Christmas Dessert Recipes

Cookies are a must for most of us who celebrate Christmas, but sometimes an additional dessert (or even more than one) is in order. In this slideshow, you'll find pies, cakes, tarts, pots de creme, and cheesecakes, all perfect for your holiday table. For something a bit farther afield, you could consider seasonal ice cream sandwiches, but if you're more traditional, click through to the actually-delicious fruitcake recipes in our gallery, not to mention classic stollen and sticky toffee pudding too.

We start with a winter-white cake rich with coconut milk and coconut cream, fluffy with a marshmallow frosting and a snowfall of flaked coconut, which you get to throw at the cake in a flurry.
