Christmas Dessert Contest
December 24, 2013
My family always gets together on Christmas Eve and we exchange gifts and celebrate the season. With grown children, there is always a scheduling problem, so we have an open house that day and serve an unending plethora of appetizers.
A few years ago, we had a dessert contest, featuring mini desserts. We have a theme each year, and this year it was holly. With my son’s help, I created a scoring paper for all of the desserts. Each dessert is given a number and each is judged on a scale from 1 – 10. Everyone is a judge, tastes the desserts and scores each one.
It is really all in fun and the grandkids sometimes give a score of 10,000 or more to their favorite. I give prizes for the top three, which are usually mini dessert dishes, cookie cutters, rolling pins, etc.
