Christmas Baking Inspiration

No Christmas is complete without all of the special Christmas desserts.  These are some of the special desserts that we look forward to in our home.  Each of our children makes a dessert to share with the family in the days leading up to Christmas.  Now with 3 kids gone from home our plan is to package up a tin of these treats for them to take home with them to remind them of us and past Christmases as they forge their new futures.  Of course, the tourtiere isn’t a dessert but I thought I’d add our family favourite anyway.

Christmas is a time of indulgence and gift giving, of family gatherings and laughter, but it is also a time to remember a little baby born in a manger.  May the busyness of the days leading up to Christmas allow for a few quiet minutes on Christmas Day of sitting and contemplating the beautiful gift of Jesus in a manger and in our hearts.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours 🙂
