"Treat yourself" means nothing without a nice dessert. Indulge in your favorites no matter where you are or what you're doing, thanks to these recipes for portable desserts to go. We're talking layered parfaits, mini banana cream pies, monster cookies, and more! You. Are. Welcome.
Cream Pie Whoopie Pies
As an alternative to melty, messy ice cream sandwiches , consider a batch of these pretty and portable desserts for your next get-together. Instead of a frozen dessert, the filling is made with fluffy marshmallow creme, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Pick your favorite or please a crowd with a mix of our flavor variations, including strawberry, coconut, banana, double-chocolate, and lemon.
Black and White Cookies
Shaped like a cookie but with a texture a bit reminiscent of a cake, these dessert favors are a classic at New York City delis for good reason. They're delicious and easy to enjoy as you go about your business! Ina Garten —who developed this sour cream-spiked recipe—agrees.
Carrot Snack Cake
Carrots in a bag? Not this snack time. A generous square of this cream cheese-frosted dessert to go will cure any and every craving, and thanks to some whole wheat flour, you get a little bonus fiber boost.
Neapolitan Marshmallow Treats
These fun Neapolitan treats settle any argument over which flavor is best. All three! Since they won't melt and are cut into single servings, these portable desserts are great to grab on the go. Just be sure to keep some hand sanitizer on hand because they're ooey-gooey, sticky good.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
Come on, you didn't think we'd forget the classic cookie, did you? Go with regular or gluten-free flour; either way, this dessert to go never disappoints. Unless you don't have enough, so we suggest stirring together a double batch!
Peanut Butter Cups
What makes these chocolate peanut butter cups better than the store-bought stuff? They're bigger (win) and feature twice as much peanut goodness (double win!), because there's nut butter in the middle and chopped nuts sprinkled on top. Prep this muffin tin dessert to-go in paper baking cups for easy snatching and mess-free eating.
Salted Caramel Fudge
We know, it might be tough to believe with that showy marble top, but this salted caramel fudge actually tastes as incredible as it looks. (Translation: like a masterpiece.) The secret to this ultra-nice dessert? A can or jar of dulce de leche and sea salt flakes. Run a knife across the top of the batter for an eye-catching swirled look.
Buy It: Nestle Dulce de Leche ($4, Target )
If you weren't mad for plaid before, you will be now. Bag the checkered shortbread cookies for a vintage picnic, potluck, or back-to-school treat. Bonus: You can freeze these cookies up to 3 months for make-ahead dessert favors!
Mini Blueberry Pies
Tart lemon, sweet blueberries, and the most adorable presentation ever—yep, these picnic-perfect petite pies are almost too good to be true. You can get them party-ready even quicker by starting with store-bought pastry instead of taking the from-scratch route; it'll be our little secret. No matter which base you choose, remember to top the nice dessert to-go with whipped cream before you snap that Instagram glamour shot.
Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels
Cute, low-maintenance, and coated in one of the greatest pairings ever made? A tin of this to-go pretzel treat is the ultimate dessert favor. Even better news: The no-bake treats require just three ingredients, 20 minutes, and a microwave to whip them up.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean giving up all the foods you love — not even desserts! Whether you make smart swaps like using fruit to sweeten your baked goods , rely on clever baking hacks or reach for treats that are low in carbs , there are plenty of ways to incorporate sweets into your healthy eating plan. Take this bright, lemony pound cake, for example. Heart-healthy olive oil and protein-rich Greek yogurt take the place of butter. Egg whites also help reduce calories, fat and cholesterol, and whole-wheat flour boosts fiber. You’ll end up with a classic pound cake — that you can feel good about indulging in!

65 Top-Rated Desserts Everyone Should Make At Least Once
In our opinion, no meal is complete without dessert, and this luscious collection of dessert recipes is so delicious you'll definitely be tempted to eat your desserts first. Whether you're in the mood for our classic Hummingbird Cake, easy Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, or something new like our Cheerwine Cherry Cupcakes, our collection of dessert recipes has a sweet treat for any occasion.
Our best desserts have solutions for hurried hosts, like our easy Cakey Strawberry Cobbler, which only requires 10 minutes of hands-on time. But we also have dessert recipes for impressing your next dinner party guests like layer cakes , pound cakes, pies, and tarts. We've got options for the spring—our Strawberry Lemonade Cake is a beautiful way to celebrate the season—and the fall (Sea Salt-Caramel Cake is calling our name). And don't worry, whether you're craving homemade ice cream or fixing a fruit pie, we have you covered. Now, you've just got to make sure to leave enough room for dessert!
If you love Southern Living, you'll know how proud we are of our Hummingbird Cake. We celebrate it every chance we get. It's not just pretty. It's not just tasty. It's a wonder. Thanks to Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, North Carolina, this pineapple-banana spice cake with cream cheese frosting became one of our most requested recipes. Decades after it graced the pages of our magazine, we still stand by Mrs. Wiggins' original, indulgent creation.
Atlantic Beach Pie
Often referred to as the easiest pie ever, this citrus pie from North Carolina Chef Bill Smith is just the dessert hot summer days need. One reviewer claimed it is the best lemon pie they've ever eaten.
Cakey Strawberry Cobbler
Fresh strawberries and cake-like filling bake together to create this delicious batter cobbler. You can substitute sliced stone fruit, like peaches, for the strawberries if you prefer, but we love the taste of strawberries and a dash of lemon zest in this cobbler. You can easily refrigerate the leftovers, but don't expect to have any!
Easy Peach Cobbler
We can't get enough of fresh peaches—especially in a warm cobbler with a gorgeous, golden brown crust. If you're going to try a new recipe for a peach dish this season, make it this one.
