Traditional Christmas Desserts
Channel your inner Charles Dickens and place one of these elegant and traditional Christmas desserts at your table.
You'll be surprised just how easy they can be.
Yule Log Cake
My easy make ahead yule log cake can be prepped in advance and stored in the fridge until Christmas dinner.
Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce
Homemade Gingerbread House
The most classic, most traditional Christmas cookie of them all has got to be a gorgeous homemade gingerbread house.
If you've never tried this incredible tradition with your kids, be sure to stop by my recipe and see just how easy it can be:
I think a cake makes an excellent Christmas dessert choice. In our family, we just call it a Birthday Cake for Jesus!
These are excellent and worthy options for your holiday menu.
Almond Crunch Cake
This elegant sponge cake is covered in whipped cream and a toffee crunch candy with slivered almonds. You can make several elements of the almond crunch cake in advance and then just assemble before serving.
Tres Leches Cake
This cinnamon topped tres leches cake is truly a dessert for any occassion.
It's a perfect make ahead party dessert since it needs time to soak up all that three milks goodness.
Classic Almond Cake
This easy almond sheet cake can be dressed for any occasion.
For Christmas try sprinkling mini chocolate chips over the top or add a few festive sprinkles to the almond icing before it sets.
I love to make a pie for Christmas since you can make them ahead and just keep them in the fridge before serving.
Easy Pecan Pie
With just a touch of bourbon in the mix and an easy store bought pie crust, this pecan pie can be made the day before and be just as delicious.
Oreo Cream Pie
This easy Oreo cream pie just takes a few minutes to prep, can definitely be made ahead, and is the most thoughtful thing to add to a Christmas dessert buffet for the picky eaters at your table.
It uses an easy oreo cookie crust and is so cool and creamy.
Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee
If you've never tried making homemade vanilla bean creme brulee, Christmas is the time!
With a hint of orange to the vanilla custard, this would be an elegant and easy make ahead dessert for Christmas dinner.
No Bake Christmas Desserts
Sometimes a no bake Christmas dessert is just what you need to balance your busy schedule and all the holiday prep work you've got on your hands.
These sweet treats are always a winner in my book.
This rich and creamy cannoli dip tastes amazing for Christmas with mini chocolate chips and chopped pistachios on top.
Banana Pudding (No Bananas!)
If you've ever been to a party in the south, you'll know how crucial the banana pudding is!
Not sure it belongs at Christmas? Well have I got a trick for you. Make my banana pudding with no bananas and it fits right in at the holiday table!
