An Edible Christmas Tree Idea

Many of you will be venturing out this week to get your holiday tree, and some of you have told me how you have adopted my childhood holiday tradition. When I was a little girl in Pula, my Grandpa would get a juniper berry bush and bring it home before Christmas. We used to decorate it with oranges, tangerines, candies and cookies that we baked.

When my grandchildren were small, I used to decorate our own little evergreen here in America a few weeks prior to Christmas with their favorite holiday candies and cookies, along with a few recipes from my own childhood. It has become a wonderful tradition that I hope they all pass on to their own children one day.
