Holiday Baking at its Best!

Every holiday I am asked to bake some wonderfully delicious dessert and although I am up for the challenge most of the time, it is a bit overwhelming for me.  Now you may wonder why its overwhelming, well because I know whatever I make this holiday has to be better than the last holiday. So I have been looking at recipes and checking out different web sites for recipes for weeks, trying to find the perfect dessert for Christmas day.

Here are some of the wonderful dessert recipes I have found.

Joy The Baker, one of my favorite bakers on the net, offers many recipes almost daily. Over at they have a recent post of Delicious Holiday Recipes From Joy The Baker. She has just recently posted a Glazed Lime Cake, Peppermint Meringues, Peanut Butter Fudge Treats and Cranberry Coffee Cake, which I tried and loved!

All Recipes has a section of Christmas Recipes with Christmas Cake, Peppermint Brittle, Icelandic Christmas Cake and many more recipes.

Check out Martha Stewart’s 48 Heavenly Holiday Desserts, from Grand Raspberry Trifle to Gingerbread Linzertorte to a Fig Holiday Roll.

Here is a favorite Holiday dessert recipe that you will surely enjoy!

  1. Deanna,
    It is fun to bake new recipes and try new things, but one thing I love about Christmas is tradition. Once a year I make my Grandma’s chocolate balls and mail the to my family. Everyone looks forward and would be so disappointed if I sent something new. I like to bake Dan’s grandma’s sugar cookies, and my mom’s Lincoln Logs, so all the boys can laugh at how they look more like dog doo that logs of wood. Of course, they devour them as they make fun.

    Anyway, don’t stress too much. Tradition is great too and can even make some desserts more special. So, whatever you choose, it will be great. Please be sure to post a picture after wards so we can all see how it turns out.
    Blessings, Tammy
