Snowballs

It’s snowing!  Okay, maybe it’s not literally snowing in the hot Christmas South, but we can make it snow with these buttery melt-in-your mouth winter white Snowballs!  

These balls of white powder are shortbread-like cookies that make Christmas time, in my house, extra special.  You need a little sparkle of glittering snow on your Christmas table, making eyes wide with awe and excitement!

Snowballs

I’m warning you, they are messy, but so worth it!  If you make them small enough you can just pop them in your mouth without getting the powdered sugar everywhere, but that’s just hopeful thinking.  These cookies are made to make a little snow dusting.  You can keep popping them in your mouth,though, enjoying every bite of their buttery sweet texture that will just melt in your mouth.  If you don’t usually moan with an excited yumminess moan when you take a bite of something, you will when you take your first bite of these Snowballs.  I should call these Excited Moaning Snowballs because every time I make them, it seems like everyone just moans and does that ‘oh this is so good’ eye roll, especially my family members.  It’s kind of quite humorous:)
Come on over and get ready for a snowball fight as we mix and roll and get powdery white with this Christmas favorite and let Summie’s Yummies Sweet (and Snowy) Deliveries bring merriment and joy to your Christmas celebrations!:)  Merry Christmas!!!

Grandmother’s Gluten-Free Fruitcake

Christmas can bring such wonderful memories.  Christmas also brings the tacky re-gifted Christmas present – fruitcake but not Grandmother’s Gluten-Free Fruitcake.  Some people don’t like fruitcake, cringing at the thought of getting it and just pass it along as joke to next person.  That’s understandable because the store bought fruitcakes are loaded with all sorts of flavorings and liqueurs and sugars and who knows what else.  BUT, I have a recipe that will change your mind about fruitcake forever!  You’ll never one to re-gift this one because you’ll want to have and it and savor it all for yourself!  This fruitcake is passed on from my Grandmother, who always made it year after year and lovingly taught me how to make it, passing on the much anticipated fruitcake family tradition on to me.  That day so many years ago, when I first made this fruitcake with my Grandmother created such fun memories that I now look back on and am so thankful of that time I was able to spend with her, bake with her and laugh with her bringing in the Christmas celebrations.

My Grandmother’s Gluten-Free Fruitcake  is one you are going to love sharing with others (if you can part with it yourself), with friends and family alike.  You’ll find them asking for it year after year.  Put on an apron, don’t forget to turn on some Christmas music, maybe grab a friend to help with all the cutting and hand scraping (I’ll explain:). Get ready to laugh and rejoice while getting a little fruity and a little messy!:) Let’s get a fruitcaking! Continue reading →

Dairy Free Holiday Chex Mix

Taking a break, well sort of, from all the yummy and sweet baking, to a more savory baked treat that just spells out H-O-L-I-D-A-Y!  Along with all the Christmas cookies, the crunchy, salty, peanutty, baked taste of Chex Mix just rings in the holiday season.  Chex Mix is great to snack on when you’re out Christmas shopping or poured into a fun and fancy party bowl as you gather round with friends and family to celebrate joy and peace.  Chex Mix also makes a great gift to give to a family member or friend, just pour it in a cute jar and tie a ribbon around it…present perfection that’ll bring a smile to the gift receiver and joy to you, the gift giver.  With this Chex Mix, I made a dairy free and wheat free version, so come along with me and let’s get baking some Dairy Free Holiday Chex Mix to get the party started, because no party, or home, should go without this amazing treat this holiday season!

This time of year, you know how you see all the commercials with the little kids watching their mom’s stirring and baking the Chex Mix and putting it in bowls to share and how the kids get so excited watching and anticipating the outcome.  Then, when they grow up they do the same for their kids?  That’s how I feel with Chex Mix…..it’s something I remember my mom making around Christmas time and it’s something I look forward to making every year at Christmas time.  Even though I don’t have kids, I enjoy making it and seeing how excited my family and friends get when they see homemade Chex Mix on the table or smell it baking in the oven.  It doesn’t have to be a sweet home baked good to bring excitement and joy, a bowl of Chex Mix does the exact same thing.  I don’t know what it is, but the combination of Worcestershire and seasoned salt baking together, wrapping all around and inside the little holes of the rice and corn chex cereals and nuts (a mixture or just peanuts), make for a special holiday flavor.  I love having this, especially warm out of the oven, for a special simple breakfast alternative when I don’t really want anything big.  Even though these baked goodies can be baked anytime throughout the year, Christmastime is definitely where it comes alive!  Continue reading →
