What are some yummy things I can make for dessert this weekend? I’m looking for something really easy to make, that involves fresh fruit. Preferably nothing that involves rolling out dough or doing anything complicated, because I’ll be doing this at a house we’re renting for a few weeks, and I don’t want to have to buy a bunch of stuff that I’m only going to use once, for one recipe.
Thanks ladies! 🙂

I am so not a desert maker… though I love eating it lol.
But my Future Mother-In-Law makes a KICK ass fruit salad. She adds grenadin and rum rum to it and it just tastes amazing!

Early summer – strawberry rhubarb crisp (this is seriously amazing – PM me if you want the recipe)
Late summer – peach cobbler (yum! reminds me of my grandmother making it when I was a kid…)

@tranquility: haha, everything tastes better with some alcohol in it! 🙂
@Elarissa: Unfortunately, one of the girls we’ll be with is allergic to cream 🙁 (and milk, and cheese!).

@septcabride: I made a crisp last weekend actually, and it turned out great! I used strawberries…I could just remake it with different fruit, but I wanted something a little different. I was looking at a recipe for a blackberry cobbler, but it seems very similar to the recipe for the crisp. Are they different when they’re cooked?

@hilsy85: Why not go with a simple strawberry shortcake and whipcream? That is my favorite and it’s so delicious and light. Tis the season for delicious strawberries. 🙂

I use pound cake as some of my layers. It doesn’t need the cream on top obviously. My brother is allergic to milk too, so my Mom always used non-dairy pudding instead.

@Treejewel19: I’ve actually never made it…is it good? Does it involve dairy (see above, girl allergic to dairy will be there).
@mwitter80: Mm yum!

I also make a super yummy twist on apple crisp. I saute granny smith apples in butter and Amaretto until they are super soft and gooey. Then I do a brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon and butter crumble on top. If you use cute ramikans then you don’t need a heavy crust either and the top crisps in about 15 minutes or so in the oven.

I freaking love pineapples, mangos and bananas on the grill. So fresh and so yummy!

My favorite summer dessert is Key Lime Pie. And I’m so excited because my husband and I are going to Key West in a month and I’ll get to have it where it originated!
@mwitter80: Yum!!! That picture looks heavenly.

@mwitter80: I LOVE trifle..omgosh.. my mouth is actually watering right now, The versions that I’ve tasted had cake on the bottom, then jello, then custard, then fruits and more jello and cream… heavenly!!

I make an orange granita…about 3 oranges (or 2 cups orange juice), 4 tbsp simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, boiled until sugar dissolves), a dash of vanilla extract and lemon juice. When I use the fruit, I pureer them in the blender then strain. I usually only add enough of the syrup to give it a little sweetness, but every now and again I want something really sweet and add more…and spike it with lemon juice.
Pour it into a shallow glass or ceramic pan and freeze for 2 hours, strirring to break up the crystals every 30 minutes. It’s slushy and crunchy with ice crystals when done. So delicious and refreshing.
