First off, this guy.
Are y’all following Fozzie the Fluffy Frenchie? The IG feed will give you all the feels. Teddy is super jealous.
Speaking of strong feelings: I hate fruitcake.
That’s not entirely true. I like a very light fruitcake, absolutely soaked in rum. It’s hard to find.
I like other desserts a lot more. I love Italian pastries at Christmas. Give me a cannoli over fruitcake any day of the week. We are lucky to have a gorgeous Italian bakery and deli not that far from where we live. So I can feast on this and this and this.
Also, rum balls.
I’ve made The Philly Crean Cheese Rum Ball since high school, when I made it with 1/4 bottle of overproof rum.
(Thanks, Patricia, for pointing out the Kraft online recipe weirdness. I’ve scanned my original cutout from the 1980s and added it here. I go heavier on the rum than suggested…)
They were runny but very popular.
Isn’t this sign perfect?
You can just buy a cake whenever you want. Isn’t being an adult awesome?
What is your dessert preference over the holidays?
