Holiday desserts on a college budget Hallie Beard || Opinion Editor hbeard2@murraystate.edu

THE HOLIDAY SEASON

calls for baking, parties and lots of class. As college students on a ramen noodle finals-week budget, though, how can we pull off a mature, domestic shindig with beautiful confections? Without mom’s kitchen full of tools and a pantry full of ingredients, will we be forced to show up to ugly Christmas sweater parties empty-handed? Have no fear: these easy and pretty dessert recipes will impress even your grandmother, and they won’t leave you slaving over the stove for hours. Follow these instructions (or add your own touches) and your holiday baking endeavor will be a piece of cake – pun intended.
