Desserts

All hail dessert! We all turn into a kid when confronted with a freshly baked apple pie, a towering chocolate layer cake, or a plate piled high with chocolate chip cookies after dinner. Dessert recipes tend to get passed down from generation to generation, because we all crave the sweets we ate when were children, whether it's a creamy lemon pudding, gooey chocolate brownies, or a stacked strawberry shortcake. Skip the premade stuff at the supermarket and take the time to make your own - half the fun is letting the kids help you bake. We're always told to save room for dessert, but let's be honest - room or not, we'll eat it anyway.
