Last updated:

Baking yummy treats for the holidays can be a fun and rewarding tradition for the whole family.

But if you’re terrible at baking, much like myself, you’d probably rather skip the dirty dishes and buy a delicious dessert instead. Of course, Columbus has your back. Let’s be honest though. Would you expect anything less from this food-obsessed city?

I hope you’re ready to gobble up some desserts. Here are the 7 best holiday treats waiting to be enjoyed by you and your family this December.


Pfeffernusse Cream Puff from Schmidt’s

There’s no such thing as a bad cream puff from Schmidt’s. The Pfeffernusse Cream Puff is no exception. Based on a family recipe for German spice Christmas cookies, this delightful dessert will have you coming back for more.
