Get cooking — Christmas dessert recipes recap

By: 4 December 2010 3 Comments

On Dec. 1, First Arkansas News writer Marci Nobles started posting Christmas dessert recipes and has committed to putting up a new one daily through Christmas Eve.

We’re talking about a lot of recipes, for sure. Missing one is easy because, of course, people are busy this time of year. Of course, a convenient way to keep up with everything that goes on around here is to subscribe to our email updates — quite a few people have already done that, so why not join them and get the latest news from us delivered to your inbox every morning?

For those who stubbornly refuse to subscribe to our email updates, we’re going to make it a bit more convenient to find Marci’s recipes. How? we’re going to post up the links to them every weekend.

Here are the recipes that were posted this week:

* Snickerdoodles — cookies that are great any time of the year but are particularly dandy during the Christmas season.

* Grandma’s fruit cookies — don’t confuse these with fruitcake. Fruitcake sucks. Fruit cookies are great.

* Gumdrop cookies — one of the most indulgent desserts on the planet, but isn’t that OK this time of year?

* Rum balls — chocolate and rum have rarely been so great together.

More Christmas recipes here. Remember — check back every day from now through Christmas Eve for a new recipe.

Someone's in the kitchen with Marci!

    Your desserts look delicious and yet simple. I am going to try the rum balls. I work with Better Recipes and am always looking for new dishes to try. Right now I am focusing on Christmas desserts. Check out some of these. My favorites are Praline Pumpkin Torte and Slow Cooked Cranberry Bread Pudding Christmas Dessert Recipes
