Now, I’m no slouch in the cooking department. SO loves my cooking, especially my cakes and monkey bread. But I gotta admit, his Mama, Grandma and the other Wives are pretty awesome cooks themselves. Grandma’s bread pudding blows mine out of the water.
I wanna impress them this year. What are most impressive/go to dessert recipes?

I make a MEAN sweet potato casserole with brown sugar, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. It’s the only thing I ever bring on Thanksgiving and Christmas (yeah I fail at cooking normal things) and every year I have to increase the amount I make because it gets devoured. I brought it to a work holiday potluck a few years and now it’s a staple there as well. Can’t go wrong!

It’s super easy and ridiculously impressive looking. Also it is moist and delicious and everything the perfect chocolate cake should be.

I usually make a cheesecake. Everyone seems to think they are hard to make for some reason, but I have a super easy and delicious recipe.

My grandmother had this cheesecake recipe that was INSANE. And the diff was the amount of sour cream she used. I switch it up and instead of graham crackers, I use taffy cookies as the crust. It’s amazing. The only other thing I do in a pie shell is a corn syrup-free walnut pie that uses a bunch of eggs and brown sugar instead. It changes the flavor completely, almost like super rich flan.

Pavlova, tiramisu and cheesecake are always a hit and much easier to make than people think.

@Mrs.babycat: Agreed. Paula Deen has a great one, and you can halve the butter and sugar called for (and I use Splenda) and it will still come out fantastic.
Make sure not to stir!
