    Fruitcake, eggnog, See's Candy… It's also the only time of year I roast a Prime Rib — because my sweet sister brings it.

    Jelly Snow Top cookies – like a thumbprint cookie with meringue on top. My mother made them at Christmas when I was little.

    These oatmeal cookies I make from a recipe my great-grandmother had. They are made from only; melted shortening, brown sugar, oatmeal, baking soda and salt. Shaped into a log, put in the refrigerator for awhile, sliced and baked. They are wonderful!! I know they are really bad for me, so that's why I only make them at Christmas. I honestly could eat and entire log in one sitting.

    I love all of your answers.
    I personally indulge in popcorn cake. A goody mixture of popcorn, fruit flavored gum drops mixed salted nuts held together by butter, oil and marshmallows, sprinkled with colored sugar. All pressed into a bundt pan. When its firm it slides out and is sliced. An entire one is NOT enough.

    Just pulled Jule Kage out of the oven. It's a Norwegian Christmas bread with citron, raisins (or craisins), flavored with cardamom. It's my grandmother's recipe. And I make killer fudge with 28 oz. of three different chocolates in it. Evil.

    My wife's chocolate macaroons. Every time I eat one, I feel like I should go to confession, and I'm not even Catholic.
