What dessert to bring to in-laws for X-mas eve?

Woodensandals | Dec 11, 2011 09:12 AM

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for the right dessert to bring to my in-laws for Christmas Eve. Every year I make a delicious, beautiful dessert and they look at it like it is poison. Past projects include coconut cream pie, apple pie, carrot cake, pistachio - cranberry biscotti, sweet potato pie, yule log, (chocolate genoise with fluffy mousse inside and ganache outside) and last year pecan pie "bites" in phyllo shells.

I have no idea what to make this year, but I cannot show up empty-handed. At this point I am thinking a box of chocolates... They don't drink wine.

They are italian (from the old neighborhood, not the old country), are very bakery oriented, and only cook at home from a mix. The only thing I don't bake well are cookies because my oven is vintage and half size so I avoid cookies.

Any suggestions are welcome.
