The holidays are here and pretty soon your family and friends will be gathering at your  home to share the holidays with you.  Here are some easy holiday appetizers shared by a Delilah listener.

Dear Delilah,

My favorite holiday recipes are ones I can make ahead of time, so when my family and friends arrive I can enjoy spending time with them rather than being stuck in the kitchen. When I host holiday parties, I really enjoy just putting out a big spread of appetizers. That way, my guests can mingle, sip on champagne or cocktails and nibble. Plus, it’s easy to ask guests to pitch in and bring an appetizer as well.

Here are a few of my favorite holiday recipes.

Pumpkin Amaretti Beggar’s Purse

Buy premade pumpkin amaretti Sacchette (I get mine from and boil them for three minutes. Then fry in a few Tbsp. of olive oil just long enough to turn slightly golden on the bottom. I then fry some sage in brown butter and put it in a bowl for dipping. These pretty finger food ravioli can be made ahead of time and served at room temperature.
