A Few of Our Favorite Holiday Treats

December 11, 2018

By Kath Dedon


Can you believe that Christmas is just two weeks away?

We don’t have desserts on a regular basis, but this is one time of year when we like to indulge in a few favorite treats. A few days ago Laura suggested that I should post some of our holiday favorites. I thought it was a great idea. So without further ado, here they are. (Just click on the names of the desserts for the recipe.)
