Holiday Aromas

When I was a kid this would be the weekend that my mom would be baking. She would be making prune cake and pumpkin bread, zuchini bread and dutch apple pie (my personal favorite). There would be homemade rolls and she would make homemade fruitcake (which my entire family except for me seemed to adore). The fruitcake would not be ready to eat until Christmas though because it has to sit for 5 or 6 weeks steeped in brandy or whiskey.

The smells of these delicacies would go all through the house. It was absolutely wonderful. We didn't need scented candles in those days. There is nothing like the smell of fresh baked pumpkin pie to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Our house would look like a bakery there would be so much dessert sitting around - some waiting for Thanksgiving - others to be devoured on the spot! It was an absolutely delectable time of year.
