What Special Dessert Did Your Mom Make For Christmas Dinner??
December 7, 2016 9:00pm CST
I have to really think back, but I'm pretty sure that it was fruitcake. I don't remember any other dessert, so it had to be fruit cake. On the other hand, my mom loved making pies, but it is the fruitcake that keeps reaching out to me. I should ask her tomorrow if I can get a free line. I can't imagine Christmas without fruitcake! It's odd though that she didn't make the same cake that Nanny made each year. Mom was all about traditions and fruitcake was never a part of it! Just hope that the lines are up tomorrow! This storm has really done a number on our area. Do you remember if there was a special dessert that your mom made??

I was born in Milan (Italy) and for the Christmas dinner we always ate the traditional cake, that everyone buys because it is too long and difficult to make at home. The name of the cake is Panettone, only good if bought in a good pastry shop.

I like the idea of fruit salad especially when the temps are soaring. Hubby's family (from England) introduced trifle and that was really good. He just came home from shopping with plum pudding... I think that I know what we are having this year!!