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
This anytime hit is good enough to make Grandma proud. What's the trick? Browning butter. This simple step gives that classic cookie dough its signature taste and chewy, crisp texture. It's a quick, extra step worth taking every time.
A simple list of ingredients that you probably almost always have on hand in your pantry is used to create a decadent chocolate dessert that can be described as a mix of cake and pudding. If there's one tip we have for you, it's that no matter how tempted you may be, absolutely do not stir the cobbler after pouring the water over the chocolate mixture. This helps create the pudding pockets while it's in the oven.
Egg Custard Pie
We think this old-fashioned pie still deserves a spot on dessert tables today. You may be surprised to learn that you just need a handful of ingredients to pull together a dessert that guests of all ages will enjoy.
Shaker Lemon Pie
Straight from the pages of the Junior League of Charleston, West Virginia's Mountain Measures cookbook, this old-fashioned pie deserves a comeback. Made with thinly sliced whole lemons—peels and all—this incredibly easy citrus dessert only calls for four ingredients.
Sea Salt-Caramel Cake
This cake may well be the ultimate in layer cake decadence. While these tender cake layers taste divine, it's the caramel frosting that really wows. It's outrageously rich—and doesn't require the use of a candy thermometer. In this recipe, you'll see that the rumor is true: Salt really does bring out, enrich, and enlarge the flavor of the sweet caramel.
Cream Cheese Pound Cake
You can't go wrong with a cake so beloved. Look no further for the perfect pound cake recipe. This traditional cake is extra-rich. It's also sturdy and substantial because of the cream cheese, and it is always, always in style. Fourth of July? Perfect. Thanksgiving? Ideal. Christmas? Nothing better. Half-birthdays? Yes. We've even been known to dream up holidays on random Wednesday afternoons just to get in the kitchen to make this beauty.
Hot Buttered Rum Bread Pudding
Is there anything more comforting or indulgent than a bread pudding? Maybe, but taking one look at this buttered pan of bread pudding, we can't think of anything we would rather nibble on a chilly fall evening. Though you are free to make this dessert in summer if you have a craving for a rum dessert.
The batter for this chocolate cake is mixed together right in the pan, so there's no dirty mixing bowl in the sink. Originally created to make during leaner times, it also doesn't call for any eggs or milk. We top the simple cake with a layer of fudgy icing sprinkled with toasted pecans for an even sweeter finish,
Strawberry-Lemonade Layer Cake
You can assemble this recipe for Strawberry-Lemonade Layer Cake up to two days ahead of time, minimizing prep time—which we love. Be sure to store at room temperature. Also, you can freeze cooled layers for up to a month in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, ensuring that you are always ready to assemble a layer cake for impromptu parties and get-togethers anytime during the day or night.
Mississippi Mud Cake
Imagine the richest, darkest, most indulgent chocolate dessert you've ever eaten. Now add some marshmallows, and you've got this decadent yet simple-to-bake cake. Mississippi is known for many things, but a Mississippi Mud Cake is one of the tastiest things we can trace back to the great state of Mississippi.
Chewy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars
Bite-sized and nutty, these bars are great for tucking into lunch boxes or for sweet and indulgent after-dinner treats. This recipe also has a surprising origin. We weren't exactly excited to test our old microwave column recipes again, but these chocolate-peanut blondies truly surprised us. We whipped them up and had to immediately make another batch. They're easy, the perfect combination of homemade and crowd-pleasing.
Classic Chocolate Pound Cake
This moist, classic chocolate cake is dusted with powdered sugar to create a slice that chocolate lovers will dream of for days. Plus, with just 30 minutes needed, this traditional cake is a great recipe for experienced and novice bakers alike.
Red Velvet Brownies
This scrumptious, melt-in-your-mouth treat combines two things almost everyone loves: red velvet and brownies. Our red velvet brownies are a bite-size version of the classic cake. Top them with a decadent cream cheese frosting for the ultimate dessert. It is just special enough—a few degrees beyond a traditional chocolate brownie—and it can be dressed up so easily with a beautiful topping of frosting, icing, cream cheese, or whipped cream.
Classic Chess Pie
It may be simple, but that doesn't make this classic dessert any less impressive. We use refrigerated pie crust to help pull together this old-fashioned pie recipe with ease.
Black-and-Blue Buttermilk Tart
This enticing topping of bright berries is just another reminder to revel in the bounty of berries Southerners are lucky enough to experience each summer. This creamy tart and sweet-and-salty buttery cracker crust is topped with a beautiful mix of blueberries and blackberries, but it is equally delicious with strawberries, peaches, or your favorite fresh fruit.
Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Is an ice cream sandwich your go-to summertime dessert? Then it's time to give your typical ice cream sandwich an upgrade. Now the fan-favorite ice cream bar can become a crowd-pleasing dessert. This decadent ice-cream cake is worthy of slicing. Make the whole cake ahead and freeze until ready to serve.
Chocolate-Bourbon Pecan Pie
We're Southerners. We know our pecan pie, and this twist on a regional favorite has us wishing for pecan harvest. We'll spend days picking up pecans in the orchard if it means we can conjure this chocolate-bourbon concoction in the kitchen. We have also gained a new appreciation for whiskey. The liquor goes way beyond drinking and finds its way into sauces, braises, and especially desserts.
Peach-Bourbon Upside-Down Bundt Cake
Next time you think you need to run to the grocery store before a summer party for a premade, store-bought dessert, think again. Set aside some time to practice your cooking skills and make this Peach-Bourbon Upside-Down Bundt Cake. With its medley of flavors and infusion of fresh seasonal peaches, it will be leagues better than anything you find covered in plastic in a bakery section. Garnish with a drizzle of homemade glaze for a pretty, party-worthy finish.
