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.

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.
