Every year I have the good intention of preparing a new, Christmas recipe that has received rave reviews and looks delectable on the dinner table.  Alas, this is not the year - again :)

And that's okay.

Our menu this year ::

Christmas Dessert…

I am kind of stuck on this one and would love suggestions.  We do have plenty of Christmas cookies, but I was looking for a special, Christmas-y dessert.

Advent blessings!

  1. Sounds delicious, my friend!
    Your meals always are!
    We are having your sweet potatoes with ham and green bean casserole.
    Can't wait!
    For dessert we are having a simple but yummy birthday cake for Baby Jesus.
    It is more like a snack cake with a graham cracker crumb and chocolate chip topping.
    It is very simple, but good. I am working on a post for the recipe. : )
    Ok dinner isn't going to make itself!

    1. Oh a cake….I just saw one over at Waltzing Matilda that included white chocolate…that might be a good one. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Looks great! I have to admit I bought an apple pie from the store!! ;) But I'm also going to make a Key Lime Cake in honor of our new state!

    1. Key Lime Cake (pie)….you have to!! When we were in Key West, we had the famous Kermit's Key Lime and ours was on a stick, dipped in chocolate. Oh my word! Talk about rich and decadent. I couldn't eat all of it. Key Lime is an EXCELLENT idea for your Christmas dessert!

  3. You are making a wonderful feast, it all looks and sounds so delicious!

  4. Your meal looks wonderful!!

    Dessert? We have Candy Bar Pie (or now that we have so many, Candy Bar PieS!

    We only have this on Christmas, and the kids can't wait!

    1. Holy cow!! That looks totally Fat Free! ha ha ha. I bet the kids can hardly wait to sink their teeth into that delicious-looking dessert! Thank you for sharing it!

  5. We also make this cake for Christmas Eve:

    It's amazing...if you like chocolate.

    1. Oh, I think I like this one better, even. There's something so sweet about a dusting of powder sugar. And sour cream adds a special touch, too. I use sour cream in my cut outs. You know what I liked the most? How you described putting one candle on representing each of you. That is SO special :)

  6. Ok, one more: (you asked!)

    No picture for this one...I'll have to do that!

    Brownie Jubilee

    Brownie mix
    1 3.4 oz pkg vanilla pudding
    1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
    8 oz whip cream (or larger if you want)
    Cherry pie filling (I use 2 cans)

    Bake brownie mix according to package, bake and cool completely.
    Blend pudding and milk and mix in cream cheese til fluffy, fold in whip cream. Spread on top of brownies and refrigerate. Top with cherry pie filling.

    It's a really pretty dessert, the bright red makes it perfect for Christmas time. I've always made it for my book club Christmas party!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!


Thanks for stopping by!
