Trifle is always a popular holiday dessert- it feeds a crowd and is made well ahead of time, with no last minute preparation. Frozen berries are an economical alternative to the usual fresh berries- and they are always ripe.
Strawberry Dulce de Leche Trifle
Whole Wheat Scones
This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Mincemeat Pinwheel Cookies
Pinwheel cookies are a Christmas classic. This version uses pre-rolled puff pastry as the dough, and seasonal mincemeat as the filling. Much easier than the traditional version with two colours of home-made cookie dough stacked and rolled.
Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cookies
Melted chocolate makes this drop cookie extra delicious. Look for dried cherries in the bulk area of the grocery store.
Chocolate Raspberry Panini
A dessert sandwich? Why not! Chocolate and raspberry are a classic combination, even better when served warm in a panini sandwich.
Cranberry Flaxseed Muffins
If you have a coffee grinder, grind the flaxseeds in it in batches. You may want to keep a coffee grinder just for grinding seeds and nuts.
Banana Chocolate Chip Spring Rolls
Spring rolls are normally deep-fried, but these dessert spring rolls are baked to crispy golden perfection. Sprinkle with sifted icing sugar just before serving, if desired.
