30+ Christmas Desserts (Cakes, Pies, Pastries, Breads and Other Sweet Treats) from Around the World

I’m kicking off the Christmas holiday baking season today with 30 amazing recipes from around the world!

 

I’m not one to welcome Christmas decorations, music or much of anything else before Halloween but I DO start planning the delicious holiday sweet treats I want to make well before I buy any Halloween candy. I love Christmas baking season!

I’ve got several easy and delicious traditional Christmas desserts from around the world to share with you in the coming weeks – you’re going to LOVE them.

To kick things off, I asked food bloggers to share their favorite Christmas dessert recipes – cakes, pies, pastries, breads, cookies, and candies from around the world. Everything looks SO good – I want to make each and every recipe. There are easy Christmas desserts, traditional Christmas desserts, and a few unusual sweet treats for those of you who want to try something new.

Ok, let’s stop talking about and get right to these amazing Christmas desserts!
