Desserts that are Simple to Prepare and Will Impress Your Family and Friends

    Desserts that are Simple to Prepare and Will Impress Your Family and Friends

    1. Cookie Butter Pie

    One day while I was shopping for groceries, I had some Biscoff cookie spread, and it was so wonderful that I decided to include it into a pie that did not require baking. You may create a one-of-a-kind version of this pie by exchanging the Biscoff spread for peanut butter or another kind of spread, and then topping it with the same ingredients. — Katrina Adams, from Mount Olive, Alabama

    2. Easy No-Bake Cheesecake

    I’ve cooked a lot of cheesecakes, and while I love each and every one of them, they’re usually a lot of work. Consider making this straightforward cheesecake recipe for a change of pace. Because it does not require baking and is loaded with fresh berries, it is an excellent choice for the summer. When I made this dish for the first time, my husband complimented it by stating that it was even better than the baked versions, which was a huge win for me. —Joyce Mummau, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America

    3. Snickers Cookies

    These cookies hide a delicious treat within, which is something you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at them. This recipe for Snickers cookies was given to my mother by a colleague at the school where she taught. It is a fantastic technique to spruce up cookie dough that has been stored in the refrigerator. —Kari Pease, Conconully, Washington, United States

    4. Quick Mango Sorbet

    During one of the summers, I thought it would be fun to make a sorbet out of passion fruit and mango. However, fresh fruits require more preparation and can be difficult to find at the same stage of ripeness. Therefore, I decided to conduct some research using frozen fruit and liquid, and voilà! Both can be obtained without much difficulty and at a low cost. —Carol Klein, from Franklin Square in New York

    5. Marshmallow Fudge

    You won’t be able to say no to this decadent chocolate treat even if you try really hard. In spite of the fact that it is packed to the gills with marshmallows and graham crackers, no one will believe that the delectable dessert is low in fat. —Holly Mann, from Temple, in the state of New Hampshire

    6. Gooey Chocolate-Peanut Bars

    These are quite simple to prepare and need almost no time at all. They are perfect for giving as care packages to students away at college who are yearning for something familiar from back home. This dish will be in demand by everyone.

    7. Frozen Margarita Mousse

    Who doesn’t adore a margarita served over ice? This luscious frozen mousse is made by combining ready-to-drink margarita mix with whipped topping (instead of using whipped topping, you might use this whipped topping substitute). It is simple to assemble, and the freezer does all of the hard work for you. To enhance both the sweet and salty flavors, garnish the dish with some additional crumbled pretzels and some kosher salt. —Debbie Glasscock, Conway, Arkansas

    8. Cinnamon-Cranberry Oat Bars

    I work as a swim instructor for children, and I decided to start creating these bars for my students to eat as a snack. I was looking for something that wouldn’t tax their digestive systems but would still keep them energized. Since the very first time that I brought them, the children have cherished them. Now, I take them with me to every event that the team has. —Sarah Riviere, Prescott, Arizona

    9. Hazelnut Toffee

    Since there are a lot of hazelnuts produced in the Willamette Valley, this recipe is an accurate representation of where we come from. I always prepare a large quantity of this scrumptious toffee so that I can serve it during Christmas and give some of it away as presents. —Earlene Ertelt, Woodburn, Oregon

    10. Cinnamon Apple Pan Betty

    Decades ago, not long after I had tied the knot, I came across this recipe. You will only need a few simple items, most of which you probably already have on hand. It only takes a few minutes to put together, making it one of our go-to meals during the fall and winter months, when apples are at their peak flavor. —Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania

    11. Cannoli Dip

    One of the components that my loved ones enjoy the most is ricotta. I made the cannoli filling from scratch and shattered some ice cream waffle shells to use as “chips and dip”; the combination was an immediate success! It is also delicious when served slightly warm. —Ann Marie Eberhart, Gig Harbor, Washington

    12. Pressure-Cooker Cherry & Spice Rice Pudding

    Where I live, which likes to think of itself as the cherry capital of the world, is Traverse City. What better way to honor our magnificent orchards than by incorporating lush, tart dried cherries in my favorite desserts? I can’t think of a better approach. This recipe for rice pudding made in a pressure cooker always produces delicious results. —Deb Perry, from Traverse City in the state of Michigan

    13. Thumbprint Cookies Made Without Flour and Peanut Butter

    When I was looking for a dessert that I could make for my brother’s girlfriend (who is sensitive to gluten), I came across a naturally gluten-free treat that was a flourless peanut butter cookie. I decided to make that for her. I ultimately came up with the ideal cookie for her after making a few adjustments to the original recipe, including the addition of some Nutella and a dash of salt. —Dana Hinck, Pensacola, Florida

    14. Grilled Banana Brownie Sundaes

    Together with my niece Amanda Jean, I always have a great time experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen. One of us will initiate the process by suggesting a recipe, and from there it simply develops—along with the accompanying mess. In this particular instance, the delicious end product was a grilled banana and brownie sundae. —Carol Farnsworth, Greenwood, Indiana, United States
