Question Random question for the day: Desserts

I haven't posted an extremely random question in a while so here we go:

What is your favorite dessert?


I'm a sucker for a good creamy cheesecake. Better Homes and Gardens has a recipe from many years ago that is a vanilla bean cheesecake, and it is THE BEST homemade cheesecake ever.

Another one of my favs is this turtle cheesecake from a brewery I used to go to in Jacksonville called Southend Brewery. Its an upscale brewery with really fantastic food, and their cheesecake has a pecan and chocolate crust on bottom, then pecans, caramel and chocolate on top. Ohhhhh it is soooo yummy

Cookies.. Any kind as long as they are "home-made" really but my all-time favorites are Snickerdoodles and Sutter's Home (Peanut Butter w/ chunks of chocolate). I don't eat any mass-marketed cookies except for the Pepperidge Farm brand but will on occasion buy cookies from the bakery. After that pretty much any kind of pie with Pecan, Pumpkin and Apple at the top of the list.

I love chocolate but cannot stand the taste of chocolate cake, ice cream or pudding and only eat chunk chocolate in cookies. Yeah, I know its weird but just how I am. I have an ex-girlfriend who didn't know this and she gave me a surprise birthday party (another thing I hate) with a chocolate cake.

I'm not a fan of plain chocolate anything either. I'm one of those people that can't stand desserts that are really rich or overly chocolatey, so I have to have that good balance between chocolatey but not too sweet or rich. When I get birthday cakes (store bought ones), I like to get a chocolate vanilla swirl, but then I get the whipped topping which is almost like a cool whip texture and flavor... it's very light and doesn't taste like solid sugar.

I also only eat cookies that are homemade. I LOVE cookies but I usually only eat them right after they come out of the oven, when they're still warm and gooey I just did make snickerdoodles for the first time a few weeks ago and they were very yummy!

I'm also one that can't stand something "too sweet". When I was a kid I could eat that stuff all day...now I'm lucky if I can finish an entire candy bar.

Cheese cake and pumpkin pie are at the top of my list.

Mmm...Pecan pie and cheesecake (just because they were mentioned). Yet, if I have to pick just one for years it has been peanut M&M's FTW.

Funny question, as I just added a Palettes of Flavour sub-forum on JPiC: http://jpicforum.info/palettes-flavour/ --- One of my favorites from Easy to Bake Easy to Make recipe cards is the Cranberry Peach Cobbler - it's a fabulous dish - a very rich dish actually and the recipe is on JPiC

Home-made pumpkin pie from scratch (none of this pie-in-a-can junk). Every year I carve to pieces (cut up) 2-4 pumpkins. A couple hours labor but worth the effort

I was going to make pumpkin pie from scratch this year. Didn't grow any pie pumpkins though and the large ones they sell for jack-o-lanterns are bitter. Local store advertised pie pumpkins in their weekly circular a week or so before Halloween so my wife and I went out of our way to get some. However this store never got their shipment and wasn't planning on stocking them at all. Was very disappointed and won't ever return there.

Next season, I'll be planting pie pumpkins in the yard for this purpose.

It's actually posted on my site under recipes - here (modified so anyone can use it). I put the link because there are more recipes in that thread.

Streusal-Topped Pumpkin Pie

1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin or 2 cups of pumpkin puree
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened, condensed milk
1 egg
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp each: ginger, nutmeg, salt
2 (6 oz.) graham cracker pie crusts
1/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
2 tbs. all-purpose flour
2 tbs cold butter or margarine
3/4 c chopped walnuts or pecans

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine pumpkin, condensed milk, egg, 3/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 12 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Mix well. Pour into pie crust.

2. Bake 15 minutes. Then remove pies from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees.

3. Combine sugar, flour, and remaining 1/2 tsp cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in nuts. Sprinkle streusal mixture over pies.

4. Bake 40 minutes or until set.

5. Serve warm or at room temperature. Whipped cream optional. Refrigerate leftovers.
Or at least that's the version my wife posted...
