A Foodie's Christmas

Here are some foodie pictures from our Christmas week:
Grandma baked sugar cookies with Rachel. "Cookie-cutter cookies" as I usually call them, are a tradition. They were the only kind of cookies (other than shortbread) that we made growing up. This year my mom got the job and Rachel helped.

Rachel and James were called in to help make the mince pies. James got the job of filling the pies with mincemeat.
Rachel rolled out the pastry and cut the pie shapes
The finished product -- delicious!
Our traditional Christmas morning bread
My sister made an incredible Christmas brunch of creamed eggs on toast with sausage and bacon, fruit salad and these delectable-looking pastries
Christmas tea-time treats
The mince pies make an appearance
Christina cooked a huge ham which was very tasty
Christmas dinner itself We never did get a picture of the desserts which included fruit cake, chocolate chestnut cake (gluten free), apple pie and cookies. We were actually too tired and too full to really eat dessert and so some just nibbled. Perhaps that's why no pictures were taken.

I don't know about you but I'm about fooded out! The pictures are beautiful. Loved your shortbread. I enjoyed it with a cup of strong tea.
