My favorite holiday dessert is homemade Lemon Sour Cream Pie. I don’t know why, but something about the flaky crust and rich lemon filling topped with fluffy whipped cream reminds me of the holidays! I swear I look forward to it every year.
My favorite holiday desert is a pound cake homemade by my mom. I miss Christmas dinners with my parents very much.
My favorite holiday dessert has always been making sugar cookies and eating them with eggnog as we decorate our Christmas tree!

Pound cake.. plain and simple
My favorite holiday dessert has to be chocolate caramel thumbprint cookies. Delicious!
My favorite desserts are coconut sponge cakes. They’re better is sandwiching cream that isn’t too sweet, and topped with a chocolate tuille.
My favorite holiday desert is cheesecake cookies! All the benefits of the taste of cheese cake in a calorie consumption con tolled portion. Not everything over the holidays has to add 5 lbs to be delicious.

I am thrilled to have been chosen the winner of this cookbook. I also feel very fortunate considering the number of entrants involved. Trust me when I tell you that I plan to bake my way from cover-to-cover and blog about my experience. I should probably also shop around for some slacks with elastic waistbands. ;-)
Thanks so much, Average Betty!