Red Velvet Cake Balls
When we think of velvet, we think smooth, luxurious, elegant, beautiful, indulgent. And it's true: all of those words can be used to describe this decadent but festive cake balls recipe. Plus, the frosting and sprinkles are a scene-stealer. This tasty creation is made out of red velvet cake that is bonded together with homemade cream cheese frosting and coated in white chocolate for a combination you can't pass up. Don't take our word for it. You've got to taste it for yourself.
Cakey Lemon Brownies
These easy-to-make bar cookies have the chewy, cakey texture of a brownie , but all of the bright and tangy flavor of a lemon bar. Feeling a little extra? Garnish with a few lemon slices for an extra bright, in both flavor and looks. All you need are pretty, thin slices of lemon, which dazzle on top of the brownie slices.
Fresh Peach Ice Cream
When peach season rolls in—in the South, any time from May to September—we're out in the orchard, picking plump, sweet ingredients to churn into this sweet mixture, which is one of our absolute favorite ice cream recipes. We guarantee that your family will ask for this chilly treat over and over again. Best of all, the seven-ingredient mixture requires no cooking, just stirring.
Spiked Eggnog Bundt Cake
Did you think eggnog was just for December holiday parties? Think again. This light and fluffy Bundt cake makes eggnog accessible all year round—in warm weather and in cool weather—though we have to admit, it is still perfect for family gatherings around the holidays. Just when you thought Bundt cake couldn't get any better—eggnog and nutmeg raise the bar.
Fudgy Flourless Chocolate-Pecan Cookies
Fudgy and flourless? It's possible, and this simple chocolatey recipe is proof. Thanks to whipped egg whites, the cookies are airy and crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside, like a brownie in cookie form.
Red, White, and Blue Poke Cake
The ultimate patriotic dessert for a Fourth of July celebration, this cake has everything: bursting berries, rich mascarpone frosting, and fresh fruit filling. It has red, white, and blue to spare. Our patriotic spin on poke cake is the coolest dessert of summer. With a cake this pretty and patriotic, it serves as decoration and dessert all at once.
If you've seen sweet, plump nectarines at your local grocery store but have refrained from buying them because you wondered how best to use them, look no further than this fresh, pandowdy. Here, nectarines pair with cherries for a beautifully cooked fruit under a pastry crust. As the dish cools, the broken crust absorbs the sweet juices from the cooked fruit, creating a deliciously messy dessert. So next time you see nectarines in the fruit aisle, pick up a few—two pounds, actually—and try out this delectable recipe.
Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Buttermilk-Cream Cheese Frosting
Inspired by a classic carrot cake , these light, fluffy carrot cake cupcakes are infused with even more bright flavor with the moist Pineapple Filling. Finish them off with adorable eggs for easter or simply pipe the Buttercream-Cream Cheese Frosting on top in whatever design you'd like for a slice-free, party-ready dessert.
Brown Sugar Cookie Stars
These Brown Sugar Cookie Stars are the closest you'll get to earning a gold star straight from your oven. Perfect for any celebration, from the Fourth of July to Christmas time, the touch of brown sugar gives this sugar cookie a deeper, richer taste than a traditional recipe.
Georgia Pecan Double-Decker Brownies
We know that we don't need to convince you to try a new brownie recipe, but we're still going to gush about how much we love this one. They are thick and fudgy—hence the double-decker in its name—with an accessible, comfortable depth of flavor. Speckled with pecans, they sit on a perfectly crumbly layer of chocolate wafer crust you'll taste in every bite. Don't let this recipe pass you by.
The Ultimate Carrot Cake
A classic at the pinnacle of its powers, our recipe for The Ultimate Carrot Cake is a multi-purpose, always-appropriate star of the dessert table. It is dense and moist, an ideal no-fail recipe for when you need a reliable go-to cake. We went for three thick layers plus a creamy brown sugar-cream cheese frosting. For additional edible decoration, try our recipe for candied carrot curls, pretty helixes that add something special to the display. It's a traditional cake, but with a few thoughtful touches, it feels brand new.
Homemade Cookies-and-Cream Ice Cream
Here, five ingredients come together in a swirl of cookies and cream. All you need is your electric ice cream maker and a little freezing time. This combination elevates a typical summer afternoon ice cream treat to a memorable experience—certainly a moment to savor. For a party, we like to showcase scooped cones in decorative glassware for a personal touch.
Caramel Apple Cake
Looking out your window, you may imagine the leaves changing green to red to gold as you smell fresh apple cake baking in your oven. We would bake this dessert any time of year just to imagine the arrival of autumn, but it's true that this cake is at its best in September, October, and November when fresh apple harvests send crisp, sweet, freshly-picked apples dripping with flavor into our fruit baskets.
Red Velvet Ice-Cream Cake
This frozen dessert comes together quickly. After mixing, this ice cream cake recipe just needs a little time to set in the freezer. It's an ideal blend, with its depth of flavor enhanced by fresh berries on top. Plus, its red, white, and blue layers make it the perfect treat to pull out of the freezer after a Fourth of July feast.
Buttermilk-Lime Mini Cakes with Vanilla-Mascarpone Buttercream
You know those desserts that make everyone go "Wow!" when they bite into them? This is one of those desserts. As pretty to look at as it is to slice into, it will be hard to have just one bite of this decadent dessert. With a thick swirl of vanilla mascarpone on top, it mixes buttermilk and lime in a substantial cake with a delightful, dainty presentation.
Lemon Bundt Cake
If you can't get enough citrus in your life, you may want to try this Lemon Bundt Cake recipe. With one bite, it will transport you to the breezy tropics, or at least a sunny nearby lemon grove. This recipe gets just the right bit of punch from the grated lemon zest and fresh lemon juice. The result: one of the best, and simplest, cakes you'll ever make. Add our two-ingredient glaze and, for added effect, candied lemons—they taste great scattered atop the cake.
