I am looking for recommendations for Chrismas Eve dessert. The issue is that my father-in-law and I have very different ideas as to what makes a good dessert. Add to that the fact that I'm pregnant and the idea of eating a super sweet dessert does not appeal to me at all. I would prefer something along the lines of honey poached pears or apples cranberry crisp. My father-in-law likes very basic foods and those would not be considered basic desserts in his book. He would prefer very sweet, maybe pie, fudge or pudding. Does anyone have any recommendations that might satisfy both of us? Or should I just make fudge, which I know everyone else will like?
