Easy Last Minute Christmas Dessert: Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites

So you've waited until the last minute to plan your Christmas dessert. Have no fear! Lola Pearl is here! These little guys are so yummy, your family will be fighting for the last one. 

The pairing of gingerbread and lemon is something that is super close to our hearts. We have many fine memories of our Grandma Lola pulling gingerbread out of the oven and serving it with lemon sauce. 

Here, we incorporate the two flavors in a new modern way! Watch the video of Lindsay making this dessert on "Winging it, Buffalo Style" last week!

Art Imitating Life: Lovely Snowy Gingerbread Christmas Tree Cookies

It's awesome to be able to turn to nature for inspiration when decorating cookies. The swirling snow outside becomes apparent on gingerbread pine trees with royal icing scrolls. Lovely!

'Tis the Season for Holiday Baking - love, crumb and pies

Yes, the crust on pies is delicious. But it's hard to argue that a pie topped with crumb isn't a wonderful thing. If you've never made it at home, worry not. As long as you don't mix the three easy ingredients just until it is crumbly. Any more, your chunks will be too big! 

What you need: 
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar 
1/4 cup butter, diced

Once your filling and bottom layer is ready to go, place a sheet of parchment paper over a baking sheet. You can put the crumb on top by scooping and heaving. You want it to look like you've added it too high. The filling (especially if it's apple) will shrink in the baking process. 

Happy Baking!
