Usually, at this point in the Christmas season, I would have had at least one request for a particular dessert for Christmas dinner. This year, no requests and I'm at a loss as to what to make. And, I need to make whatever it is fairly soon because I know that The Husband will have commandeered the kitchen by Sunday afternoon.
So today I asked my family if they had any particular desire for one treat or another. Even Man-Child, the one with a major sweet tooth, the one that loves to be home when I'm baking so he can lick the batter bowl clean, had nothing. So I asked my friend, whose family will be joining us, she couldn't think of anything - but then again, she's got a lot going on in her life right now. Too much to be thinking of desserts. I do know that her middle son would be over the moon if I made a coconut cake - but to my mind that is more of a spring/summer kind of treat.
So here's where you come in. Tell me what dessert makes you think of Christmas. Perhaps it's something that is always on your table for Christmas. Or maybe a childhood favorite. Or something your mother or grandmother always made.
If you guys can't help me out or give me something overly complicated, I'll probably fall back on the Lemon Pound cake - but that also strikes me as a "summer" dessert.
