Show us your goodies!

what tasty treats are you making this holiday season?

First on my list was lefse.
Still to go, rosettes, scones, fudge, and monkey bread (my annual treat for work, I get up at about 430am & cook it all so I can bring it in fresh. yumm!)


Took about 3.5 hours to produce about 80 sheets of lefse.

I used to make it using a standard pastry mat (plastic), teflon rolling pin and electric pancake griddle. It was a battle.
This year I upgraded to the real deal, and it turned out awesome!


mm, a steaming pile of lefse.


Doesn't end up looking like much, huh? All my favorite people will get a package this year.

I just set a case of Rolos and a case of King-sized Mounds bars out by our work coffee station.

No pics, sorry

Be looking forward to a few of these this Christmas.

Berliner Brot, Berlin bread, is kind of like biscotti, but harder than diamonds.
My bro and sis are the committed bakers in my family. Looking forward to seeing them.

Almost into the 140s... again.

And my ravenous coworkers took them all and left the empty boxes (which have bite marks on them).

The scone recipe I'll have to dig up. I know I posted it in some recipe on here at one point... but the search feature = the suck lately.

I worked (front-end) at a scandinavian bakery that made the most amazing almond and poppy-seed filled kolaches. yum. Never even thought of making them myself. Are they difficult? Do you have a recipe?

monkey bread is rhodes bread dough, butterscotch pudding, and butter (more or less) baked in a bundt pan. The product is a caramely mess of pull-apart goodness that would probably freeze an artery so fast you wouldn't even know what hit you. (thats how I'd chose to go!)

Here it is! Its very easy, and makes a nice presentation.

1 pkg frozen dinner rolls (i use rhodes)
1 pkg regular (not instant) butterscotch pudding
Chopped pecans (optional)
3/4 c brown sugar
6 Tablespoons melted butter

Grease bundt pan. Sprinkle nuts on bottom. Arrange rolls over nuts. Sprinkle dry pudding over rolls. Mix sugar and melted butter together and pour (drizzle) over rolls. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Cover with towel and let rise over night or at least 8 hours.


Bake 350įF for 45 min to 1 hour.


COOL NO LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES (or it will GLUE into the pan!). Turn pan over on serving dish and enjoy.

This thread title is misleading! I was hoping to see Arti's goodies, not Arti's goodies! And what's lefse?

Anyways, my wife vetoed homemade fruitcake even though I saw it on Good Eats so I guess I'll have to make something else. I do have a recipe for a buche noel...

based on the number of hits on this thread versus replies, I'd guess you aren't the only person feeling mislead!

Lefse is a scandinavian potato flatbread (think nordic tortilla). I enjoy it with lingonberry cream cheese spread (which I make), a little butter & cinnamon sugar- although the norwegians enjoy it with lutefisk. I also hear its a great holder for hot dogs, too

Oh my goodness, lefse. My wife is half-Norwegian, so her mom makes lefse and krumkake and we had a kransekake at our wedding (link to pic). Mmmm. Actually, we've made krumkake too on occasion.

Too bad my wife has been gluten-free for years and is 7 months pregnant and won't be in the mood for baking anything this Christmas... except for the boy inside! She did a nice GF pecan pie for Thanksgiving though.

kransekake is a new one to me. looks tasty!
krumkake i might make if I had an iron, but I don't really need any more cooking equipment for my once-yearly Scandinavian cooking spree

We have a krumkake iron laying about somewhere. And a complete set of kransekake rings.

If I get the time (work, dog and pregnancy permitting), I might do a big batch of GF sugar cookies before Christmas. I can't screw them up THAT badly.

It had nothing to do with a holiday (what holiday is it? The next holiday is almost a month away), but I just decided to make cupcakes from scratch last night. I have no photographic evidence, but they are delicious.

I had three for lunch today.

Something tells me they have some additional fiber too.

You can make it up to the internet by posing suggestively with your goodies. That sentence is rife w/ possibilities!

I just bought a fresh bag o' flour and yeast. Should I look up Stacey's old bread recipes or does someone want to post a fairly simple, yet delicious one?
