When I think of Christmas, one of the first things that comes to mind is Christmas cookies. And quite honestly, I get tired of them being “dessert” the whole season. I long for chocolate and elegance this time of year, but since everyone is busy, and has those extra cookies on hand, it seems to be the way dessert goes!
One of my favorite magazines is Real Simple. I like it because of the focus – simplicity in everything: cooking, decorating, entertaining and life! So it was no surprise when I realized my favorite, simple grocery shopping site had partnered with my favorite magazine. CobornsDelivers offers Real Simple recipes – complete with shopping lists for ordering!! Now you understand why I think this is a match made in heaven.
So this Christmas, if you’re looking for an alternative to traditional cookies, try serving up a fabulous dessert that is not only fresh and homemade, but also easy!
Here are a few to try – Gingersnap-Pear Cheesecake (my tip: drizzle caramel topping over each slice before serving) or Turtle Bars (my tip: spruce it up with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a mint sprig before serving).
I’m having company this weekend, and you can be sure I’ll be serving these great, easy recipes to my guests. And grinning all the while at how truly simple shopping and cooking can be.
