10 Dessert Recipes to Prepare This Christmas Season

'Tis the season for the sweet-toothed.


We all love to indulge our sweet tooth during the holidays. Adorable gingerbread men abound and children stuff their little faces with ensaymada dunked in hot chocolate. In the spirit of the holidays, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite holiday desserts for you to share. What would Christmas be without a little bit of sugar?


Salted Caramel Pastillas

We’ve updated a classic Pinoy treat by adding rich caramel and just a hint of briny salt. Prefer the no-cook pastillas version? We have a recipe, too.
