Best Christmas desserts

Christmas, the birthday of Jesus Christ is celebrated all around the world on 25th December. In Kolkata, the city of Joy, which is my birthplace, the festival is celebrated with lot of enthusiasm. When I used to be a child, I remember my father bringing Christmas cakes from the local market. There are some age-old bakeries in Park Street, New market, who still serve and deliver excellent Christmas goodies. One of them is more than 100 years old, the Jewish bakery “Nahoum & Sons”, which was established in 1902. The crowd at the bakery shops and enthusiasm during the Christmas depicts beyond a doubt that a festival is about celebrating lives and people and goes beyond the bounds of any religion, community or creed.

In this post I wish to share 6 best Christmas dessert recipes from my blog which you will love to bake during the celebration week.
