Christmas Recipes and Cooking

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.

Traditional Christmas Pudding: If you want the full experience of a traditional Xmas you have to have a homemade pudding! This is boiled in a pudding basin but also works wrapped in calico.

Nuts and Bolts: These make a great nibbly for the table.

Nutty Chocolate fudge: Great for the Christmas sweets plates but also a fantastic gift.
