Tanya of Eat Laugh Purr is my special guest today and she’s got a cherry bubble dessert recipe that is out of this world!
Christmas is next week! Are you ready? Ummmmm … I’m not. I have been a HUGE procrastinator this year. Normally, I am on top of it — presents wrapped and tucked under the tree; Christmas cards sent; Christmas outfit bought and ready to wear — done, done and done. But this year, I remain in deep denial that it’s even December!
The one thing I am prepared for is providing a delicious holiday tray. While I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, I love making different holiday goodies for all the festivities. So while I still may need to buy some gifts (ummmm… all of them), my holiday baking is done.
Now a lot of woman put a ton of pressure on themselves at Christmas. We have to decorate the house as though Martha Stewart (or Gwyneth Paltrow) was coming over to inspect our homes, buy and wrap Christmas gifts, cook a feast (or two or three) and bake some delicious holiday munchies. It’s too much. We are women, so we’re essentially superheroes, but we still have limits.
This is why I look for easy, but delicious offerings because I only have so much time. And pulling out my hair and yelling “bah humbug” is not how I want to spend my Christmas.
With that in mind, I whipped up this easy and gorgeous holiday dessert. Desserts are often overlooked in favor of those holiday trays filled with cookies, fudge and caramels. But my family also expects a delicious dessert served with the meal and I bet your family does too. This Cherry Bubble Dessert with Cream Cheese Glaze is the perfect answer. And it tastes as delicious as it looks too.
