Default What's your favorite Christmas dessert?

Trying to decide what to make this year. There's the usual pumpkin pie/roll, apple and pecan pies, etc. Maybe something different....an assortment of cookies? What do you like to find on the dessert table?

We are having our family Christmas tonight. For my sanity, I make as much ahead as I can so I made a Cheery cheese pie, cupcakes decorated like an elf for the kids, and an ice cream pie in a chocolate cookie crust to be served with homemade hot fudge. Whatever you make, enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Every year I have to make what our family refers to as 'our favourite'. It is a 1960's ice box dessert made with chocolate cookie crumb crust and a custardy whipped cream filling- light and not sweet. My Mom made it every year and now it is my turn. I think of her as I am working in the kitchen, and remember Christmases past. I can give you the recipe if you like.

We have specific desserts for each holiday.

For Thanksgiving, we have pies, apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, and everyone's favorite, mystery pecan.

For Christmas, we have red velvet cake.... it's red, you know. And, we always have trays of cookies.

For New Years, we have cheesecake..... there are so many flavors to choose from but Amaretto Almond is my favorite.

For Easter, it's Carrot cake.

My specialty is desserts..... I can make a lot of them.

Happy Holidays, everyone.
