Christmas Traditions recipes

My girl is getting very into cooking lately. I have a lot of traditional recipes for our Thanksgiving fare, but not as many for Christmas. What do you make that is a must have every year food for Christmas celebrations?

Re: Christmas Traditions recipes

Christmas is all about cookies in my family.

Every year for as long as I can remember I have helped cook:
- molasses sugar cookies
- buckeyes (peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate)
- mouse turd cookies (butter/oatmeal/powdered sugar cookies with chocolate sprinkles around the edge)
- belly button cookies (peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses on top)

For some reason, Christmas also means weirdo names for otherwise delicious cookies. My family is odd, what can I say?

Re: Christmas Traditions recipes

We do an overnight breakfast casserole on Christmas Eve. You put it together and it has to sit overnight. Then, when the kids wake up on Christmas morning to open gifts, we pop it in the oven (takes an hour to cook). Once the kids are done ripping into goodies and actually ready for breakfast, it's ready to eat! And everyone loves it...

Snack-wise, I make a lot of peanut butter fudge and we like mini smoked sausages wrapped in crescent rolls (our version of pigs in a blanket) to snack on.

Christmas-dinner wise, we have a glazed ham, crockpot cheesy potatoes, all-day green beans, homemade rolls, broccoli slaw salad, and dessert (this year I'm making chocolate chess pie and pupmkin dump cake).
