@ECBG  Homemade apple pie, pumpkin pie and sour cherry pie. With an honorable mention to the eggless, milkless, butterless chocolate cake our dear Mennonite sisters made for us at our high school back in the 60's.

 

And, a second honorable mention to the Oakmonter from Oakmont Bakery.


@PA Mom-mom Oakmont Bakery- there isn't an item there that isn't delicious!

Re: What Are Your Three Favorite Desserts?

My mother made pies all the time, would just go in the kitchen and whip one up like it was nothing to it. I didn't inherit her trait. 

 

First comes to mind lemon merinque pie but I also loved her custard pie;

fresh coconut cake;

Junior's plain cheesecake

 

I've got an insatiable sweet tooth and try to rein it in, knowing sugar is not a friend. Thankfully, baking is not my forte.

@PA Mom-mom Amish and Mennonite folks can really bake! My grands liked spending time in Lancaster and always brought back the most delicious baked goods!


@Squirrels Are Trash    I agree.  I have visited Amish country in Ohio many times.  They have the best peach pies .  Actually all their baked goods are great.

Yes, yes & yes.

 

No, I'm not as bad as all that.

 

Depends on where I am: which restaurant or, if it's my DD's, I'll pass....

 

If home, I do like a few pieces of Josh Early chocolates

or

a Pepperidge Farm cookie

or

a quarter of the small Wegman's cherry pie

Re: What Are Your Three Favorite Desserts?

Cheesecake either plain, with blueberries or strawberries or any kind of caramel/dolce de leche sauce on top

 

Turtle Brownies.  This is a recipe given to me by one of my best HS friends.  It has a  caramel sauce mixture in the middle.  The recipe also calls for chopped pecans and chocolate chips on top of the caramel sauce but I omit those.
