I don't think I have ever had sugar plums.  We will be eating dinner at my sons home. They are doing the cooking, as they wanted.  My daughter has Thanksgiving and my son has Christmas.  That's one of the advantages of being the grandparents.

Way to go. They look simply delicious. I keep thinking about the fruitcake you described weeks ago.

Last evening, seriously Friday, I had a pan of confection in process targeting the magical 237 degrees when the rep from Back at You Media called. Took my eyes off the stove for 30 seconds and the pot overflowed instantly filling the house with burnt sugar smoke and a gooey mess that persisted well into the night.

Today, I have in my possession a special made carrot cake as my Plan B. Everyone will LOVE it!

Have a Merry Christmas.
