Q I would absolutely love to have some dessert recipes that can be made ahead of time, frozen and still taste great when thawed. Holiday cooking can get so hectic, it would be nice to already have some desserts in the freezer, ready to be enjoyed and raved about! Is there any such thing?

- Robin


We are happy to report to you, Robin, that we do have such things in our recipe collection! And we think your idea to get some desserts into the freezer is brilliant.

You can’t go wrong with festive Candy Cane Dessert Squares – a pink peppermint dessert lined with rich chocolate ganache that is delicious frozen or refrigerated, and certain to get rave reviews. Or, bake and freeze some lovely Pecan Tarts with Orange Cream, and simply add the orange whipped cream when you thaw and serve. Pound cakes also freeze well – Cranberry Walnut Maple Pound Cake baked in two loaf pans is a nice holiday choice. Wrap your cooled loaves in plastic food wrap and then in foil. Add the drizzle after thawing for a moist, irresistible treat!

Happy Holidays!
