126. Christmas time is filled with so many delicious treats. Homemade cookies, candy, breads and traditional family sweets.
These fabulous cookies were from Mexico. They were buttery and so light.
Another delicious cookie is Cucidati, an Italian Fig Cookie filled with figs, dates and walnuts.
and I am so glad our family makes the list! These are delicious with a hot cup of tea.
My precious friend Jiulia makes this Italian favorite, Struffoli, Tiny Honey Balls.
Each year I look forward to THE FABULOUS CHEESCAKE. Our friends ring the doorbell and sing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", and in their hands is a homemade cheesecake smothered in red raspberries glistening with raspberry glaze.
A pot of coffee is made and we all sit down to savor this delightful gift.
There is a new treat added to our Christmas Treat's list...Ube Cake Roll.
I had never heard of Ube Cake Roll, but learned it is a Philippine delight. Jordan told us it was his favorite dessert growing up.
This cake roll is made with "Ube", a purple colored yam which gives it a violet color.
The texture of the cake was very similar to sponge cake and the cream was so light and fluffy. Although this cake is not very sweet, it calls you back for a second, third and forth bite.
Our friends were so generous this Christmas and spoiled our family with these wonderful treats. We are blessed with family, friends and a Savior who gave for all.
