Top 10 Desserts to Make This Holiday Season

This season, we dive into a whirlwind of holiday cheer and to-do lists. The days have become shorter and it feels like you have less and less time to make the holiday season a memorable one. What makes a holiday season memorable? It could be an ugly sweater party or the holiday card that always features one person looking away from the camera.

Many memories are made in the kitchen baking desserts; you can lick the frosting off a spoon or eat cookie dough. From pies and cookies to traditional drinks and pastries, dessert has been a staple of the holiday season. Desserts evoke childlike bliss and bring people together. So we’ve put together our top 10 favorite desserts to bring joy and togetherness during the holidays.
