Need a dessert idea for Christmas dinner

karykat | Dec 15, 2007 01:11 PM

I'm supposed to bring a dessert for Christmas dinner. It does not need to be big or rich. Most of my recipes fall in that category, so I'm looking for something different. Like I said, it will follow a big meal and will be served with Christmas cookies, so it does not need to be big. But it should be a little special. Here are the three thoughts I've had so far: Mini-cheesecakes? I have one of those mini-cheesecake pans with the removable bottoms, so I could do something with that. But what would work that wouldn't be overly rich? Or mini-cream puffs? Filled with what? Again, how to do without being too rich? Maybe just keep them small? Or, what about a flan, creme caramel type of thing?

Any riffs on these or other ideas? Thanks!
