Christmas desserts are the course which everyone is secretly waiting for. I mean, who doesn't love desserts? I know I do!
What are traditional Christmas sweets?
Traditions vary across different countries. In the UK, mince pies are enjoyed as a Christmas dessert. In continental Europe, gingerbread cookies are often consumed.
On top of that, it's not uncommon to see pumpkin, pecan, apple pie or sponge cake served with whipped cream on the typical US dining table.
In Scandinavia, a type of sweetened milk rice is consumed.
However, I think all regions enjoy Christmas cookies, regardless of the type of cookie dough used to make them.
Each region has its own traditional holiday dessert, and they're all delicious in their own way. What are the most traditional desserts served in your home country?
