Holiday Desserts: Calories Worth The Plunge

November 09, 2012

The holidays are when people around the world splurge.

Those desirables they do their best to avoid year-around are given reprieves.

And desserts are no exception.

Typically, Americans begin surrendering to sweet temptations around and during Thanksgiving.

This is the time when those wonderful but dastardly desserts slay our diets and rob us of our willpower.

So, in the spirit of delightful tastes worth the splurge, Glory Foods® has some great suggestions for dessert recipes you can make with Glory Foods® Sweet Traditions® or Glory Foods® Seasoned Southern Style products. With them, you can make holiday desserts with the added goodness of vegetables and fruit.

The Honey Carrot Bread, for example, is a delicious, moist dessert that isn’t sugary and made with orange zest, walnuts, raisins and Glory Foods® Seasoned Southern Style Honey Carrots. Just 1/2 cup of these carrots contains 90 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. The bread is ideal for the main dessert or for a midnight snack enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee.

At , there are many sweets from which you can choose, including fried apple cobbler and Apple Citrus bread made prepared with Glory Foods® Sweet Traditions® Fried Apples and No-Bake Sweet Potato Vanilla Wafer Pudding and Glory’s Sweet Potato Pie featuring Glory Foods® Sweet Traditions® Sweet Potato Casserole.

For your Thanksgiving meal, try this crowd-pleasing recipe for Sweet Potato Roll.

Sweet Potato Roll

Serves 8-10

1/4 cup Powdered sugar
3/4 cup Flour, all-purpose
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
3 each Eggs, large
1 (15-ounce) can Glory Foods® Sweet Potato Casserole
8-ounce (1 package) Cream cheese, at room temperature
6 tablespoons Butter, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for finishing

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 15” x 10” sheet pan with parchment paper. Spray the parchment with cooking spray.
On a second piece of parchment paper, evenly sprinkle 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
Place eggs in a mixer and mix on high for 3 minutes. Add Glory Foods® Sweet Potato Casserole and mix until blended. Fold in the flour mixture 1/3 at a time and spread evenly on the parchment-lined sheet tray.
Bake 13 to 15 minutes, making sure the top of the cake springs back when touched. Quickly loosen and turn the cake on to the parchment paper prepared with powdered sugar. Peel the paper away from the cake bottom with care.
Starting at the narrow end of the cake, roll the cake and powdered paper together, placing it seam side down. Let cool.
To make the filling, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract until smooth.
To assemble, unroll the cooled cake. Spread the filling evenly over the cake. Roll the filled cake and refrigerate for a few hours.
Dust with powdered sugar, serve and enjoy.
