Holiday baking traditions are something the Food Network stars hold close to their hearts.

Perhaps some of the most-memorable holiday moments are those when you and your loved ones are immersed in a holiday tradition. Whether it's trimming the tree or lighting the candles, there's something special about continuing a custom that's been handed down from generation to generation. On Food Network, some of our most-beloved holiday traditions revolve around baking.

With recipes passed down through generations, it's something the Food Network stars hold near to their hearts. Sometimes the holidays also offer the opportunity to reinvent those traditions and start new ones. Just see the Food Network Stars' Holiday Baking Traditions gallery to see what the stars do during the holidays.

Guy Fieri leaves most of the baking to his son Hunter. Alex Guarnaschelli basks in pie making. Michael Symon reminisces about making baklava with his mother. Damaris Phillips is a true fan of giving out Christmas candy. Read more from Sunny Anderson, Katie Lee, Geoffrey Zakarian, Maneet Chauhan, Ted Allen, Chris Santos and Anne Burrell. If you want to start your own holiday baking traditions, visit the Holiday Baking Championship page for ideas to get your new customs going.
