Dessert

Dessert is an excellent way to finish a great meal or to just plain celebrate! My top reader favorites are these easy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars and my sweet & salty Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies.

Other easy classics include my actually crispy Apple Crisp, my Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies and my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. Also, my mom’s signature Apple Bread, which has become famous in my family and on the blog.

And if you’re suddenly craving chocolate cake, two servings of my Gooey Chocolate Mug Cake are ready in less than 15 minutes!

But don’t take my word for it. Bake up some of these delicious desserts and see for yourself!
