Dessert is my favorite course. I love trying new dessert recipes. It’s a weakness, I have a sweet tooth! While I love to bake from scratch, I don’t always have time for that. As a result I am a big fan of doctoring a cake mix. Growing up I wasn’t a big lover of cobblers or crisps, but as I’ve grown and matured they have earned a soft spot in my heart. Pies, cookies, cake, and lots of one pan desserts. We can’t forget the no-bake desserts either! There are plenty of luscious dessert choices below. Pick a category to get started!

Most Popular Dessert Recipes
There are some dessert recipes on this blog that have gone crazy on Pinterest and Facebook, and I’ve made them over and over again as well. Here are my top ten dessert recipes:
- Pineapple Dream Dessert – this dessert is popular year round and can be served at any holiday, taken along to potlucks and is great for barbecues and family gatherings.
- Thumbprint Cookies – This wonderful recipe is most popular during the holiday season and is an extremely popular Christmas cookie. It still comes in at #2!
- Saltine Toffee – Again, this is most popular during the holidays, but it can be made at any time of the year. Great as an edible gift idea!
- Sex in a Pan – While the name might be offensive to some, there’s no denying the sinful flavors of this decadent dessert! Perfect for potlucks and parties and sometimes called Robert Redford Dessert.
- Cream Puff Chocolate Eclair Cake – This is one of those desserts that everyone will be begging you for the recipe. Decadent and delicious, it’s great for special occasions and as a take along.
- Banana Upside Down Muffins – This dessert recipe garnishes so much attention from Pinterest it’s crazy! These muffins are definitely different and positively delicious!
- 3-Ingredient French Vanilla Peach Cobbler – How can you possibly go wrong with only three ingredients? Apparently you can’t because this dessert recipe is requested over and over again!
- Traditional English Trifle – I’ve actually had British people argue with me over whether or not this recipe is traditional. There are different recipes in different parts of England. Mine doesn’t use Jello (or jelly as it’s referred to in England) and that trips a lot of British folks up. I assure you though, there are plenty of English that agree with me that this is the real deal!
- Cake Mix Apple Cobbler in the Crock Pot – Throw it in the slow cooker and forget about it. When you come home, the house will smell heavenly!
- Homemade Baker’s Square French Silk Pie – I remember the restaurant as Poppin’ Fresh, but that was in the 80’s! This tastes just like the restaurant version and I make it every single Thanksgiving and Christmas without fail.
