    We do gingerbread, rum balls, rocky road and maple caramel slice. I used to make crostoli and honey biscuits with my Italian grandmother - when my health gets back on track, I'm going to restart the tradition.

    Ginger bread and mars bar slice are my two go to recipes. Feel like something a bit different this year, might try white Christmas or a good caramel slice if anyone cares to share a recipe?

    I have two different recipes!
    The first one you need to leave the dough to prove for an hour. The second one is in the link and you'll be done from go to woe in half an hour.

    I prefer the second one, and have made it several times. It's just quick and easy. Once I made it all with whole meal flour, and it was still pretty good but chewier. I prefer it with white flour.


    4 teaspoons active dry yeast
    1 teaspoon white sugar
    1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
    5 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/2 cup baking soda
    4 cups hot water
    1/4 cup kosher salt, for topping
    Directions

    1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center; add the oil and yeast mixture. Mix and form into a dough. If the mixture is dry, add one or two tablespoons of water. Knead the dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
    3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water.
    4. When risen, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope and twist into a pretzel shape. Once all of the dough is all shaped, dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until browned.

    I get them into the oven and wait til they're almost ready, then brush with melted butter and pop back in to brown up.
    Then i take them out, brush with butter again and grind some salt over them top. Let them cool.
    Then to eat I break them up and spread more butter (yes more butter!). Yum!!
