10 Festive Holiday Desserts for the Season

December 08, 2023

What’s your favorite part of the winter season? Maybe it’s trimming the tree with sentimental ornaments collected through the years, driving around your neighborhood checking out the lights, or baking red-and-green sprinkled sugar cookies with the kiddos. For us, it’s the holiday meal, with overflowing plates of oven-roasted ham, scalloped potatoes, veggies, and delicious desserts from gingerbread to pumpkin pie perched atop the family table.  

Since store-bought sweets can be loaded with corn syrup, sugar, and all manner of unwanted ingredients, we love to make and bake our own. Besides being able to control all the components that go into your dessert, you'll also fill your home with fragrant baking scents of cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa throughout the season. Live your most wonderful holiday life, and satisfy the whole crowd of family & friends, by whipping up one of these mouthwatering holiday dessert recipes made with your favorite pantry staples.
