Easy desserts ease cooks into the holiday season
Last updated 10/27/2006 at Noon
All cooks have calculating cerebral calendars. We know that shortly after July Fourth there are brief stops at Labor Day, Columbus Day and Halloween before the Major League Cooking of Thanksgiving and Christmas. And it seems to go just about that f-a-s-t!
There are several ways to handle this situation. Leave town, detailed strategy of color-coded planning or a decision to aim for a happy, not perfect, holiday season. For some years now, I’ve gone the latter route, having tried the other ways with various levels of success.
For dessert I usually stay with the tried and true.
