Nothing gives you the warm fuzzies like a happy family dinner. The best way to top off a night dining, laughing, and sharing life, is a delicious dessert. There are few things that can transport us back to our childhood than the aroma of something sweet baking in the oven. If life has been too busy for you to bake your favorite cakes or cookies, it’s time to slow down a bit and make it happen. Whether your baking for your spouse and children or if it’s just you and your significant other; homemade sweet treat always feels special. Remember life is short, eat the dessert. Here are a few super easy sweet ideas.
Ice cream with a crispy finish
Deep fried ice cream is something you generally only get when dining in a restaurant. It’s simply a big scoop of ice cream battered or rolled in some kind of flakes or dough and fried. There are some different techniques to accomplish this fun and delicious treat. An easier way to accomplish this somewhat complicated treat is to go with faux fried ice cream. You’ll get the same crunchy texture and flavor without all the drama because you don’t actually fry it. Rolling the ice cream in flakes you’ve pre-toasted gives the same effect.
The sugar cookie
These simple, but light and delicious cookies, are perfect for decorating with icing, sprinkles, and other little extras. With this sugar cookies recipe, they can be even easier to make thanks to their no-spread nature and a dough that helps keep their shape. Use cute cookie cutters to create fun theme cookies. Holidays are the perfect time for iced sugar cookies. Your kids will love helping bake and decorate these cookies.
You may have not heard of this simple and tasty treat, but don’t let that stop you from making it. The main ingredient in this delicious tart is golden syrup (or light treacle). This isn’t something we in the states have heard of necessarily but can be found in gourmet shops and can even be made fairly easily with sugar and lemon juice. The treacle tart is simply a short crust pastry crust filled with fresh breadcrumbs, golden syrup, lemon, and eggs. It takes a bit of time to prepare but you will love this classic British dessert.
Cake mix Cookie Bars
Did you know that you can make cookie bars using a cake mix instead of cookie dough? This genius hack could not be easier. The ingredients include a box of yellow cake mix, oil, eggs, and chocolate chips. You’ll love how easy this recipe is to make but you’ll love the taste of these cookie bars even more.
When you think of mousse, you mind likely goes straight to chocolate. Change your thinking and go with this easy, creamy, decadent, yet light lemon mousse. You can whip this amazing dessert up in no time. With ingredients like cream cheese, confectioners sugar, and lemon, you know it will combine to a flavor that will dance across your taste buds. This recipe is so easy and delicious. Just be prepared to refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
