Holiday Treats

It’s Christmas time. When we hear this, we automatically start thinking about Jesus’ birth, Santa, no school and of course the wonderful cooking that comes along with Christmas day.
It may not be as well known as the Thanksgiving Day feast, but it is still great nonetheless.  More than likely what you first think of are the Christmas cookies, and for good reason!  There are so many different kinds of cookies.
Mrs. Killion, PA’s Foods teacher, says,  “The most popular Christmas treats by far are Christmas cookies–all shapes, sizes and varieties. Everyone seems to have a favorite!”
Her favorite type of Christmas cookie is the mini Reese’s peanut butter cookies.
“They’re similar to peanut butter kisses, only WAY better!” Mrs. Killion says.
Sophomores Sam Ferreira and Harrison Vetter both agree that the peanut butter blossoms with the Hershey Kiss is their favorite kind of Christmas dessert.

Around Christmas time,the Providence Academy Foods classes often make a dessert called Buche de Noel (which translates to Yule Log) cakes, which are decorated to look just like an actual Yule Log, but these treats taste much better!
Christmas foods do not have to be all that advanced. Plenty of the most well-liked foods are some of the traditional treats. Things like gingerbread men, candy canes, and of course probably the most iconic Christmas drink of all, eggnog, are some of the favorite treats this time of year.  
So even though you may have quite the busy Christmas break, everyone should definitely take some time to eat some of these delicious holiday treats!
