I spent hours in the kitchen on Christmas Eve working on some foods I planned to have on Christmas day. Inspired by my new Pioneer Woman cookbook, most of what I cooked came from there. If you don't have it, get it! There's some great recipes in there.
Here's what our Christmas day feast included:
PW's Cinnamon rolls (half w/ coffee flavored icing, half w/ orange marmalade icing) and coffee
So worth the effort! I made the dough in the afternoon and cooked them the night before, reserving half of the icing so when I heated them up on Christmas morning I had fresh icing to top them off. Yes, they're full of fat, but hey...it's Christmas! Plus, I used half whole wheat flour so I felt a little better about that.
