like a holiday treat, but my family always makes cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning; it's a tradition by now.

  19. My dad's side of the family has always served a dish called Swedish Pudding.

    It’s a desert affair made in a bowl with layers of apple sauce, white bread, fresh whipped cream, and cinnamon. (It’s a whole lot yummier than it sounds!)

    When made the night before all the ingredients rub off on one another, and the result is delicious.

    Happy Holidays, Everyone!

  23. Mince pies straight from the oven. :)

    I think these might be a UK only thing. I know I've had to explain what they are in the past, to non-UKians. But they're pastry pies filled with dried fruits(raisins, sultanas, somtimes apple) in a kind of jam, with little bits of suet, dusted with icing sugar. Scrumptious.

    Pumpkin rolls. They are soooo good, and they are low cal. 'Course you wouldn't know it at all.

    They're sorta like yule logs, only pumpkin-flavored with cream cheese filling.

    Cheers,
    Erin K.

    My favorite is butter tarts. Soooo good!

    I don't want to be put in the draw, though. I already have hard covers of both books and I don't want to take away from those who don't.

  26. In my father's family, we traditionally have golabki (Polish cabbage rolls) for Christmas. It's a tradition I miss now that I'm living in Cajun country, where my father-in-law insists on pork loin for Christmas. *sigh*

  27. Warm chocolate chip cookies and a mug of egg nog, snuggled up on the couch with your significant other, watching a good movie.

    What better way to spend a cozy Christmas evening?

  31. My mom always makes a wonderful Christmas dinner so whatever she makes that day is my favorite! Count me in.

  32. I'm definitely a big cookie person, and sad that this is my first year far from home because now I can't go raid my mother's house for hers... so I made sugar cookies with royal icing (half of which are things like cats and turtles because my cookie cutters are not very Christmas-y) and today I'm going to be doing pecan balls covered in powdered sugar.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good, old fashioned sugar cookies are my favorite.

    ReplyDelete

  52. My favorite are my grandmother's anise cookies, that I haven't had any of since Christmas '97... and though we finally found a copy of her recipe a few years ago, I still haven't managed to get them to turn out quite like hers. (And no, her recipe isn't online anywhere... and isn't anything like any others I found while searching for a good replacement during those no-recipe years.)

  53. My favorite treat is my mom's sausage balls. They are a nice break from all the sweet offerings of the holiday season.

  54. I like best the chocolate cream pie recipe I have.