Mississippi Mud Cheesecake
Fluffy marshmallows, chopped pecans, and chocolate frosting—who knew that mud could be so delicious? Mississippi did. This Southern state knows how to do a chocolate dessert just right, and we've taken it to another level in our Mississippi Mud Cheesecake. Just look at those crunchy, nutty pecans; smooth, chewy mini marshmallows; and decadent, chocolatey cheesecake. There's definitely nothing better than these treats to pacify a chocoholic.
Sprinkle Sandwich Cookies
As cute as they are addicting, it may be hard to eat just one. These colorful cookies are perfect for a gift box of holiday treats, and you can use different colored sprinkles throughout the year to celebrate the seasons, your favorite school's team, or any special holiday. With two cookies sandwiching together vanilla buttercream, what's there not to love?
Coca Cola Chocolate Cake
Our cola cake is simply one of the best in the world. The magical brew of carbonated cola is the secret to the tender texture of the cake and chocolate frosting. You can use any number of similar colas, but since Coca-Cola is the quintessential Southern beverage—first blended in Atlanta (where the ever-popular Coca-Cola factory welcomes visitors to this day) in the early 20th century, then disseminated in mid-1900s soda fountains across the country—we created the ultimate Cola Cake. It's a sheet cake with a rich syrup, and it certainly lives up to the Southern beverage that anchors it.
Rainbow Sherbet Cake
Why eat sherbet with a bowl and spoon when you can make it oh so much more fun? We gave this classic dessert a new spin by turning this creamy springtime treat into a refreshing cake. We took a few of our favorite flavors–pineapple, orange, raspberry–and paired them with pound cake and whipping cream. Summer has begun, and we're going to celebrate in sherbet style.
Dr Pepper Texas Sheet Cake
Everything is bigger in Texas. Everything is more decadent there too, it seems. Somehow, Texas claimed the sheet cake as its own in the mid-20th century, perhaps because of the pecans, an ingredient that grows in abundance throughout the Lone Star State. Better yet, this cake takes its cues not only from the classic, but also from the beloved flavor of Texas-made Dr Pepper too. The defining element is its shape—and, of course, the icing, which has to be heated and poured on the warm, just-out-of-the-oven cake. The result is a rich, chocolaty treat that's iconic in Texas.
Ultimate Apple Pie
Buxton Hall isn't just known for their BBQ. Their in-house pastry chef, Ashley Capps, serves blue ribbon-worthy pies daily, and she gave us the inside scoop to their legendary Ultimate Apple Pie. Serve this beauty at Thanksgiving, and you're sure to have guests asking for to-go slices for the road.
Cheerwine Cherry Cupcakes with Cherry-Swirl Frosting
Inspired by the classic North Carolina cherry-flavored soda, these cupcakes are the cherry on top for any event. This recipe lets you transform your favorite way to bake a cake into a cherry treat. Whether you combine the bubbly drink with a recipe for homemade white cake or pound cake or a packaged cake mix , the result is a pale pink crumb that tastes of almond extract and mild cherry.
No-Bake Lemon Icebox Pie
Zesty is the perfect word for this refreshing citrus dessert. It is completely invigorating on a hot summer day. And, lo and behold, there's no baking involved. With just 15 minutes of hands-on time, you'll have a gingersnap-based crust that's prime for freezing. After freezing, pile in the cool, creamy filling, and you're ready to serve.
As Southern as they come, making your first batch of Homemade Pralines is like a right of passage. One of the many dazzling and flavorful things to hail from New Orleans, these sweet and creamy treats have become a holiday tradition for many across the South. They make wonderful food gifts anytime of year, but there's something delightful about in baking a batch just to have at home too.
Triple-Chocolate Buttermilk Pound Cake
We took the traditional pound cake recipe and raised it a stunning, triple-chocolate twist. This cake means business. A duo of glazes—one creamy chocolate, the other subtle buttermilk—comes together atop this dreamy confection. It's indulgent and, we admit, so much fun to eat and serve. Chocolate enthusiasts will be over the moon for this recipe, but it has enough unexpected flavor—thanks to the addition of the buttermilk glaze—that you'll also win over the harder-to-please dessert eaters at the table. Warning: You—and they—won't be able to resist a second slice. Go for it. We won't tell.
Fresh Apple Cake
This classic is so fresh and substantial that it can stand on its own. Thinly sliced fresh apples (the recipe calls for two and a half pounds of Granny Smith apples) create rich, moist, irresistible layers of fruit within the cake. This cake can truly do it all. Go simple or adorn it if you'd like to take the recipe a delicious step further. Take your pick of your favorite topping, and cover the apple cake with your choice of Browned Butter Frosting, Cream Cheese Frosting, or Dark Chocolate Frosting. You can't go wrong with your choice. It's just that good.
Grilled Peach Cobbler
The fire gives this classic an extra smoky, caramelized flavor that, we're willing to bet, you won't be able to resist. Serve hot off the grill or at room temperature. Crown the cobbler with a scoop of vanilla for an extra sweet touch. This dish is infused with smoke, creating a luscious mixture of textures. Just the right blend of gooey and crisp emerges as the soft slices of caramelized peaches sink underneath the crisp sweet biscuit crust. Pick up a basket of peaches at the farmers' market in the morning, make this gooey treat, and we guarantee that your afternoon will be smoky and sweet.
