North Carolina’s Best Christmas Recipe Comes From This Small Town
I ran across this recipe just in time. There is a “bring your best Christmas dish” party this weekend and I had no idea what I was going to bring and now I do. According to TasteofHome.com, North Carolina’s best Christmas recipe comes from this small town. The good news is, it does not look complicated. And “not complicated” is my vibe.
Before we get into this award winning recipe, let me tell you what my family absolutely must have not only Christmas but Thanksgiving as well. We call it “Aunt Debbie’s” Sweet Potato Casserole. Do I actually make this? No I do not. This is actually the wonder of my friend Debbie at work. I imagine she starts with the best sweet potatoes she can find, whip them into a frenzy and then top them with some kind of magical mixture. There are pecans in there, brown sugar and lots of butter. Debbie’s recipe should be considered for North Carolina’s best Christmas recipe. Alas it was not. This North Carolina recipe looks amazing.
Taste of Home scoured the country for the best Christmas recipes. Who gets the job as taster for these things? North Carolina’s best Christmas recipe comes from this tiny town. The award goes to Lois Hill from Thomasville, North Carolina. Her Swirled Mint Cookies will jingle all your bells. Lois tells Taste of Home,”No one will believe that these rich and buttery cookies are light, but they are! With their colorful swirls, each one of these minty, sugary bites has its own look.” Not only do they carry all the essential ingredients for glee, they are also beautiful. This recipe is sure to make you the queen of the cul de sac at your Christmas cookie exchange. For the recipe, you can get it here from Taste of Home.
