Here are a few classic yet rare desserts that should be created this holiday season.

A Southern favorite and a classic dessert many of us enjoy are apple fritters.

Sugar cookies with holiday designs are staple food items at every holiday function. Small Santa Claus cookies or Christmas Tree shaped cookies are always a great addition for the holidays. However, Florida Crystal is providing sugar cookies with a healthier vegan twist. Still able to showcase your favorite holiday design, these vegan sugar cookies have more flavor than you can expect. Check out the twist for the sugar cookie recipe and start preparing a few cookies to decorate on Christmas Eve.
Pudding, mouse, and custards are quick and easy desserts that Southern Belles, along with their children, can whip up. As a child, I loved being assigned to mixing up the whipping cream and this organic pumpkin cheesecake mousse recipe is what I know many kids will love to participate in. Flavored with a fall favorite, pumpkin, and the best topping for most desserts, whip cream, this recipe is definitely a must-try for the holiday season. So, grab the little ones and put them to work for this dessert treat!
A quick 10 minute recipe by Florida Crystals is the Pumpkin Brownie Bark. Infused with pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin seeds, this fall recipe is fit for the holiday season and also a great snack to munch on throughout the day. So follow the Florida Crystal recipe and make a batch of brownie bark to share with your guests, family, and friends.
As Winter comes into a full swing, we hope that you can incorporate these sweet treats and Florida Crystal flavorful suggestions into your holiday dessert list.
