12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

Favorite Holiday Recipe

Here are some of my favorite snacks my mom always makes for Christmas!

Orange Blossoms

Prepare 1 box of yellow cake mix as directed on box. Cook in small mini muffin pans at 350 degrees. After they have cooked and slightly cooled, mix 2/3 cups orange juice, 1 box confectioner sugar, and 6 tablespoons of lemon juic then dip the muffins in the mixture.

Crackers Deluxe

Place saltines on a cookie sheet in a single layer (I recommend covering the entire cookie sheet). Baste the crackers with 1/4 lb. of melted butter. Top the crackers with shredded cheddar cheese. You should not be able to see much cracker surface. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Place in a 150 degree oven for 8 hours. My mom usually does this overnight.

Sausage Balls

1 lb. sausage
10 oz. shredded cheese (usually sharp cheddar)
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 teaspoon paprika

Mix together room temperature sausage and cheese. Add Bisquick and paprika and mix well. Form into small balls and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. My mom usually doubles the recipe and uses a package of hot sausage and a package of mild.
