5 Christmas Desserts from Around the World

Our pickup truck is overflowing with donations and our bedroom is now gift central (shh, don’t tell Ava). Thus is the cycle of life.

Today, mostly because I can’t stop eating the candy meant for our stockings, I’m sharing 5 dessert recipes from around the world which are perfect – in my opinion – for Christmastime. So, put on your aprons! Let’s bring a little piece of the world to our families this holiday season.

P.S. Stay tuned … all week I’ll be sharing recipes from around the world that’ll fit right in on your Christmas table… as well as a look at our gingerbread houses (We’ll start back up with cooking Djibouti next week).

1. Bajan Christmas Puddin’ (Pound Cake with Cherries)

2. Llokume (Turkish Delight)

3. Sacher-torte (Austrian Chocolate Tart with Apricot Jam)

4. Chilean Crema de Limon (Chilean Lemon Ice Cream)

5. Baked Milk Custard (Leche Asada)

      Thanks Jessica.. it was nice and creamy thanks to a water bath. A little cinnamon or nutmeg on top really adds a special touch.

  2. Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog
    and wished to mention that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing in your feed and I am hoping
