It’s not just summer. Here’s the best Christmas dessert

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) — Some traditional desserts come to mind during the Christmas season, such as pumpkin pies and sweet potatoes.. However, there is only one dessert that is ideal for this time of year.

And if you wonder what it is? It’s ice cream, says Casey Barber, food writer, artist and editor of Good. Food. Stories.

Some people think that ice cream is only eaten in the summer, but Barber considers it the perfect holiday dessert for kids and adults alike.

Barber is not advocating substituting ice cream for other desserts on the menu.

“If you love baking your favorite gingerbread cookie or apple pie during the holiday season, go ahead and eat it! I don’t want to stop anyone from enjoying what they love,” she said.

But why does Barber think ice cream should be the holiday treat?

Make it from scratch…or don’t

Barber knows just how much of a hassle making pies and other home-baked desserts can be.

Many people set their expectations high by creating delicious desserts from scratch. And if it doesn’t, they feel like a failure to live up to the holiday spirit.

With ice cream, this problem simply goes away.

And in the event that you want to buy ice cream, there are many additions that you can decorate it with from scratch, including:

  • caramel sauce

  • Hot fudge sauce

  • Marshmallow

  • Peanut candy

  • Chris Maraschino

Many stores sell different types of ice cream, which you can add to your menu during the holiday season.

And if you’re thinking of making an ice cream pie, Barber recommends making a homemade pie crust or buying it at the store.

To begin with, let the ice cream melt for 10 minutes, so that it can be stirred, then transfer it to a bowl with the necessary toppings.

Pour the mixture into the pie crust and freeze again.

Finally, you can put whipped cream on top before serving.

And the holiday season can last effectively as long as you have ice cream in the fridge, Barber says. So bring your spoon and let the celebration continue until 2023.
