Good Dessert recipes

I have one that i just got from martha stewart. it sounds sooo good. i am gonna try it this weekend.


Banana Whoopie Pies


Makes about 3 dozen



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (from 1 large ripe banana)

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting



Directions



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Combine banana and sour cream in another bowl.

  2. Beat butter and granulated and brown sugars with a mixer on medium-high speed, until pale and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, beating until incorporated. Add banana mixture in 2 additions, alternating with flour mixture.

  3. Transfer batter to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch plain tip. Pipe batter into 1 1/4-inch rounds on baking sheets, spacing rounds 1 1/2 inches apart.

  4. Bake until edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Slide parchment, with cookies, onto wire racks. Let cool. (Unfilled cookies can be stored for up to 1 day.)

  5. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with a mixer on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.

  6. Pipe or spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto the flat sides of half the cookies. Sandwich with remaining cookies. Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve immediately.

This is an easy brownie recipe that tastes like it's more work than it was :)


Get a box of brownie mix and prepare as directed on the box.  In the brownie pan, layer half the batter.  Buy a few Symphony chocolate bars (the big ones) and layer them on top of brownie batter.  Finish with the rest of the brownie batter and cook as directed on the box.  You can use all types of candy bars!  They are so tasty and super easy!
