Is it just me or did the holidays just fly around the corner?! I mean really! I have signed up for so much this season too! I just do not have the time or the energy this season to be baking 1000 cookies or pie. I needed some Fast and Easy No Bake Dessert that I could make for all these events. I wanted to bring something different to each of them so I have made a list of 30 Fast and Easy No Bake Desserts that are amazing! I can now enjoy the holidays more and not worry about burning a pie or baking a ton of baggies filled with festive cookies!
Don’t get me wrong, I do love to bake. I just want a Fast and Easy No Bake Dessert option too! This list of 30 Fast and Easy No Bake Desserts does the trick! There is something for everyone too. If you are a chocolate lover or if you need a Gluten Free, Vegan option! We have it all.
So, I bought a wok. I’ve always wanted a wok, mainly because I love saying “wok”. The problem is I’ve been grossly misusing my wok. I use it to make sauces, to fry (not stir fry mind you) meat and for pretty much anything else. What I hadn’t used it for yet was actual stir frying; I mean, that’s really what it’s for, right?
Around the same time I was thinking about using the wok my sweet tooth was screaming “FEED ME!” I was trying to think of a treat that would leave me satisfied but not feeling guilty. What could I stir fry that would satisfy my sweet tooth? Was it even possible? I thought and thought about it and the idea of stir fried fruit was sounding better and better. Honestly, I was trying to sell myself on it.
To kill 2 birds with 1
stone wok I had to come up with a way to tie it all together. Stir frying fruit isn’t something I’m familiar with so it took a couple tries to get to this recipe. The crepes are so easy to make and can be made using whole wheat flour or rice flour to make them gluten free! The grapeseed oil is what brings this all together; the light flavor helps brighten and liven the flavors of the fruit. Fantastic – that’s the word I would use to describe these stir fried fruit crepes.
Are you ready to hear something sad? I’m talking make you say “Awww, poor thing” out loud sad… Up until a year ago I had never had a homemade cobbler. The closest I had come was the peach cobbler from Hardee’s and that was my favorite thing to eat as a teen. I loved everything about it and would beg to go there whenever we were in the neighborhood – just for that peach cobbler.
Last year John’s grandmother made a homemade peach cobbler for Easter. I was eager to try it because I remembered how much I loved the cobbler from Hardee’s. When I took that first bite I was smitten. She had taken that favorite from my younger years and made it even better; I had no idea that was even possible.
Needless to say I spent the entire aftermath begging for the recipe so I could make it for myself. She was hesitant since she’s pretty tight-lipped when it comes to her methods. I think she believes if we all know how she does it we wont go down there for dinner. Of course we will! No one can touch Grandma Goldie’s cooking – even with her own recipe – it’s all that love she cooks with.
I told her about my new blog and how I would love to share this recipe with y’all. She wasn’t on board at first, but when I explained how much you all would appreciate her recipe she said yes. Did I mention she is the sweetest, most kind person you’ll ever meet? Well, unless you meet her on the road cause she’s got a bad case of road rage.
So, here it is – this is Grandma Goldie’s Shore Famous Peach Cobbler. Can you believe how simple this is to make? It makes me feel like a neglected child now!
Have you ever had something that was so rich yet so delicious you just wanted to keep eating them? That’s pretty much what these billion dollar cookies are, hence the name.
An out of this world fudge cream filling stuffed between 2 delicate shortbread cookies make this irresistible dessert. Either element would make for an incredible indulgence, but together they create a rich, beyond intense confection. Trying to eat just one is hard, but more than that can be too much. You’ve been warned!
I should say that I loathe making shortbread cookies. I hate the fact that it’s a crumbly dough that falls apart at the slightest wrong touch. With that said, the pain and suffering that goes into making them are totally worth it once they’re done baking.
That’s it – now you can enjoy your insanely delicious billion dollar cookies and share them with your friends. Be careful though – they’re very addictive!
When the cupcakes are done baking allow them to cool and score (cut x’s) into the center top of the cupcakes. Cut as far down as possible without going through to the lining.
