Favorite Desserts - Yummy!

Okay now! Do I have your interest? Who doesn't love dessert? This list will be specific (and varied), because I can't just say cake or pie, you know? This list is in no particular order (just how I came to think of them).

·         Dulce de Leche Caramel Cheesecake (from the Cheesecake Factory)
·         White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake (from the Cheesecake Factory)
·         Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake (from the Cheesecake Factory)
Note – Yes, I do have a problem when we go to the Cheesecake Factory because I have to CHOOSE one!
·         Coffee Ice Cream (any vendor, but Baskin Robbins Jamoca is probably my favorite). Put marshmallow fluff on it and I'm a goner!
·         Chocolate cake with white fluffy frosting. If I see this I cannot resist.
·         Chocolate cookie with white chocolate chunks (the ones at Subway are pretty good)
·         Custard (no one's ever made it as good as Mom)
·         Tapioca Pudding. One cup is not enough – I could eat the whole bowl.
·         Butterscotch pudding with whipped cream. Lose the whipped cream and I'm not interested.
·         Pumpkin pie with Cool Whip. Lose the Cool Whip and I'll still eat it.
·         Cobbler (apple, peach, or blueberry) with vanilla ice cream (must be heated!)
·         Double-Doozie cookies (from the Cookie Factory--chocolate chip or M&M chip. The chocolate cookies, while good, are too soft for these). Yes, they are super sweet, but so addicting! Good thing I only limit myself during Dragon*Con (of which I will be attending this year after all – yay!).
·         French Silk Pie (from Bob Evans). Best when shared with my hubby.
·         Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel.
·         Glorified Brownies (the kind Grandma made). Brownies with marshmallows and frosting. I haven't been able to duplicate it, but they sure were messy and oh, so yummy!

It's no wonder I need to lose weight. It is a wonder I don't weight more!  So, what desserts are irresistible to you? And the important question: Have I made you hungry?

My, my, my. Dessert on the brain today, I see.

Never had homemade custard. Very cool that your mom makes her own.

LOL I have the same problem at the Cheesecake Factory! I usually wind up with chocolate/coconut cream cheesecake. And yup, I'm hungry now...

Ice cream.

Especially, a choclate shake with UDF's Cherry Cordial ice cream.

Or if it's really hot out, a pineapple shake from DQ.

Of course, I've never turned down a warm chocolate chip cookie right from the oven. Have you?

Whisk - Even though I was probably a teen, I still remember her custard (and the fact she complained about how much work was involved). I doubt she makes it anymore, though (and I live too far away to bug her!).

Jennette - Yeah, I really like the Cheesecake Factory and was so happy when one opened up around here. Of course, now I have to force myself to stay away! Too tempting!

Linda - So ice cream is your weakness, huh? I know some people like that. And the chocolate chip cookie? Yep, best right out of the oven. Now I want one!
