Holiday Desserts Made Easy

So you will are super busy being Santa’s Little Helper and you also need to be the families head chef as well. For any ordinary person this would be impossible but you have your trusty mates on hubpages to provide you easy guides to successful easy holiday desserts.

Perhaps the easiest of your desserts is making Christmas cookies. You probably have your great grandmother’s recipe memorized but of you do not or you would prefer to try another recipe I have provided videos with instructions for this purpose. And I have provided several so you will have an index of cookie recipes on this hub for your reference.

The GingerBread House

I am not Frank Lloyd Wright at GingerBread Houses but I have made them before. They are by no means a simple task but one which if you have the time and inclination you can make something you can truly be pour of. But you have to have the courage and vision to complete one. I use to sketch mine out before I would make them. It helps if you have a plan when making a gingerbread house but that was before the You Tube phenomena. Now you can just learn how to do it from the Internet. So I have included two Gingerbread Houses recipes for you to attempt if you so choose. The Gingerbread Houses go great with homemade egg nog. Remember to be patient and enjoy this craft or it will not be worth it for you.

In Conclusion

The Holidays should be a lot of fun but they are also a lot of work. And we all seek to make exceptionally special each year for our friends and our family. Technology has made that easier for you to accomplish in less time by providing you with the articles like this one with easy dessert ideas for your family feast.

Of most important is not what you have or eat this holiday season but that you are with your friends, family and loved ones. Time is the most precious commodity we all have and each day is another day we lose.

And have very happy holidays.

      Hi GoodLady,

      Lovely to hear from your. It is a good project with your granddaugthers. I am a bit obessive compulsive about my gingerbread houses as I am going for the architeture award instead of just enjoying the project.

      Please let me know how it turns out.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      cute and IF my little granddaughter visits i think we'll make a gingerbread house; just hope to find the ingredients in our local village shops; that's the real challenge. e are fine on Italian specialties here, but I love traditional things too
