With the holiday season just around the corner, there is so much to look forward to!
We love to decorate, spend time with family, and of course, eat delicious food.
From turkey to stuffing, or roasted chestnuts to apple pie; there is nothing better than eating dessert during the holiday season.
Here are 3 of our favorite dessert recipes to enjoy this holiday season.
This recipe is simple and only requires about 5-10 minutes of preparation to make. If you are looking for something to remind you of cheesecake but without all the extra calories, then this is your new go-to.
You will begin by creaming cream cheese, then mixing in full fat or nonfat yogurt. Following the creaming, you will add vanilla extract, salt, and your choice of sweetener. After mixing the cream cheese, you will spread it onto a baking sheet, and mix on top melted chocolate, or peanut butter, or both!
Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 4 hours or until they are firm enough to be considered bark.

Pumpkin pie is about as traditional as it gets when it comes to holiday season desserts. Pumpkin scones are a slightly healthier alternative to pumpkin pie.
The first step is to combine whole wheat pastry baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg into a bowl. Next, mix in butter until the butter creates pea-sized balls with the dough. Following the butter is milk, vanilla extract, then pumpkin until it is combined.
Next, remove the dough and knead it on a floured surface. Then cut the dough into 8 triangles and bake at 425F for about 15-18 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

Anginetti Cookies are delicious, lemon flavored cookies, which are very flexible recipe wise. Rather than using traditional sugar, these cookies use coconut sugar instead. If you are looking for easy homemade cookies, these are a nice alternative to chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin.
In a bowl, beat eggs and mix in coconut oil, vanilla extract, lemon extract, and coconut sugar until combined. Add cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, baking powder, and baking soda. Next, add flour until combined.
Then place the dough in balls on a lined baking sheet. Bake them for 12-15 minutes. After that, top them with a mixture of powdered sugar and milk to get an extra little sweet kiss on top.
