Photo of the Month Bonus: The Tourtière

While I don’t consider myself a baker, every year I make a special Christmas dish, the tourtière. This is a savory pie with ground pork, potatoes, and spices.

It all started with a joke when Mom said I should get in touch with my happy, French-Canadian roots. I read about this tradition and tried to make one. The kids loved it and asked me to make more. Now I make many every year and freeze them for holiday meals and gifts.

This year I tried making my own pie crust and have come to the conclusion that life is too short 🙂

What are some of your holiday food traditions?
