We know this isn’t an easy question. We’re drooling too; it’s okay. But if you had to pick one of the Christmas desserts below, which would you choose?
Would you choose a gingerbread cookie, perhaps shaped like a gingerbread man with an adorable icing face? Or a moist, melt-in-your-mouth piece of gingerbread? What about a beautifully-made chocolatey Yule Log? Or Sticky Toffee Pudding, a dessert you want to stop eating but just can’t resist another bite! As we said, we know this isn’t an easy decision.
Tell us in the poll below which dessert you’d choose. If you’d choose none of the below options, tell us your favorite Christmas (or holiday) dessert in the comments below. Make us drool even more, why don’t ya!
My mom made the best Christmas sugar cookies! All my friends would come over just to eat cookies!
I like pie (razzleberry, pumpkin, blackberry, cherry, blueberry, etc.), crisps (all flavors), and we usually have cake (it is my wife’s Birthday).
Cherry pie a la mode.
Pecan Pie! Mom always made them during the holiday season.
For a touch of the Old Country, I usually make lefse (Norwegian tortillas made from potato) every year; to be eaten with butter and brown sugar (as one example).
Our family tradition in my wife’s Aunt Pat’s chocolate cake with fudge frosting. She passed the recipe on to our daughter. We should have it this year but it’s not to be. Sometime is 2021 we’ll have that celebration and celebrate with all our family traditions.
Dinah Shore’s pecan pie recipe. I’m making it today.
Christmas coconut cake.
I’m English, of course I have Christmas pudding. I also love Stollen and Panettone. I dont usually serve that to guests though. My husband hates it.
Im making a low carb apple crisp for him
My cracker toffee is much in demand at Christmas! And it needs to be made with saltine crackers to provide that salty and sweet goodness–not with graham crackers.
my grandma’s sugar cookies, my oatmeal raisin cookies, just about anyone’s choc chip cookies.
I don’t even know what stollen and panettone are! Southerners tend to have pecan pie, peanut butter balls, and coconut cake at Christmas!
+1000 on the coconut cake!
I, too, was born and raised on southern fare, however, having lived in the Pacific Northwest for 50 years I have learned to expand my palate to many new experiences.
FRUIT CAKE !!!!! EGGNOG !!!!!
Yes. I agree a good fruit cake.
Bûche de Noël (Yule Log). I cannot find them anywhere local. To make it worse, when you ask for them people look at you like you have 5 heads. I used to make them myself, but just do not have the space any longer. This year the (easy to make) hot cocoa bombs are the “thing to make” for a Christmas treat.
My cookies. Chocolate chip (my granddaughter…”Nonna makes the best cookies”, sparkle cookies, like eating chocolate truffles (found recipe in LA Times when traveling many moons ago, from a bakery, basically chocolate, butter & ground almonds, gluten free…call them Katie cookies for my step-daughter who has Celiac) and snow-balls which I started making in honor of my oldest sister who passed away 10 years ago. She made them every Christmas.
give me a white Christmas cake ANY day!!!!! or some chocolate almond bark.
Dark chocolate almond bark is my favorite. Niece and her first husband ran the family’s candy store long ago. There DARK chocolate almond bark was the best. The last few years, even working as a journeyman electrician, she started making the almond bark and selling in small packages at boutiques. If a batch doesn’t come out right or when she finally got to rescue some from a store that had closed temporarily due to virus, we were the lucky recipients of the “bad” chocolate.
Divinity, pralines, pecan logs, millionaires, sand tarts, Swedish tea log, molasses cookies and then maybe a sugar cookie along with all the pies made.
I like a good mincemeat pie. No one makes those anymore…
I agree! Luckily my Mom’s recipe still remains in the family and one of my siblings will make a mincemeat pie occasionally.
Another English favorite. Haven’t had one in years
# 1 is good fruit cake–there are many terrible versions out there. Claxton Bakery at WalMart is a good one.
# 2 are the cheap danish butter cookies
#3 was Potato Candy made by my mom. Way too many carbs for me to eat now. (Pinwheels made of mashed potato, powdered sugar, peanut butter.)
👍 on the potato candy. Haven’t had in many many years but I’m sure I’m still working those carbs off years later. 😊
