Sometimes, I have unexpected company and need to fix a good dessert fast to compliment dinner. I find I have almost run out of quick but good recipes and know the great cooks here will shed some light on many for me.

My favorite, and all time stand by is Peach Cobbler, it is quick and very easy to assemble and cook, plus I find I usually have all the ingridents on hand.


I've got my pen and paper ready, and am ready to try something new...

THanks everyone.

A thread on this forum called Favorite Recipes
had a post from Nicole that had recipes from Pioneer
Woman (I think she has a web site)

I am making sure I don't take any credit for this recipe

I made the Apple Dumplings and .... OH MY!!!!!

They are easy and amazing and perfect to serve for company.
We add a bit of vanilla ice creme . Recently my son asked
for this instead of a birthday cake. He is 19 and this was the first ever recipe he wanted to take to college with him .

Old-fashioned, but Cherries Jubilee is good in a real pinch. No prep really. Just gotta have a can of pitted Bing Cherries on hand, and Vanilla ice-cream in the fridge. And some brandy.

If no cherries, but you've got bananas - fried and flambéed, over vanilla ice-cream is nice. Again, no advance prep needed.

For speed: Would have said chopped up fruit with whipped topping, but Vichel's answer is better.

Chocoalte cream pie. All it needs is a store bought chocolate crumb crust, three Jello pudding mixes, and a large container of heavy whipping cream. Easy to keep the ingredients on hand.
If I have time, I use a decorating bag to pipe on the topping so it looks fancy. Top with chocolate shavings. My husband asks for this pie for his birthday instead of cake. It's so good!

I like Vichel's answer also. I haven't made them in years but Cherries Jubilee is such a neat dessert. It's fast, easy, and it looks so cool when you light those cherries on fire.


I usually always have brownie mix or cake mix on hand. Now that I'm watching calories I would most likely make a pudding parfait with fruit, something crunchy and cool whip.

I read this great recipe where you make a jello parfait by mixing different jello flavors with ginger ale and soda at the end as it cools (instead of water). You layer 'em...b/c the sodas were added at the end, you still have some carbonation for a fizzy treat.
