What kind of food do you like to eat in winter?

Q: What kind of food do you like to eat in winter?

A: There’s no food that I like better in the winter time. The holiday season is baking season for people in western countries though, so I spend a lot of time baking traditional things like Christmas cookies, pies, bread and candy. Probably my favorite holiday treat is pumpkin roll. My aunt’s family is from Finland, so she had many different recipes. Her pumpkin roll (a thin pumpkin cake, spread with cream cheese frosting, then rolled up and popped in the freezer) is one of my favorites, because I remember her making many of them as gifts every Christmas.

We usually have an apple or pear bread-like pastry for breakfast on Christmas morning, but sometimes I bake it the night before, so I don’t have to get up early on Christmas morning.
