  1. My favorite thing to make for the holidays is a classic Italian meal that reminds me of my grandma: stuffed cannelloni, herbed roasted chicken and roasted garlic and rosemary potatoes!

    They are all family favorites and I would never make them all at once during the year, it’s way too much food! But at Christmas… 🙂

    P.S. I am entering because I still have a US address, I hope that’s ok!

  2. I love making handmade gifts but especially mailing my handmade holiday cards…love that family and friends want to see what the card will look like or how it will be a 3d or interactive card…

  3. I look forward to all the cooking we do around the holidays. It’s one of my favorite things to be in the kitchen with my mom and sister working on different treats and laughing together.

    If I substituted the cinnamon flavoring in these with another flavoring, would the recipe still work? I can’t have cinnamon.

  4. Christmas wouldnt be the same without all the traditional Christmas cookies I grew up with each year!! mmmm
    thanks fr the chance to win and the great homemade ideas

  5. I can’t choose just one thing that is my favorite. I adore making cookies and hosting cookie swaps… but there are syrups and fudges and caramels and more, too. Just stick me in the kitchen and I’m happy!

  6. The recipe sounds simple, but lacks a lot of important information. Like, how much does this recipe make? What size baking sheet should be used? And how much time is considered “right before it cools” — 30 mins, an hour??? If this information would’ve been included, I wouldn’t have had to trash my “product” last night when I tried the recipe.

    1. Hi Jan,

      I haven’t used cinnamon oil, so I’m not really sure what the best way to adapt from personal experience, however, the research that I’ve done says to divide by 4 if using oil in place of extract/flavoring. Hope that helps!
