So I don’t know about you, but when I think of Christmas I think of all the yummy Christmas goodies I love to eat.
I also think about the ten pounds I’ll put on eating those yummy Christmas goodies, the pants that won’t fit because of it, and the hours of remorse I’ll feel, but that’s totally beside the point.
Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite Christmas goodies that are ALSO Lazy Mom Recipes! (You know you love me.)
Buuuuuut, I was too lazy to actually make these goodies and take pictures and write all kinds of witty stuff about them, so instead I’ll be showing you where to find these recipes around the world wide web (we do still call it that right? It suddenly seems so old fashion for some reason).
It’s terribly lazy of me to do it this way, but hey! It’s four days until Christmas and I’ve got company coming! And you haven’t seen the state of my house recently! And I’ve got some shopping left to do! And in the words of my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher last year… “You get what you get and don’t throw a fit!”
Beki over at The Rusted Chain posted a while back about Graham Cracker Toffee. It was a recipe my mom used to make, but everytime I asked my mom for the recipe she didn’t remember ever making them.
So anyway, when I saw Beki’s post about it I was thrilled!

Sausage Balls. I love ‘em. And they are another recipe my mom used to make for Christmas. AND, she actually remembers this one.
My next Christmas fav?
Holiday Pretzel Treats. Uh, YUM. These I adore, truly. And no, my mom didn’t used to make these. These are a more recent discovery, so she has no recollection of these little goodies and rightly so (this time).

How about one more?
This one isn’t a Lazy Mom Recipe per say (it has more than 5 ingredients) BUT it is so good and so easy to make I’m still calling it one.
Lady Fingers (or Rolled Pecan Cookies)
Lazy Dad’s family literally fights (and I mean fights) over these cookies. I grew up eating them too and they are definitely worth fighting over. No doubt about it.
I can’t eat them with pecans since I’m allergic to them, so I make them with walnuts instead OR you can leave the nuts out completely and they still taste just as good.
You can shape them into fingers, crescents, or balls. Or I guess whatever you feel like shaping them into.
No matter how you shape them, just EAT THEM. Mmm, mmm.
And there you have it. Four Christmas Goodies that I adore and are LAZY to make.
