It was the first time I was hosting my family's Christmas morning festivities and I wanted to make something special. This is a conglomeration of several recipes including, gingerbread, waffles, pancakes, bread, and a few glimpses of holiday ideas I caught from various food channels. I made them a few times with a tweak here and there until I was VERY happy with the result. In the process I found that they are almost as good frozen then reheated (though they loose a bit of their fluffiness). I also learned that my 2 year old LOVED them! This is a recipe that everyone can add their own twist to make it their own. Enjoy!
