Did someone say Dessert?

The best part about any dinner is the possibility of having something sweet follow it. Dessert should probably be known as the fourth meal of the day, even though it doesn’t quite satisfy all of the nutritional necessities that breakfast, lunch, or dinner do. But if you look past that and just acknowledge how good it tastes, it definitely deserves a spot up there with the three other big meals. I love dessert, whether it is a fruit filled dessert or cake batter and icing, nothing beats a well-prepared dessert. I want to share a few of my favorite desserts that I have made. I have found these recipes all around on the internet and will include a link to all of them if you want to try them for yourself. I loved them, so I am confident that you will too.

First up is some Blueberry-Peach Cobbler. Now, peach cobbler is a great dessert. But once you throw in some blueberries, you get a much more balanced sweetness and consistency in flavor. Just be sure to pick out some blueberries that are nice in size, and peaches that aren’t too ripe.

Tiramisu is one of my all-time favorite desserts. The combination of chocolate, coffee, mascarpone cheese and perhaps a sprinkle of cinnamon is just heavenly. The plus side of tiramisu is that it is easily served in balanced portions so that you can serve everyone at your dinner party with the perfect amount in a small cup.

A simple yet delicious treat is a batch of snickerdoodle cookies. The cakey texture is my favorite cookie texture, and the flavor just makes it even better. Be sure to follow the recipe just right so that the dough will rise up and create the perfect texture for these amazing cookies. I just love the way the dough rises up in the oven. The plus side of these cookies is that they can be easily stored in baggies just in case you don’t finish all of them.

A dessert that truly is 50/50 is pumpkin pie. For me, pumpkin pie is a must have during Thanksgiving. I love the mix of sweet and bitter flavor that really sets this pie apart from all the others. Just throw on some whipped cream and you have an amazing tasting dessert. Don’t be afraid to make this dessert any time of the year, even if the people around question why you can’t wait until Thanksgiving. Well, a dessert this good should be had much more than just once a year.

Dessert is an essential part of finishing off dinner right. It doesn’t matter what you make, as long as it is sweet and savory, it will do. These are only a couple desserts that are easy to prepare and taste great.
