Christmas Recipes Needed

We are including recipes in the forthcoming Christmas Mosaic! I need help finding a few authentic recipes that go with some of the picture books, recipes that you or your family use at Christmas time. For example in the story The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey, the widow brings Mr. Toomey a plate of molasses cookies. We are including "Grandma Maher's Molasses Cookies" contributed by Julie (nee Maher) of Julie's Stuff. This "Grandma" happens to be my husband's Grandma, too!

Here is what we need:
1. A good reliable fruitcake recipe FOUND
2. Lebanese "Nest of a Bird" or "Eat and be Grateful;" failing that, a good baklava FOUND
3. Oyster stew FOUND
4. Currant cakes FOUND
5. Wibele (cookie) Found out this cookie is only made by one company in Germany and there is no recipe. Please email me if you know otherwise!
6. Your favorite Christmas cookie Thanks to all who contributed recipes!!

I could find some of these online (or in my "wall" of cookbooks), but I want to include recipes that people have as part of their family Christmas traditions. Please email me (sales@hillsideeducation.com) if you want to contribute. Include the recipe, directions, and any tidbit about the history of the recipe or how you use it as part of your family's Christmas traditions.

Thank you!!!
