This year, we are completely revamping Christmas dinner meny and we are about to start with a few pastry suggestions for those with a sweet tooth.

Christmas pastries

1. Pastel de nata

Let’s start off this list with one of the best-tasting pastries in the whole world, the pastel de nata. This seemingly unknown pastry has been getting very popular around the world, and it is absolutely one of the best choices on this list. However, it is also one of the most complicated to make; not only does it require a lot of time, but it also needs some expertise. This could be one of the best Christmas pastries to present to your family members this Christmas.

Preparation time: 1 hour


2. Profiteroles

For a French-inspired Christmas sweet, profiteroles are the best option. They are certainly complicated to make, and it will take you some time to fill them up, but they are some of the best-tasting sweets that you can share with your family members during Christmas time.

Preparation time: 55 minutes


3. Danish pastry is wienerbrød

There’s no way that we could suggest the best Christmas pastries without mentioning something traditionally Scandinavian. That’s right, Danish pastries are another option that you should consider. They are a great option, and you can use whatever filling you want, which is great if you have picky eaters in your family.

Preparation time: 25 minutes


4. Chocolate palmier

Are you looking for another French-inspired recipe? Then plamier might be a great option, and I especially love the chocolate ones. They are easy to make and a small bite-type dessert that allows you to still enjoy other things.

Preparation time: 35 minutes


5. Eclair

An eclair is another sweet that will bring out your French inspiration – and voilá! Yes, they are delicious and easy to make, and they will also look great on your Christmas table. A great way to innovate your sweets for this year is with eclairs.

7. Christmas Donuts

Who doesn’t love a good donut? Whether it is simple, just with sugar on the top, or with a filling, donuts are great, especially if they are homemade. They are relatively easy to make, and you don’t need a lot of ingredients. You can put some Christmas-looking sprinkles on top, red and green, and you will have the best-looking Christmas donuts.

8. Strudel

Strudel might be one of the best cinnamon-flavored recipes on this list, and with a little vanilla ice cream, it can be the perfect combination for your Christmas sweets table. There’s nothing quite like the warm apple flavor with cinnamon and raisins. It is also easy to make, and everyone usually loves this traditional German-inspired recipe.

Preparation time: 25 minutes


9. Croissants

If you are up for a challenge, then croissants are a great choice. Sure, it will take you some time to prepare, and you might have to spend an hour or so creating the perfect fluffy croissant dough, but they are something to behold once they are done. The best thing about croissants is that you can put whatever filling you want inside, from chocolate to sugary egg filling or even some jam. You can also turn them into a savory treat for Christmas breakfast.

Preparation time: 1 hour


10. Muffins

Who doesn’t love a good muffin? Muffins can be great because you can serve them during Christmas dinner and breakfast the next day, making them very versatile. They are also easy to prepare, and you can decorate them with food glitter to give them a Christmas look.
