Easy and Tasty Holiday Desserts

November 21, 2014

395px-Baked_goods_and_sweetsusdaDesserts are something we love. So much so that October is national dessert month and during our holidays desserts come into their own measure of importance.

Here are a couple of easy and tasty desserts.

A coconut dessert is heavenly after a meal and a good three layer coconut dessert begins by mixing together a cube of margarine or butter, a cup of flour and ½ cup chopped pecans. Press this into a 9×13 pan and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. While that is baking combine an 8 ounce package of cream cheese with a half box of powdered sugar and a cup of whipped topping like Cool Whip. Pull the crust out and while it’s cooling, set these two aside to prepare the third layer by mixing two packages instant pudding (vanilla works well) 2 ½ cups milk and a half cup cream of coconut (look near the mixed drink section in stores). Take the cream cheese mixture and press into the cooled crust. Sprinkle with shredded coconut and chopped pecans. Top with the pudding mixture and more pecans. Refrigerate a couple hours before serving.

Another I really like for ease and holiday is making a white cake (inexpensive white cake is fine). While it’s baking prepare cherry or black cherry or lime gelatin. When the cake is done take a fork and poke holes randomly in the cake from half to ¾ the way down. Carefully pour the gelatin mixture over these holes and when you’ve used it all put the cake in the refrigerator. Pull out and top with frosting and red and green sprinkles. The down side to this is if left out it can get soggy, but it’s such a good and easy dessert, and when cut the gelatin puts red or green color down into the white cake.

These are just two favorite desserts for the holiday season. Enjoy!
