Choose a Christmas Dessert Recipe

Since Christmas is always right around the corner and it sneaks up on us every year, I like to plan ahead with a special Christmas dessert recipe to serve for family and guests over the holiday season.

Christmas reminds me of spending time with family, good company and delicious desserts. Of course the holiday comes with the traditional Christmas cookies, but what about other desserts? Why not whip up some easy Christmas desserts that are unexpected for your family and holiday guests.

      When we were kids, my mom made sugar cookies that were pushed into a mold of Santa, Christmas tree, star, stocking with toys, etc. She let us help decorate them. Using a cheap craft brush, we'd 'paint' egg white over an area then sprinkle colored sugar on it. She would frost Santa's beard and the fur on his hat. I miss those days, long gone.

      (But I wouldn't mind a generous serving of that nutmeg cheesecake! Yummy.)
