Three Holiday Desserts

Daddypotamus: “Who taught Katie ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?”

Me: That would be me. Last July.

Oh holidays. The food. The love. The traditions. The opportunity to count blessings and give some away. Who am I kidding? I’ll celebrate just about anything. What other kind of person would do this?

Still, I want these days to shimmer and sparkle in my children’s eyes . . . but not at any cost. I care about their health too much to open up pandora’s box of refined sugars, unhealthy oils and unpronounceable ingredients. Will the grinch win? Absolutely not! With these quick and nourishing recipes on hand, he never had a chance. :)

Raw Eggnog

This recipe from Cheeseslave is “easy to make, and does not take more than a minute or two. Eggnog is a great way to get in a lot of extra raw dairy and high-quality saturated fats from the raw cream, as well as raw egg yolks during the winter season.”

Molasses Custard

This recipe from Nourished Kitchen takes five minutes to prep and is loaded with rich, healthy fats along with vitamin A, riboflavin, selenium, phosphorus and calcium. I’m heading out to buy some ramekins right now (mine are lost in storage) so I can serve this for our Christmas Day brunch.

Almond Flour Shortbread Recipe

Let’s do this one by the numbers.

Ingredients: 4.

Minutes to prep: 5.

Time these cookies will last on your holiday table: 0 seconds flat.

Thank you Hartke is Online for this simple but elegant treat!

What are you baking today?
