Its a good idea SB, I may not follow the religious aspect of christmas but I enjoy the food and the bonhomie it engenders.

I'm wondering if this will include the old cookie recipes that we thought were special but have more or less become generic over the years, e.g., date nut bars, Russian teacakes (in my neighborhood) under their various names; sugar cookies to decorate - my SIL made the most wonderful, soft sugar cookies I ever tasted. She once gave me the recipe but I lost it and don't have the nerve to ask for it again. So I'm hoping that maybe Kadesma will have a TNT version.

I probably won't invest in new equipment for seasonal goodies, but I'll enjoy reading the recipes and methods.

I adore rosettes and have a gazillion forms. They just melt in our mouths.

Fattigmans? How come you don't make them? They're yummy and, I think, so easy to make.

Wow - you guys all just listed off a bunch of food I've never heard of! :)

If people are sharing, can I request something? I'd like make-ahead and freezeable Christmas goodies... I have 4 kids ages 6 and under so my life is BUSY to say the least and I feel that if I got my Christmas baking done ahead of time, I could enjoy the holiday more :) So far, I have a recipe for a toffee that goes over saltine crackers and is surprisingly delish.
TIA :)

Given my choice, I prefer Rosettes. I don't know why--but Fattigman doesn't do it for me. Krumkake, on the other hand, I adore! Jess11--traditionally, the Scandinavians have 7 cookies for Christmas. You won't want to make either Krumkake or Rossettes--you have to do them one at a time (I don't like the double Rossette iron), or 2 at a time if you have a double Rossette iron or Krumkake iron. Here are a couple of links that show pics of these:

Scandinavian Rosette Cookies - A Traditional Scandinavian Recipe for Rosette Cookies

How to Make Krumkake - Illustrated Step-by-Step Instructions to Make Norwegian Krumkake Cookies

My krumkake recipe is different (as is my rosette recipe), but this will give you an idea of what they are. And, my krumkake iron and rosette irons were my grandmother's, so they are special. Maybe that's why I am not that found of Fattigman--no tools handed down!

here is a recipe that i got from a friend a couple years ago and it is really good.

1 cup shorting
1/2 tea. soda
2 cups sugar
2 teas. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 teas. salt
1 cup sour cream
4 teas. baking powder
4 1/2 cups flour

Cream shortening, and sugar together, beat in eggs, vanilla, and sour cream.
in separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix into the wet ingredients.

roll nice and thick, cut with your favorite cutters and bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes.
