What are you making for Christmas dessert this year?

I can't make up my mind on what to make for Christmas Eve and Day desserts. Anything is on the table. What are you making this year?

  1. I think I will make "Meyer Lemon Budino" from the Epicurious site and pecan pie. Guests can then choose between a "light" dessert and a richer dessert. My big decision now is whether to make just whipped cream or a mango sauce for the budino.

    1. i'm playing christmas day, so...

      mango genoise/chiffon roll bite-sized
      something with pineapples since i was just gifted two
      ginger curd
      white chocolate malt cookies
      and maybe a ricotta grape pie with a balsamic glaze

        Emme, where can I find the recipe for
        "white chocolate malt cookies" ? I especially like that malt flavor in sweets.

        1. re: blue room

          Those cookies sound so good, I couldn't wait for a response ;-) I found this recipe

          1. re: just_M

            sorry i've been tinkering with a recipe. when i have it set, i'll post again, but at the moment, it's pretty different from the linked recipe, but that recipe looks good too!

            1. re: Emme

              Looking forward to your recipe Emme. Nothing better than an already tested and tweaked, sure thing!

      2. We have Bourbon Balls ready to go for the family.

        1. We have a large Panettone so we will make it into Bread Pudding. Ina Garten and Giada both have recipes. We will serve it with two sauces.

          1. I am making sticky toffee pudding, and also serving assorted home made cookies, struffoli, and a cheese board. If I have any energy left, I may make casateddi.

              Qu'est que c'est casateddi? Italian baking is a weak point for me.

                1. re: Emme

                  I think that the last two recipes are closest to what I make, but interestingly, they were never made for Easter in our house, only for Christmas!
