Christmas morning was all about gathering around the Christmas tree with the family!
Toothpicks inserted into a plastic foam cone made a sweet little Christmas tree covered with doughnut holes.
Fresh fruit and Christmas morning cups offered sweet and savory treats. Joe's Christmas morning must-have is his mother's sausage pinwheels. To make these, roll out a can of biscuit dough into a long rectangle. Spread sausage over the dough and roll the dough to make a long tube. Slice into pinwheels and bake at 350 degrees on a slotted cookie sheet for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with grape jelly alongside.
My traditional favorite is Pillsbury orange sweet rolls. I grew up with these, but I rarely serve them because I'm the only one in my household who eats them. I was thankful my parents were here Christmas morning so we could share them!
