Christmas Yum Yums annual holiday desserts

Don't be fooled by appearances. This dessert couldn't be easier. Vanilla ice cream, pistachios and crisp purchased meringues match wits with a triple threat of raspberry sorbet, jam and fresh fruit. Such an effortlessly glamorous dessert shouldn’t taste this good. The ingredients are: 2 pints good quality vanilla ice cream, such as Haagen Dazs 1 pint raspberry sorbet Nonstick cooking spray 1/2 cup pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped, plus additional for garnish 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam, stirred to soften 1 cup raspberries Purchased meringues, coarsely broken or chopped

Dip one end of each cookie into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on wire racks. For Santa's hat, sprinkle red sugar on top part of chocolate. Press one vanilla chip off-center on hat for pompom; let stand until set. 3. Dip other end of each cookie into melted chocolate for beard, leaving center of cookie uncovered. Place on wire racks. With a dab of melted chocolate, attach semisweet chips for eyes and a red-hot for nose. Place on waxed paper until set. Yield: 32 cookies
