Mom would start baking Christmas cookies right after Thanksgiving. She would make a new treat each day, putting them in colorful tins & “ hiding” them in the cellar cupboard. We, of course, would always go sneak a few. She, of course, knew it! We continued this throughout adulthood. ❤️Cookies are my very, very most deliciously favorite part of the Holidays❣️💚❣️
I “know” that this dessert is traditionally made with chocolate cake, but that is not my favorite flavor. Because I prefer caramel, butterscotch, peanut butter, etc., that is how I chose to illustrate my cake.
I folded the origami animals, but credit for their designs goes to origami_fun.com, maryannfraser.com, and Pucca’sArron from diy.afmsg.net for the owls; Perry Bailey and Frantisek Grebenicek for the squirrels; and Ching-YunHung, Fumiaki Shingu, and one unknown (sorry!) for the deer.
This recipe is another oldie but goodie, I think from an aunt who loved pistachios. Back in the day when Mom entertained frequently, this cake could be quickly put together from what were her pantry staples. The only trick is to use the largest Cool Whip you can find, both to ensure that the frosting isn’t grainy and to have enough for filling and topping. I’ve also served this cake for Easter because the color works so well for that occasion, too.