The Red Velvet Cake
This cake requires an article before the title. It's not just any red velvet cake. It is The Red Velvet Cake. For good reason: Red velvet cakes are almost universally loved. When you cut into a cake and realize it's red velvet, not just vanilla or chocolate, euphoria sets in. It's a very special cake. Red velvet has even been celebrated in film, memorialized in comedic form. In 1989, an armadillo-shaped groom's cake in Steel Magnolias kicked off a cult following for red velvet. The craze has continued for decades, fueled in part by the red velvet cakes that have graced the Southern Living Christmas cover three times.
Praline Bread Pudding
Talk about comfort food. We were, weren't we? This dish oozes sweetness, the perfect Southern indulgence. It's no typical bread pudding, though. We gave our favorite bread pudding a Louisiana-style revival with the addition of an oh-so-decadent homemade Praline Sauce. Our Test Kitchen recommends using stale, day-old bread—better for soaking up the sweet custard. So once your bread has graced your shelf just a day too long, you'll know it's time to whip up this sweet treat. We love dipping generous helpings into petite clear dishes—which are all the better to showcase the layers of gooey praline goodness that await you during the dessert course.
Mini Strawberry Tarts
These sweet strawberry treats start with a pistachio crust, an unexpected, nutty, and subtle twist on the form. A dreamy mixture of cream cheese, lemon juice and zest, and whipped cream are folded together before filling the individual tarts. Toss the fresh strawberries in sugar, just before topping the tarts, to give them just a hint of added sweetness. These miniscule desserts are almost too pretty to eat…almost. They are elegant and accessible, and they pack major flavor in tiny tart form, so they are perfect for dinner parties, when you want to impress but don't want to skimp on taste.
This Fudge Pie starts with semi-sweet chocolate and pecans and ends with a dollop of ice cream on top. To keep things easy, it calls for a frozen pie crust, but the end result is so tasty, anyone who cuts a slice may swear it's fully from scratch. Delicious doesn't even begin to describe it.
The Lemon Cheese Layer Cake
Expecting a twist on cheesecake? You're in for an even sweeter surprise. These layers are filled with a buttery, rich lemon curd instead. Light, sweet, and tart: It's a beguiling blend. The curd is smooth, a bright citrus explosion within a sweet cheesecake concoction. It's like nothing you've ever tasted. The Lemon-Orange Buttercream frosting coats the exterior of the cake like a sweet, thick veil. It opens to the lemon curd interior and doubles, nay, triples the citrus flavor. Perfect for summer, this sweet cake is best served outside, under a starry sky, surrounded by glowing candles and light, fresh cocktails.
Easy Blackberry Cobbler
Make the most of summer's blackberry bounty with this recipe for blackberry cobbler. Our farmers' markets and grocery stores are filled with blackberries for sale, and we've already picked up more than one container. This versatile, deep-purple-hued berry is a winner. A winning fruit demands a top-notch recipe, which we provide here. This recipe for blackberry cobbler is so simple that it only uses six ingredients. Six! Easy to make on even the most harried of nights, you can make it special by topping it with whipped cream and garnish with sprigs of fragrant mint. Confession: We planted an herb garden last spring in anticipation of just this sort of recipe. There's nothing quite like a garnish of fresh herbs in a flavorful summer dessert.
Strawberry Dream Cake
This Strawberry Dream Cake is an elegant and eye-catching surprise! It's sure to astonish at any prince-themed birthday party. The fluffy whipped frosting and upright strawberries make for a stunningly beautiful display.
Coconut Chiffon Cake
White as a Sunday glove, coconut is the doyenne of Southern layer cakes, a masterpiece of home cookery that has crowned dining room sideboards for more than a hundred years. Is there anything as delicate as Coconut Chiffon? It's an almost diaphanous mixture, flavorful and dainty and sweet. We see it gracing the dessert tables at showers, weddings, luncheons—anywhere that calls for casual elegance and a pretty (impressive) dessert. It doesn't call attention to itself, though—this is no red velvet cake—but it is such a beautiful, comfortable addition to any event that, no doubt, all of its slices will disappear on cocktail plates to be smiled at and savored.
Strawberries-and-cream sheet cake.
When served in a dish, strawberries and cream are a favorite English dessert and traditional teatime accompaniment. This strawberries and cream riff on the sheet cake will have your guests fawning over a new way to enjoy the fruit and cream mix. One of the most versatile desserts, strawberries and cream is always appropriate—it's delicate and luscious, a dulcet harmony of flavors that we can't get enough of. The fruity thrill of strawberry, the cooling comfort of cream—it's great any time. Taking that idea and transforming it into the ultimate berry sheet cake was no small feat. But we did it, and with the help of this fantastic recipe, you can too.
The Jam Cake
Jam cakes are deeply rooted in Appalachia, a region where ingredients like sugar were once expensive and scarce. There, natural sweeteners like jams, fruits, and jellies were used to sweeten cakes. Coincidentally, the berries and fruit preserves delivered a flavor so rich sugar alone could never compete. That's why the jam cake is such a prize dessert still today.
Lemon-Orange Chiffon Cake
Serve this decadent spring dessert at your next ladies' luncheon, shower, or party and wow the crowd—all of your friends and family—with a garnish of edible flowers, which are easily purchased and shipped from online retailers. Here, we've garnished the completed and cooled Lemon-Orange Chiffon Cake with edible flowers, kumquat slices, and a lovely lemon-orange buttercream frosting. It's an airy dessert, one easily enjoyed at a party or luncheon with minimal mess and minimal effort. The texture is a treasure, with the diaphanous hint of chiffon complemented by the perfectly paired citrus duo of vibrant lemon and exuberant orange.
