Many of these Christmas recipes are ones my mother cooked for our family at Christmas, that I learnt to cook as a child and that my kids cook now too. One of my favourite part of Christmas as a child was the huge collection of sweets, like White Christmas and Rum Balls, we made, so I have added many of these to the list. All of these recipes are in our submitted recipes section of Aussie Cooking.

Puddings and Dessert Christmas Recipes
Pavlova: I don’t remember many Xmas dinners without a pavlova! The fruit you choose to decorate it can make it look very seasonal.
Small Date Pudding: Something to make a change from traditional Christmas pudding.
