Xmas Dessert Thoughts/Suggestions

RosemaryHoney | Dec 9, 2008 05:48 AM

I've been put in charge of the desserts for our Christmas dinner. It's mandatory that I make an assortment of cookies, our family's special almond toffee, and a pumpkin pie, but I'm trying to think of something a little different for the final dessert option. I have some stiff parameters: no nuts, no chocolate, and no peppermint. So I was thinking of making a rum cake and serving it with 2 topping options: a caramel-rum sauce or eggnog whipped cream.

Thoughts? Other suggestions? Oh - and does anyone have good recipes for rum cake? I have one, but I'm always looking for comparisons.
