95 Holiday Desserts to Make The Festivities Sweeter

By Christy PiƱa of Woman's Day | Slide 1 of 76: When it comes to delicious Christmas recipes, there's nothing more special than Christmas cookies, Christmas cakes, and Christmas pies. In other words: Christmas desserts are just the best. Most people have at least one or two family recipes that they make year after year, but why not switch things up and add a few new desserts to the rotation? Though the holiday season can seem too hectic and overwhelming to add in one more activity, cooking a new recipe can be a great way to relax and spend some time away from your phone, television, or computerPicture it: You're in your favorite cozy clothing, there's a fire crackling in the other room, and Christmas songs are playing through the speakers. You can put your phone on airplane mode, print out one of these easy Christmas dessert recipes, and spend some time singing along to your favorite Christmas albums, whipping up a new recipe, and not thinking about the stressors of the holiday season at all. Even better, you could use this relaxing time as a way to create a homemade gift (everyone loves receiving a sweet treat, after all) for a friend, neighbor, or family member. Simply find a nice Christmas tin, pack it full of the home baked goodies, write a small note to go with the gift and boom, you're done! Not only have you found some time to relax and unwind after a stressful day of balancing work, family, and the holiday season, but you've also checked a gift off your Christmas list.
