I love to bake but being an empty nester (and having a husband who doesn’t eat a ton of sweets) I don’t bake as much as I used to. But during the holidays I bake a ton! I am known for my Christmas cookies but I love to do all sorts of baking.
Today I have lots of amazing desserts that will really inspire you to get your apron on and get in that kitchen!
Cream Cheese Pound Cake is perfection on a plate! Moist slices of tender pound cake with a delightfully golden brown top. This one-bowl recipe is easy to make, and just the thing to serve during the holidays or for any special occasion.
This easy Peppermint Dream Dessert is a no bake layered treat that everyone will enjoy. An Oreo cookie crust, peppermint cheesecake, crushed Andes Peppermint candies, white chocolate pudding, and Cool Whip make this something even Santa would prefer to eat over his cookies!
English Trifle is a Christmas classic. Layers of pound cake, creme anglaise and poached pears are soaked in two kinds of liqueurs then topped with fresh whipped cream for a show-stopping holiday dessert.
This eggnog cheesecake is the ideal holiday dessert. It's loaded with bourbon and set atop a crunchy gingersnap cookie crust. Real eggnog in the cheesecake batter gives that wonderfully creamy texture with hints of nutmeg to really remind you it is the holidays.
Arroz con Leche (or Mexican Rice Pudding) is a delicious Mexican holiday dessert made from simple ingredients including rice, milk, cinnamon, and sugar. It can be served hot or cold and is guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth.

This Chocolate Peppermint Marble Cake is a showstopper holiday dessert! A buttery cake with swirls of chocolate and peppermint that explodes with flavor. Of course, that drizzle of chocolate ganache sprinkled with crushed candy canes is what puts it over the top.
