15 Holiday Desserts

A delicious collection of holiday dessert recipes from food bloggers | gimmesomeoven.com

Baked goods are my special vice, and there’s no shortage of them around this time of year.  (Give me all your sugar cookies!)  There’s something particularly magical about the kinds of desserts that grace our holiday tables. I mean, how often do we have gingerbread, peppermint or eggnog flavored things? The answer is — not often enough. These desserts with their festive flavors and familiar aromas hearken back to our childhood. We can’t help but recall making gingerbread cookies with grandma, sipping on some eggnog while adorning the tree with your favorite ornaments, helping mom make fudge for the neighbors. Maybe that’s why they occupy such a sweet spot in our hearts.

From a riff on the old winter standby, hot buttered rum, to a jazzed up gingerbread cake, we’ve got 15 holiday desserts that you should totally indulge in this season. We promise they will make your spirit bright.

So bake, eat, and be merry!
