Does anyone have an idea of what sweet thing I could make on Christmas morning for my family?
Homemade crepes filled with chestnut puree, a bit of strawberry jam and real whipping cream, drizzled with maple syrup. Decadent and Delicious !! Hard boiled eggs on the side to sop up the gooey maple syrup left on the plate is wonderful too.
We didn't have a lot of money when I was a kid but Christmas and Easter mornings were special days. I'm a senior now, and do this for my grandkids. A family tradition lives on.
To keep things easier on the morning, I often make the crepes the day before and in the morning, just sprinkle them with water before re-heating them in the oven. Re-heating in the microwave makes the crepes too floppy.
I am looking for some good Christmas recipes for me and my daughter to make this year. We both are really into cooking and this is something I never did with my mom as a child. I am looking for any cookie, candy, and bars recipes or anything you've got. Thank you for your time.

I like to research for the origin of things, especially cooking. It is often thrilling to see how our grandmothers did things. This time, I am searching for old fashioned recipes for Christmas, such as spekulatius recipe, stolen cakes, etc. I know there are some goodies that need a whole month of preparation before baking. Also, recipes you can store for a period. If anyone can oblige... My thanks in advance.
