Typically, my Christmas Day Desserts are made from scratch but the last few years I have found myself spending more time in the kitchen than with my guests on the big day. Epicure was introduced into my life and since then has helped make my holiday meals simple, fast and delicious.

Epicure offers clean eating with real, whole and gluten-free ingredients and innovative cookware. Clean products and recipes work together to form timesaving, practical solutions for real life situations.

  23. Elizabeth Matthiesen says

    Definitely Plum Pudding with custard, heavenly. Though these days I can only manage a tiny piece after the turkey dinner, I used to be able to eat a normal sized piece but these days it’s too much. Christmas cake (fruit cake with royal icing) comes a close second.

  24. Teresa says

    This would be a dream to win. I bake a lot-I got the baking bug from my mom and grandmother. It’s tradition! My fondest memories contain baking with them. The trials and tribulations of our baked goods. I’d love to win and bake-keep tradition going. I find it fun and therapeutic :)

  25. Teresa says

    I have to be honest-I’d share it with my Mom-we love to make traditional amaretti cookies at Christmas, gingerbread and Tiramisu and panettone are staple.

  26. Christina Leek says

    My fav dessert is angel pie. My Mom always made it but since she passed away, I’m next in line to try to perfect it the way she did. I would love to win this set for myself, actually! It’s something my Mom would have given me. :)

  27. Amanda M says

    Would gift to my cousin who got me hooked on the cheese, chives and bacon dip. You can put it with anything! Crackers, veggies, its sooo good!

  28. Christa says

    I love to cook! I would keep this if I’m lucky enough to win. It certainly would come in handy this Christmas season

  29. Doug G. says

    My favourite is the classic French St. Honoré cake ! I would definitely gift this amazing collection to my wife as she loves to cook!
