Is there any time of the year better for baking than the Christmas season? The cold weather makes firing up the oven much more agreeable than in the summer months, and the nostalgia of the season makes baking your old favorites so much fun. Then, too, you can take baked goods to parties, serve them at holiday meals, and even give them as gifts. As lovely as the old recipes are, though, sometimes you’re in the mood for something new. If you’re looking for some new desserts to wow your friends and family this year, we’ve got Christmas dessert recipes that are sure to please.
- Cookies are an old standard, but they come in an amazing array of options. Maybe you’ll enjoy making these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies topped with powdered sugar, or perhaps these gluten-free Gingerbread Cookies are more of what you’d like to make for the holidays. Snickerdoodles are a crowd pleaser, but if you don’t feel like baking and are looking to slip a little fruit into the holidays, these Strawberry Christmas Trees atop chocolate sandwich cookies are an adorable way to do it.
- Cupcakes and brownies are perfect for parties. Brownies cut into triangles instead of squares can easily become Brownie Christmas Trees with some creative icing. With crystallized sugar and a few treats, you can easily turn ordinary cupcakes into Snowman Cupcakes.
- It’s easy to find treats that meet dietary restrictions. If you’re going gluten-free, feel free to indulge in this Christmas Pavlova. If you’ve cut out dairy, we’d like to offer these Coconut Macaroons as a lovely, easy, dairy-free option.
- Sometimes, you just want something a little unique. Make traditional peppermint bark into this festive Snowman Bark for a fun gift, or satisfy a salty-sweet craving with these Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Potato Chips. Chocolate Covered Pretzels can be very festive when dressed with white chocolate and red icing, and it only takes some green food coloring and a bit of imagination to turn Rice Krispy Treats into fun Christmas Trees. If you’re looking for a sweet treat for your Christmas brunch, try this Eggnog French Toast.
