Guiltless Holiday Desserts

Ah, dessert! Many of us (not just children) wish that meals began with sweet treats rather than ended with them. The final course—cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, flans, puddings, you name it—is a key part of the sumptuousness of the holiday season. For your festivities, we've assembled five show-stoppers that FoodFit cooks adore. Plus, get helpful hints from award-winning pastry chef Emily Luchetti and many more fabulous holiday dessert recipes.

FoodFit Executive Chef Bonnie Moore and the other acclaimed chefs in FoodFit's Chef's Network make it their mission to create desserts that are lower in fat without sacrificing flavor so you can indulge more healthfully. They also work to create recipes that are simple and quick to prepare, which means less time spent in the kitchen and more time to enjoy with friends and family.
