Holiday Desserts

Close your eyes and anticipate the sights, sounds, and aromas of the winter holiday season...

There's no better way to meet the requirements for holiday hospitality than with a delicious dessert recipe. Good ones are festive, a bit extravagant (or so they seem), and extraordinarily delicious. Some grace the center of your holiday table and are rich and traditional, while others provide a satisfying end to a special meal. And those of us who have kids are always on the lookout for recipes that can put little hands to good use.

If you don’t have a lot of time, you can still create a delightful baked dessert to serve holiday guests. Whip up a batch of Pecan Snowballs (rolled in confectioner’s sugar, they melt in your mouth like snowflakes). Or, in about the same time, you can make a batch of the always-popular Almond Cookies.

If you enjoy baking, try one of these holiday recipes that showcase the outstanding flavor of Simply Organic Vanilla and Almond Extracts:

Plum puddingPlum Pudding
While the ingredient list looks daunting, plum pudding is easy to make—much like mixing up a batch of stuffing. Once it’s in the steamer, you don’t even have to check on it for a few hours. Serve with a hard sauce (rum for adults, orange for the kids).

Orange Cardamom Bells
Kids love making the bell shapes (no cookie cutters needed) and adding the clappers. Try this recipe instead of your regular sugar cookie recipe for other shapes, too.

Coconut rum trufflesCoconut Rum Truffles
These rum delicacies are an adult dessert! They are surprisingly simple—though messy—to make and perfect for prepare-ahead entertaining. To give as a gift, pack each in paper candy cups, then place in a pretty tin.

Cream Cheese Wreath Cake with Maple Glaze
Cream cheese, maple glaze and holiday decorations put a new twist on old-fashioned pound cake, whose recipe once read: 1# butter, 1# sugar, 1# flour, 1# eggs and flavoring.
