12. 20-Minute Snowflake Cream Puffs
Holiday entertaining is almost in full swing. This year, I will be hosting Thanksgiving day dessert buffet where close family and friends will come to my home to enjoy home-baked pies, sweet, and drinks. This will be my first large-scale entertaining event so I really want to make sure everything is on-point, fresh, and of course tasty.
13. Italian Fudge Rolls
Italian fudge rolls are to-die-for.
14. Cannoli Cups
There is nothing more comforting than a cannoli with the mini chocolate chips (I was never a fan of the dried fruit version). We always had them on holidays, and occasionally, they would make an appearance at the Sunday dinner table. In an effort to make cannolis easy and bite sized, I came up with the idea of cannoli cups.
15. Candied Pecan Cheese Braid
Here’s a versatile, unbelievable good dessert that you can serve for breakfast or brunch too. It features tender puff pastry filled with sweetened cream cheese and candied pecans. It’s even better served warm!

I made this recipe while staying with that same, very generous, cousin that I mentioned before. Nothing in the pantry = being resourceful without buying too many new items to fill the cabinets. More importantly, having it still be very delicious.
22. Easy Strawberry Cheese Danish Pastry Bites
My sweet tooth sometimes gets ahold of me and won’t let up until I satisfy that craving for whatever particular sweet treat I’m craving at the moment. I like to think I get it honest, per my grandmother, who had a mean sweet tooth. But let me tell you, moderation is key and plays a role in this recipe…

Pumpkin Twists: flaky puff pastry is filled with a spiced pumpkin filling, baked until golden brown, and then drizzled with a sweet vanilla glaze on top!