The Lane Cake
In March 1966, Southern Living featured a recipe for Lane Cake in its second issue. Our latest twist? Dried peaches (finely diced and ridiculously delicious) stand in for raisins, and the traditional meringue frosting gets a spirited makeover with—get this—a triple shot of peach schnapps. This is your summer cake. The levity of meringue plus the playful taste of peach schnapps makes this cake a fruity cocktail of a dessert. We love it at summer parties, and the meringue frosting creates a dramatic visual, sweeping and soaring and inviting guests to partake in a party of a cake. It's covered in clouds but it's a substantial sweet. It's a dessert that defies gravity.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Moist, delicious, and surprisingly easy, this upside-down cake may become your go-to recipe for entertaining. After you try it for the first time, you'll wonder how you ever got on without this recipe card in your life.
No matter what you call it, this chocolate dessert with layers of pudding and whipped topping is sure to delight. We bet the first bite will bring back memories of summers past.

Bananas Foster II
This bananas foster is the perfect dessert enjoyed by itself with ice cream or served over pancakes for the best brunch treat. "OMG!!! Who knew bananas could taste so yummy?!?! What an easy, impressive, and delicious dessert," says reviewer Joy Dauterman.
The Best Banana Pudding
Banana pudding is a classic no-bake dessert that everyone always loves. It's simply layers of vanilla pudding, whipped topping, vanilla wafers, and bananas then you have the perfect Southern dessert just like grandma used to make.
Old Fashioned Creamy Rice Pudding
This is the perfect recipe for using up your leftover rice — or you can make up a fresh batch, if you want. You can use golden or regular raisins, though some reviewers like to use other fresh fruit, like peaches. They also suggest topping the pudding with a big helping of cinnamon.
Strawberry Angel Food Dessert
This easy trifle-style dessert can be made even easier by using a store-bought angel food cake. Simply crumble the cake then layer it with cream cheese, whipped topping, strawberries, and strawberry glaze in a trifle dish or a 9x13-inch baking pan.
Green Grape Salad
"I have been making this for a few years & it never fails to get RAVES!! I use whatever seedless grapes are on sale...a mix of black, red & green is wonderful!! After grapes are dry, I mix all of the ingredients together, stir in grapes & you are done," says home cook Pattidon.
These Chocolate Pretzels are the ultimate versatile treat. You can top them with any flavor of Hershey's Kisses — try the seasonal ones for special holidays — or mix it up and top them with Rolos or Snickers.
Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
If you're guilty of eating the cookie dough right off the spoon, try this edible cookie dough that is raw egg-free. You seriously won't be able to get enough of it.
- Do This One Thing to Make Edible Cookie Dough Safe to Eat (and It's Not Just Leaving Out the Eggs)
This "pizza" starts with a giant sugar cookie for the crust and is topped with a marshmallow crème and cream cheese sauce. After that, you can use any fruit that you like for the topping, try strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, peaches, and pineapple.
Cookie Salad I
"This is a great recipe that we use for potlucks, family gatherings, and the like. It is always a hit! The cookies don't get soggy at all, in fact I like it best the next day," says reviewer MNISCOLD. You can also use different cookies, like Oreos or sugar cookies, if you like.
Muz's Drop Sugar Cookies
"These cookies are quick, easy, and delicious. I rolled the dough, which was very easy to handle and not sticky, into balls and flattened half of them with the bottom of a glass dipped into green-colored sugar. I did the same with the second half but used crushed peppermints mixed with sugar. The cookies were round and looked like bakery cookies," says home cook theodosia.
Joy's Prizewinning Trifle
This trifle is packed with fruits, like kiwi, strawberries, bananas, and pineapple, plus some extra sweetness from the angel food cake and whipped cream. Feel free to make a fun design with the fruit on the inside of the trifle bowl for a dessert that is truly wow-worthy.
Bananas Foster Chimichangas
These chimichangas are a fun take on traditional bananas foster. You'll use flour tortillas and stuff them with the bananas foster mixture (bananas, brown sugar, rum, and butter) and then deep fry the entire chimichanga. After that, you can serve them topped with ice cream, drizzled with syrup, or just by themselves.
Summer Berry Parfait with Yogurt and Granola
If you're looking for a lighter dessert, this parfait is the way to go. It's simply yogurt, fruit, and granola for a sweet treat without the guilt.
Lemon Pound Cake Cookies
These cake-like cookies are fluffy and soft with a good amount of lemon flavor. If you like them extra lemony, you can top them with a lemon glaze or add fresh lemon zest to the dough.
Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk
"Chia seeds make great desserts and are high in omega-3s. It uses agave (or stevia if you prefer) as a sweetener instead of sugar. Stir again before serving and top with fresh fruit and another dash of cinnamon or spices," says recipe creator Donna Kim.
Mud and Worms
Whether you call it mud or dirt, both kiddos and adults will love this dessert. It's simply a chocolate pudding topped with crushed Oreos (to look like dirt) and you can add some sour gummy creepy crawlies to make it look like bugs in the dirt.
Caramel Popcorn with Marshmallow
"This was so delicious and easy to make. It makes a ton of the caramel topping I actually had enough for at least 3 bags of popcorn. I saved some and a few days later slowly heated up in the microwave and it tasted just as wonderful and it was a quick treat that day for my family. I also added chocolate chips to one batch and a little extra salt and it was simply divine," says home cook boniklick.
A Peanutty S'more
Kids and adults alike will be begging for these s'mores again and again. They're incredibly easy to make over the campfire — but the secret ingredient is the peanut butter cup instead of a traditional piece of plain chocolate.
These cookie bars start with a layer of graham crackers and are topped with marshmallows, brown sugar and butter, coconut, and almonds. They are the perfect rich dessert, so watch out, they won't last long in your house!
Chocolate Sugar Drop Cookies
These double chocolate cookies are sweetened with both cocoa powder and chocolate chips for a chocolate lover's dream. The best part is, you don't even need to roll them, just plop them on your baking sheet and throw them in the oven.
