"Soooooo, one year, I was dating my girlfriend (soon to be wife), Johnna, and she took me to her family’s yearly Christmas party. One of the traditions they have is a baked goods swap where everyone brings their favorite dish. I knew I had to make something good ‘cause everyone knew I was on TV. So I made some snowball cookies with pecans, and I crossed my fingers and hoped they were gonna be good. Because if they weren’t, people would think I was a fraud.
And, lo and behold, they were delicious! Everyone loved them and now I have to bake them every year. I always make sure to bake extra, because I eat a few dozen before they’re even out the door.
To send these to loved ones, pack them wrapped in tissue paper and bubble wrap." —Duff Goldman
