Which Dessert for Christmas?

Holidays are the only time of the year that I make a decadent desserts–strawberry cake for Easter, coconut cream pie for Fourth of July, etc.–so this is my chance to do something fun. I’m not going to do an apple or pumpkin pie just because I want to do something different this year. I’m not a fan of spice cakes and fruit cakes. So what to do?
Luckily, Martha Stewart has a list of 50 options on her website. Here’s a few I am considering:

Birch de Noel. I don’t see myself making meringue mushrooms (hard!), but this is an impressive and delicious dessert, plus very traditional.

Grand Raspberry Trifle. This is a leading possibility. However, I don’t have a trifle dish so I’m not sure what I would make it in…

Chocolate-Pistachio Torte. Yummy.

Chocolate-Peppermint Tarts with Currants and Berries. These are beautiful looking at least.

Gingerbread Cheesecake. I love a good cheesecake.
These are all great options, but I’m not sure the right thing is here. Suggestions?

Sharing is caring!