If you like donuts, you have to try this recipe that simply starts with a package of refrigerated biscuit dough. Fry your dough then top it with powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, jam, or anything else you're craving.
Glazed Doughnut Strawberry Shortcake
Two desserts collide in this recipe. All you need is glazed doughnuts plus strawberries, and whipped cream (either homemade or store-bought). After that, just cut your doughnuts in half and assemble your tasty strawberry shortcakes.
Funfetti® Cake Batter Rice Krispies® Treats
Switch up your traditional Rice Krispies treats and fill them with Funfetti cake mix and Fruity Pebbles cereal. The result is an extra-sweet treat that is so good everyone will be asking for the recipe.
Sure, traditional cannolis are good, but pumpkin cannolis take the Italian dessert to a whole new level. These cannolis have a pumpkin, mascarpone, ricotta, and vanilla pudding filling and are garnished with chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles at both ends.

24 Best Cinnamon Desserts
It might be pumpkin spice season, but I also think of the colder months as the perfect time to break out my many cinnamon desserts .
Though it gets used year-round, there’s something undeniably warm and cozy about cinnamon.
Sure, I’ll eat cinnamon rolls in the heart of summer, and palmiers are my go-to quick cookie for a last-minute coffee morning with the gals.
But warm apple cinnamon bars, spiced scones, and cinnamon bread just make those dark, cold mornings a little more toasty.
Keep this list of 24 sweet cinnamon desserts close because once you get started, you’ll want to try them all!
1. Cinnamon Dessert Nachos with Salted Caramel Apple Dip
I’ve been making a variety of dessert nachos for some time, and they’re always a hit!
There’s something so satisfying about the crunch of baked tortillas covered in cinnamon sugar, combined with an assortment of toppings.
For this recipe, you’ll be making a jaw-dropping salted caramel apple dip that you should keep in a dish for dipping. This way, the “nacho” chips don’t go soggy.
If you like caramel apple pie , this recipe is for you!
2. Crispy Sand Tart Cookies With Cinnamon
Sand tart cookies are essentially very thin sugar cookies. They can be as thin as ⅛ inch and will crisp up in the oven.
They come together much like any other cookie recipe, but the trick to getting them so thin is to chill the dough.
I like to roll mine between parchment sheets and keep the dough in the fridge until it is hard enough to cut.
Be careful when baking. Since they’re so thin, they will burn quickly if you don’t keep an eye on them.
3. Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon rolls might just be the most indulgent cinnamon dessert out there.
Served warm and smothered in cream cheese frosting, they’re tender, sweet, and lightly spiced with a cinnamon sugar filling.
Though some recipes don’t include butter in the filling, I find it helps to make sure it gets spread evenly across the dough.
It also adds a nice nutty flavor once it starts to bake and brown.
You’ll need a bread machine for this recipe, or you could use a simple brioche .
I like to make my dough first thing and keep it in the fridge for the day.
Before bed, roll it out and make up your rolls. Wrap and keep them in the fridge overnight and pull to rise for an hour or so before baking.
4. Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bake
French toast casserole is the perfect thing to make for a crowd.
Make it the night before and let the custard soak into the bread. Bake first thing in the morning for a warm and filling start to the day.
For this super fast recipe, you’ll be using cinnamon raisin bread from the store – but don’t be afraid to try making your own .
5. Easy Cinnamon Cookies
These soft and chewy cookies are easy and delicious. They’re spiced with cinnamon and baked just until the edges turn golden.
Starting with room-temperature ingredients, make sure to beat the butter and sugar until they turn pale and extra fluffy.
Slowly incorporate the eggs and mix the dry by hand until it just forms a dough.
These are great by themselves, but a few white chocolate chips would make a nice creamy extra.
6. Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Recipe
When it comes to snickerdoodles, I love to throw in some dark chocolate chunks or chopped pecans.
The sugar-cookie-like treats are covered in cinnamon sugar before baking and are soft and incredible served warm.
But I do like to mix things up a little with added extras.
Another great alternative would be to make smaller cookies and sandwich them together with cream cheese frosting.
7. Cinnamon Apple Dumplings
These apple dumplings are the perfect end to a winter dinner.
Once the dough is formed, you’ll need to wrap the apples, pitching the seams, so they’re enclosed.
A great way to infuse extra flavor is to poach the apples in cinnamon simple syrup for a few minutes before wrapping and baking.
Depending on the size of your apples, they can be individual servings. Try baking them in cute little dishes with a drizzle of warm creme Anglaise.
8. Sugary Cinnamon Twists
These incredible twists need a little love – and an hour to rise – to bake into the perfect mid-morning snack.
Once your simple yeast-based dough has been mixed and allowed to rise for an hour, you can punch it down before rolling and cutting it into rectangles.
Don’t be shy with the cinnamon sugar. After another quick rise, they will bake for about 15 minutes.
Drizzle them with glaze for a cross between a cinnamon roll and a donut.
9. Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
Speaking of donuts!
They might not be fluffy and fried, but these baked donuts are light and tender, with a beautiful sugary coating.
Be careful when mixing the dough. You’ll want it just combined for the most tender crumb!
I love to make these in my mini-donut pan and hooking them onto the rim of my hot chocolate mug.
10. Churro Waffles
Waffles make for a sweet change from the usual pancakes.
There’s just something special about the crisp edges and the pockets full of syrup.
Once you have your waffles are made, brush them with some melted butter and coat them in cinnamon sugar.
For an extra kick, try broiling for a few minutes to get some caramelization on the sugar.
11. Cinnamon Apple Cake
I can’t say enough good things about this cake.
It’s incredibly moist, perfectly flavored with both brown sugar and cinnamon, and packed full of chopped apples.
