Do you or your family have a favorite that is around only this time of year ?

Our housekeeper's mother and several  mothers of the secretaries at my husbands office make from scratch tamales to sell.We stock up some in the the freezer for the year.A few years ago I posted the info on our neighborhood blog and now they all sell out very quickly.A couple of neighbors help me get the tamales with coolers. A win -win ...yummy food for us ...extra spending money for the grandmas.My personal get teased by the kids one is Starbucks Cranberry Bliss bar w/ a non fat chai tea latte.They are so bad for you so I make them a treat and this amuses my teens ...lol...

What is yours...

Starbucks Eggnog Latte but I get them sparingly over the season.  DH and DD  like the Oreo cookies covered with the white fudge that you can only get this time of year

Love tamales. We stock up on ours during the fall when apple season is in full swing. My mom's boyfriend manages one of the local orchards and there is a "tamale truck" that comes to the farms and sells to the workers. They are amazing!!

I love anything sweet at Christmas, especially homemade candy and my Aunt's oatmeal maple cookies, they rock.

YA so much better than any at the store...even the supposed premium brands.Our stores have lots of brands of tamales but compared to the homemade ones they are just not good.

Oatmeal maple cookies ,my goodness they do sound like they rock ,sound delicious .

Honestly? I don't really have a holiday treat I like.  Not really into sweets but this is the time of year I make fudge.  All kinds of fudge.  And this year I made a treat box for hubby's employees (only seven of them) which included cubed chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge in the shape of a muffin, peppermint bark and peppermint taffy.  It's all nice and wrapped up pretty.
