One of our favorites at this time of the year is Black Forest Yule log. It's simply a chocolate jelly roll that you fill with whipped cream and pie cherries. We strain off some of the sauce from the pi cherries so that it's not so soupy. After rolling the cake up we chill it for about an hour then coat the outside with chocolate ganache.
The other one we do also uses a chocolate jellyroll cake but is filled with mocha buttercream and coated with chocolate ganache.
As for the usual cookies we do gingerbread, chocolate chip, sugar cookies, raspberry fold overs and spumoni. The one that goes really fast though is Almond Crescents where half the cookie is dipped in chocolate. We're lucky if those make it a day here. Mexican Wedding cookies are also a favorite here.
YUM!! I def got to try some of these Thank You :)
