10 Creamy, Dreamy Desserts

  1. key lime pie ice cream

    No-Churn Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

    This dreamy ice cream has all the bright lime flavor of key lime pie -- even the crunchy, buttery graham cracker crust. It's a cinch to make and tastes far better than anything you could buy at the store!

  2. banana pudding

    Banana Pudding Parfaits

    Banana Pudding is an old-fashioned Southern dessert traditionally made with layers of Nilla wafers, vanilla pudding and sliced bananas. This version is a little more gourmet than most, and bucks tradition a bit, but still tastes wonderfully nostalgic and delicious.

  3. Ricotta Cheesecake with Fresh Raspberries

    Made with cream cheese, ricotta cheese and a ground almond crust, the cake is a hybrid between an American-style cheesecake and an Italian-style cheesecake. The tart sweetness of the jam and fresh raspberry topping is the perfect contrast to the cake, which isn’t overly sweet.

  4. tiramisu

    Irish Cream Tiramisu

    If you’re a fan of Baileys Irish Cream as I am, you’ll love this fun twist on tiramisu. It’s a dinner party regular at my house.

  5. chocolate cream pie

    Chocolate Cream Pie

    With a chocolate cookie crust, silky chocolate pudding center and pillowy whipped cream topping, this pie is a chocolate lover’s dream.

  6. coconut cream pie

    Coconut Cream Pie

    Based on the signature Coconut Cream Pie served at The Capital Grille, this dreamy pie has a coconut cookie crust on the bottom, a creamy coconut custard in the middle, and heaps of whipped cream and toasted coconut on top.

  7. tres leches cake

    Tres Leches Cake with Dulce de Leche Glaze

    Popular in Latin America, this is a light and fluffy cake is soaked with a mixture of three milks: sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. In this version, rum is added to the soaking liquid and a simple rum-spiked dulce de leche glaze covers the cake. My husband calls it “heaven on earth.”

  8. chocolate peanut butter icebox cake

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Icebox Cake

    This make-ahead cake doesn’t even require an oven. Simply layer store-bought chocolate wafers with peanut butter-flavored whipped cream in a loaf pan, and then chill the dessert overnight. In the fridge, the cookies soften and meld with the cream, creating a dessert that resembles a fancy layered mousse cake.

  9. ice cream sandwiches

    Semi-Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

    Kids love them, adults them, these ice cream sandwiches are hard to beat!

  10. berry trifle
