Christmas Desserts: Sweets of the Season

Christmas_Desserts coverI’m delighted to be participating in author Laura Powell’s Cedar Fort Publishing virtual book tour for her release, CHRISTMAS DESSERTS: Sweets of the Season.

Here are my thoughts on this delightful book.

Desserts are always a favorite during the holidays and author Laura Powell has some yummy treats to try in her cookbook, CHRISTMAS DESSERTS: Sweets of the Season.

This charming cookbook is small enough to be a great stocking stuffer, but big on taste and easy to prepare. The recipes are easy to follow with step-by-step instructions. There are numerous beautiful color photographs throughout the book showing the finished desserts that add to the process.

From Chocolate Peppermint Twist Cupcakes to Eggnog Cookies to Gingerbread Cheesecake Squares and many more, CHRISTMAS DESSERTS offers delicious recipes for the holidays and throughout the year.

Christmas Desserts: Sweets of the Season by Laura Powell, Cedar Fort Publishing & Media, @2014, ISBN: 978-1462114733, Paperback, 32 Pages 

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher as part of the author’s virtual book tour. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.


Laura Powell grew up in the Salt Lake Valley. She gained a passion for cooking from her mother and created her own recipe book as a young girl along with participating in a summer cooking program through the Deseret News. 

She began her blog,, in April of 2008 as a way to showcase her passion for cooking. Since then has turned into her own small business. Laura continues to reside in Utah with her husband and 3 children.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday. Do you have a favorite holiday dessert?

  1. I am carefully not looking too closely. I really, really need to avoid desserts - not make more of them.
    And shortly I will get off my behind and start soaking the fruit for Christmas cakes in rum and brandy.
    Closer to the day I will make shortbread. With cinnamon.

    1. Elephant's Child, I know what you mean about avoiding desserts. But I seem to be drawn to them more and more lately. :) Your
      Christmas cakes sound delicious.
