Ten Light Holiday Delights

The holidays are upon us and that means trying—again—to avoid the plates of cookies and candy that line our homes and offices. It's tough to resist those once-a-year treats, especially when they're homemade. In fact, in our online Holiday Survey, over 66 percent of you told us that cookies and desserts are the holiday foods that you overindulge in during the season.

This year, instead of either giving into those sugar cookies or depriving yourself completely, we've created a list of ten delicious and light treats to give and enjoy this year. They are so sensational, your family and friends may never know that you've put their favorite treats on a diet!
