loves2experiement, you just reminded me of one of my most favorite treats...sweet & spicy pecans. I'll dig the recipe up and post it soon. They are the usual sugared pecans with an underlying subtle heat from cayenne pepper. Delicious and unique.

LivinEasy, I've never tried that but it sounds scrumptious.  Do post a recipe for that!

classycrafter, here's the recipe for the sugared pecans!

You'll need:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 lb pecan halves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Method:
  • Preheat oven to 250F.  Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
  • Beat the egg white and water in a large bowl until frothy.  Combine the sugar, cinnamon and salt in another bowl.
  • Add the pecans into the egg white and water mixture.  Make sure the pecans are coated evenly.  Remove pecans from egg white and water mixture and coat them with the sugar mixture.  Spread out the nuts on the prepared greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 1 hour, stirring the nuts every 15 minutes or so.

Voila!  They're done...enjoy!

i'm braving the jam this year. *gulp*
You could try making jam for everyone?

Do Americans have White Christmas? Or is it an aussie thing? i hate the stuff, but lots of people like it. It's really common round xmas and no other time.

The first two recipes. Though "Leonie's" looks better (no copha it it. copha is godawful).
Though the truffles aren't a bad idea either.

Lupin, I have never heard of that White Christmas Candy before. It sounds pretty good Smiley I think I'll make some of that second recipe. Any suggestions?

I made peach preserves last week. They turned out really well without much effort. I'm trying out the dilly beans today.
The jars are sanitizing as we speak- just gotta finish my coffee before I dive into canning this morning. The husband caught a cold, so I've been babying him this morning.

Here's one from my childhood, I still make it.  My mom used to make these around the first of December, then stored them in the attic (unheated, uninsulated) until Christmas.

Date Roll

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
 Boil for 2 minutes until sugar dissolves
Add
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
 Cook to 238 degrees (soft ball)
Add
1 tbs Butter
 Beat until it holds its shape,  Shape into a 6" roll.  Wrap  and refridgerate.

I just posted in the Christmas Cooking thread about my hand-dipped chocolates.  They're soooooo easy, but they look like they were a lot more work.  And they taste so yummy.

This is a good idea to get these goodies thought of now! Great thread.

I'd love to take on jam making.  This is a perfect time of year to make it.  i have a friend who makes chili blueberry jam as present and serves it over ice cream!!

Things I've made in the past as Christmas treats, and links to recipes:
homemade Limoncello (sweet lemoney liqueur)
white chocolate mint fudge: this one is sooooo excellent!  It's just marshmallow whip fudge but made with white chocolate instead and with mint flavoring.  Add drops of food coloring to the top of the fudge after you pour it out and then make pretty swirls with a toothpick.
powder sugar mints: I like to add food coloring to the recipe. Dipping these in chocolate is key.
biscotti in all sorts of flavors and dipped in chocolate if I have the patience!

This year I'm making vanilla liquer for everyone, and obsene gingerbread cookies!
Check out my blog post about this cute cookbook I got to review: the Cookie Sutra...
