Christmas Desserts

Sweets are one of the best parts of the holiday season: Christmas dessert recipes are such a festive way to indulge. And, whether you're whipping up cakes, pies, or pudding, you can invoke the seasonal spirit of giving: Everyone's happy to receive fun dessert ideas as a hostess gift or goodie bag surprises. (Wrap a decorative bow around a box of homemade brownies and you're a hero.) Holiday baking is also a great time to spend with the family. Throw on an album of carols, light the tree, and get to work: Easy Christmas desserts like gingerbread men and buttery sugar cookies aren't going to decorate themselves!