I love the bigger pieces of apple used here, but you can make them smaller if you prefer the flavor to be more evenly distributed.
The cake is moist enough that you don’t need anything on the side. But it wouldn’t hurt to serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream, either.
12. Irish Potato Candy
We’ve talked about potato candy before, and I know you raised your eyebrows then and chuckled at the thought of it.
So here’s a recipe that’s a little easier to visualize.
These little bites might look like mini-potatoes, but they’re actually a creamy mixture of butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, brown sugar, coconut, and cinnamon.
As far as truffles go, these are creamy and cool on the inside, with a fabulously sweet and spicy coating.
13. Cinnamon Pudding Cake
Even with a moist cake, I often add an extra sauce. It’s not about fixing a dry cake. It’s about adding another layer of flavor.
For this recipe, the spiced cake is filled with chopped pecans and baked with a fantastic caramel poured right over the top.
Once baked, the sauce will seep through, infusing flavor, and collect on the bottom, much like a pineapple upside-down cake.
Just be sure to invert the cake while it’s still warm to prevent it from cooling too much and getting stuck.
14. Mexican Cinnamon Cookies
Also known as reganadas, these are traditionally made from puff pastry and served on the Day of the Dead.
The layers are thought to represent the souls of the people waiting in purgatory.
For this recipe, you’ll be making more of a crunchy cookie, using lard as a binder and for moisture.
Once the dough is together, it needs kneading a few times before being portioned.
Coat them in the powdered sugar and the cinnamon mix while still warm.
15. Snickerdoodle Cupcakes
Sour cream and buttermilk keep these cupcakes ultra moist, and the cinnamon sugar topping will add a nice crust to the finished cake.
Cream cheese frosting is the perfect partner, especially when you sprinkle it with extra cinnamon.
Or an excellent sweet option would be to top with a salted caramel frosting .
16. Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Palmiers
With just three ingredients and around 10 minutes, you can have a tray of these crisp cinnamon cookies in the oven.
Using frozen puff pastry and cinnamon sugar, the only caveat is that you need the pastry to thaw before you can roll and cut.
I like to roll mine from either end, making a cute double swirl effect. But they look just as effective as one big swirl.
If I’m craving something extra, I’ll even grate a little dark chocolate over the filling.
17. Simple Cinnamon Crescent Rolls
As impressive as cinnamon rolls are, I don’t always have the time to make dough from scratch.
The beauty of these crescent rolls is that you get the same tender, buttery crumb with the indulgent cinnamon filling and sweet glaze.
Using cinnamon sugar is far easier in this case, given that you can’t really spread a butter filling onto the small triangle as well.
Bake until golden and dip into the glaze for total coverage and sweetness in every bite.
18. Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Bars Recipe
The key to these neat little bars is the layers.
You’ll need a classic graham cracker crust – though a pecan crust would add some swoon-worthy flavor.
The cheesecake filling is simple, using cream cheese, sugar, and eggs – though brown sugar would add a nice caramel flavor.
Finally, it gets topped with a cinnamon layer that not only tastes incredible but looks great, too.
Let them cool all the way down before cutting and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
19. Apple Cinnamon Crumb Bars
Rather than a shortbread crust, this recipe ingeniously uses brown sugar, butter, and graham cracker dough full of apple pie flavor, with the texture of shortbread.
I like to prep my apples by mixing into the sugar and cinnamon and leaving it to macerate (draw out the moisture into the surrounding sugar).
With this technique, the apples and sugar will create a thick syrup, and you don’t need additional flour or cornstarch to thicken your filling.
Crumble the remaining top over the apple and bake until bubbly and golden.
20. Maple Glazed Brown Sugar Cinnamon Scones
Scones are one of those British treats that I don’t think we give enough love to.
They’re soft and sweet (or sometimes savory ), can be full of fruits and chocolate (or cheese and bacon), and keep well in both the freezer and in an airtight container.
I love the color and caramel flavor you get from using brown sugar here, and the cinnamon gives the whole thing extra warmth.
The trick when making scones is to stop mixing when the dough is still a little shaggy.
Turn it out and finish bringing it together with your hands, gently pressing it into a thick round that you can portion.
21. Apple Brown Betty
Making an apple pie can be such an accomplishment.
But who has the time when it’s 8:00 pm on a Thursday and the craving hits?
Enter Apple Brown Betty!
Once you have your apples sliced, the crumble top can be mixed in just a few minutes.
You can use a mixer to create the top, or I would just rub the butter into the dry between my fingers to save on dishes.
After 45 minutes in the oven, you’ll have a bubbling apple base with a crunchy, spiced top.
22. Cinnamon-Candy Cookies
Most people are happy with a lightly spiced cinnamon dessert.
Some people, on the other hand, want that overwhelming spice you get when eating Red Hots.
Though I’m in the first group, I can definitely see the appeal, and this recipe packs a punch.
These have Red Hots blitzed right into the dough for all the flavor and color you can’t miss.
23. Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread
I almost always have some kind of loaf in the house and the freezer. I never just make one.
They’re great for breakfast, a mid-morning snack with coffee, or a late-night sugar fix.
I think it’s safe to say we’ve banana’d ourselves out during lockdown, and it’s time for something different.
Made using oil and sour cream, this bread has a moist cake-like crumb with a fantastic dark cinnamon swirl throughout.
24. Coffee And Cinnamon Brownies
If you’ve never added coffee into your chocolate cake or brownies before, you’re missing out.
You don’t really taste the coffee due to baking’s magic, but it definitely enhances the chocolate for something indulgent and rich.
For this recipe, you’ll get all that decadence plus another layer of warmth from the cinnamon that will have people begging you for the recipe.
I would also mix through some chili chocolate chunks for an extra spice kick!
