Roger Mooking's Pastelles

Kelsey's Egg Nog Milkshake

To Kelsey, nothing represents the holidays more than eggnog. She elevates the traditional drink by blending it with ice cream and crushed gingersnap cookies. This is a family-friendly version, but feel free to spike it with a few ounces of brandy or bourbon.

Bobby's Lighter Bob's Peppermint Pie

The best part of Bobby's minty marshmallow cream dessert? There's no baking involved. It's actually easier than pie, since you usually have to bake pie.
