Not sure these fit, but for me they do since i really only eat these things during the holidays:

Deviled eggs
Cheese ball (with lots of pecans and jalapenos)

Way, way south.
My ex's grandmother used to make this 7 layer apricot tort that was one of the tastiest holiday treats ever. Trying to get the recipe off of her now. I also really like those Hungarian raspberry and/or apricot Kolaches cookies.

For Thanksgiving I always bake my husband an apple/pecan pie. At Christmas I usually make some rolled cookies that are frosted for a cookie swap. Hardly anyone makes them any more so they're usually a hit.

As for me, it makes my day if someone makes homemade chocolate-covered peanut butter balls!

MBGuy, found a recipe for "Serbian Apricot Torte (Torta Praska)" It looks like it's only 3 layers, but you can make them a bit thinner.

Or, you can make 2 layers and cut them in half horizontally, after they have cooled.

When I was young, my mom used to make something called "Divinity" and yes it was divine! Now that I'm grown I realize it was so good because it is basically liquid sugar with some vanilla that's been whipped with egg whites and allowed to cool and congeal into a fluffy piece of vanilla fudge-like candy. But oh so good.

Thanks Rocky and DQ. I looked that up, but it didn't have a picture so I wasn't exactly sure that was it, but I found another page that showed something with the same name that looked similar. I think the 7 layer thing was maybe a derivative of that recipe, with a couple layers of crushed walnuts, filo dough, and apricot, with an icing on top. If I am able to secure the recipe, I'll post it up.
