Delightful Desserts for December
Bite-sized appetizers will make sure you have enough room left for dessert. Instead of traditional Christmas cookies, delight guests with a mousse or panna cotta. A variety of textures will please the palate. Put a twist on classic favorites like eggnog by using Pearl Creamy Vanilla Organic Soymilk.
- Peppermint shows up in coffee, cookies and candy. Tap into this holiday flavor by including it in a rich Peppermint Chocolate Mousse. Whipped cream can lighten the mixture and temper the strong chocolate flavor. The chocolate in this mousse comes from cocoa powder and our Pearl Chocolate soymilk. Garnish with mini candy canes and cookie crumbles for colorful presentation.
- After you’ve stuffed stockings, wrapped gifts and decorated for the holidays, make breakfast ahead of time. Sit back and enjoy a piece of Spiced Apple Cake made with Pearl Creamy Vanilla Organic Soymilk. This cake is not overly sweet making it a great breakfast option. Enjoy a slice with coffee.
- Another dessert ideal for breakfast or paired with coffee after dinner is Almond Biscotti. This hard nut flavored cookie is topped with a rich chocolate ganache. You can either dip the biscotti in the ganache or drizzle over. This dessert is dairy free and great to have on hand for snacking.
- An alternative and equally decadent option to cheesecake is Chocolate-Almond Panna Cotta. An often forgot about dessert, panna cotta shines with our Pearl Chocolate soymilk. This custard like dessert can be made a couple of days ahead leaving you more time to focus on cooking main dishes.
