What dessert would you...

walk across hot coals to eat again?

Mine would be a cherry cream pie that was served at Cattleman's Cafe in Blue Ridge, TX back in the late 60's and early 70's. Best darned thing I've ever put into my mouth.

    I really do not care for desserts that much. But I will always remember a wonderful raspberry souffle omelet that I enjoyed in a little French restaurant in western Mass. It was heavenly and ranks up in my list of 10 best dishes that I have ever eaten.

    I know there will LOTS of folks that think im crazy.but----had a friend that used to make the moist fabulous fruit cakes 9with citron and watermelon pickles and fruit that she prepared herself-that she would soak for a year in brandy and gave out at the holidays---she would always give me an extra ---or 2!!---LOVED then---after a fine meal with a good cup of coffee!!!!---alas--she quit drinking and they were just not the same--also there is a simple--cheap--and deceptive dessert that was my dads favorite from WAY back--pre WW2 that my Gram made----my wife calls it "Figgy Pudding"---Gram called it fig squares and bannans---fine dice a pack of fig newrons---mix it a hand of smashed banannas---fold in whipped cream---set in fridge for 24 hours!!!! Heavenly---and VERY rich!!! I have had folks that refused to believe it was only that simple ---till they made it!!

    My mother's suet pudding. The memory is like a meteor across the sky of my memory. She'd make it every so often in the winter. The taste was somewhat scorched and raisiny and spicy, but with the hot lemon sauce drizzled on it the contrasts were like nothing, nothing at all I can describe.

    I have the recipe my mother used in an old family cookbook. One of these days I'm going to take the plunge and make a batch. So far my problem has been finding a supply of suet! People don't know what the hell it is any more.

    My late Aunt Bea, (I know, I know, LOL) used to make peach cobbler and pineapple upside down cake that was heavenly. She would bring the cobbler to reunions in a pan the size of a dishpan, and it would all get eaten.

    More recently, I have developed a real taste for good tiramasu.

    Not that they are a dessert, but my mothers divinity and home-made buckeyes. I would give anything to stand in the kitchen with her and help her eat, Ahem, make those.
    SHe passed on a little over a year ago, but her divinity was "divine".

    Anything my dear mother makes.....cakes, pies, cookies, candy. She is the QUEEN of cooking and baking. Everyone needs an Italian mother. I love my mother's baking! If I had to pick JUST ONE I would go for her lemon meringue pie. No, maybe it would be her banana nut cake, no maybe her apple pie, or her Easter cake. Mothers are awesome and they can sure BAKE!

    It should be something homemade but I am thinking of Lady Baltimore Fruit Basket Cake and Oregon Farms Carrot Cake because they both long gone.

    The tiramisu cups at Whole Foods. I dunno if it was a seasonal thing, but I was devastated when I stopped seeing them last fall. I hope they're back for the summer.

    Hello All,
    I am not a dessert person, but if it has chocolate and or cherries, I am ready for it.
    I hate to admit it, I like PepperRidgefarm 3 layer Coconut Cake. Uh, I like Red Velvet Cake.
    Okay, I like apple pie. Wait, uh, Oreo-Cookie Ice Cream is so good. Wait a minute, Dairy-Queen's
    Ice-Cream Cake can send a demon straight to heaven. Brownies, yes, brownies laced with... oh wow,
    I'm experiencing a sugar buzz...what's the topic?...
    Oh, yeah, I'm not a dessert person, but if it has chocolate and....
    Take Care,

    The one I would walk a mile for in anyone's shoes would have to be chocolate bread pudding. Or my mother-in laws pumpkin pecan pie.

    I would walk those coals for another slice of Banana Split pie, like they used to serve at Hoots, the long lost 24 hour coffeee slop of my early college years. A nice Banana Cream pie, with pineapple and maraschino cherries, MMMM!

    I'm not BIG on deserts but, I would walk over hot coals for my Wife's mincemeat pie, made with real meat and brandy and all kinds of who knows what, an old Iowa recipe. I have never in all my days tasted such a pie, the stuff that comes out of jars should be outlawed after you taste this real mincemeat. She will only make it around Christmas then that's it for at least a year.

    My Mom's Paper Bag Apple Pie with a slice of cheese and vanilla ice cream on top. (Don't knock it till you've tried it!) I also really miss Bill Knapp's Chocolate Sundae Cake. (Big Boy's Hot Fudge Cake just isn't the same, but I guess it will have to do)

    I, like tiki, love fruitcake. I also love French apple pie (the kind with raisins mixed in with the apples) with the white 'frosting' on the top crust. A&P used to make great French apple pies.
    Oh yeah!! Black Forest cake.

    My grandma's apple strudel still warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Of course it would have to be served by grandma and then we'd stay at her kitchen table and play one more game of canasta together. Good memory, that. :)

    I just recently had some 'Tres Leches' cake in New Mexico that was to die for. I guess it means three milk cake and i've already found some recipes to try to duplicate it, but havent tried yet.

    The Taqueria Los Hermanos in Tucker, GA (outside of Atlanta) makes a great 'Tres Leches'. I couldn't guess how the cake is dense, creamy, and light at the same time.

    I had a key lime milkshake at a produce market outside of the Everglades I will need to have at least once more (and in the middle of summer, it *was* like walking across hot coals to get to!)
