This Christmas marked the 10th one without my mom. Christmas was her most favorite holiday of the year. She would decorate the house from top to bottom and we would not bake Christmas cookies we would make these things call struffoli. It is yummy fried dough covered then in honey and sprinkles. We made these every Christmas without fail even the last year she was with us. She would enlist the help of a half dozen of James and my friends. Plus she would have friends come over to help or to just watch the child labor work for pizza and a taste of those little golden fried pieces of dough. Those are some of my best Christmas memories from growing up. So this year I decided to start the tradition with Ty and C. It was a great success and fun!!! Here are a few pictures from our struffoli making day.
