Hubpages Cooks: My Favorite Hubpages Recipes, part deux, Desserts!
As promised in my first collection here is the next set of fantastic recipes. These were published over the past three years. All of these recipes have become family favorites.
Being desserts I had to give you a bakers dozen (13) of links... Hope you will enjoy these as much as my family and friends do. Thank you to all you hubbers for sharing these 'to die for' recipes.
Another great set of recipes that Maddie Ruud has shared here on Hubpages. You just have to check out the Cherry
Cobbler. It is simply to die for. Especially if you're a die-hard cherry fan like me. It is one of the easiest desserts to make. I always make sure I have the ingredients at home as I often get company from out of town (the kind that only let me know that they're coming, once they're on the road already). For a change try it by substituting peaches for the cherries.

K@ri 's Flan recipe is easier and faster to make than the one I used for years. I make this flan regularly because I have chicken running around my yard who produce a lot of eggs. It works out super duper if baked in individual sized ramekins. It's a very satisfying dessert. I hate to have to turn on the air conditioner in the house in the summer so as not heating up the house extra, I have tried to make the flan in the toaster oven which I dragged outside on the deck. It worked like a charm, perfect as perfect can be.
You'll be happy with this recipe too I'm positive you can find it right here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Flan-Recipe-Ever-Guaranteed
Whitney05 Lemon sherbet is one of the best summer desserts that everyone absolutely loves. This recipe is so refreshing and light. It finishes off any meal to perfection. There is also another great use for this lemon sherbet... as a palette cleanser. Serve one small scoop in between the courses if you're having a multi course dinner party. It helps clean the taste buds, especially when going from a spicy appetizer to a milder main course. I was on a wine tasting tour last fall and the winery served us a tiny spoon full of lemon sherbet in between the wines too.

The reason I added blackbv 's great Crepe recipe is even though it's very much like, actually almost identical, to the crepes that my Granma, my Mom and I have been making forever with the exception that our recipe calls for full milk + 1/4 cup of cream. Crepes used to be my favorite when I was a kid and it just never occurred to me to use skim milk instead. It really makes sense to make the crepes less "calorie plenty". The taste is really just as good with the skim milk. Ha-ha-ha that leaves more room for all the added goodies... The fillings for crepe are as limited as your imagination. Not only do crepes work great for desserts but can also become a main course by adding savory fillings such as 'shrimp and mushrooms' or 'pulled beef, mushroom and cheese' drizzled with a light brown gravy served with a salad. Now that makes me hungry... yum

stephhicks68 's comfort food at its very best in this Amaretto bread pudding recipe. Who wants to eat a plain version when you can have it with Amaretto. For a church function a couple of months ago and I was requested to make bread pudding. I made a regular bread pudding and one with Amaretto... guess what, wonder of wonders the Amaretto one went first... and every one raved about it.
So from now on this is the recipe of choice for me ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Amaretto-Bread-Pudding
I love this easy cream puff recipe, it's so quick and easy by girly_girl09 . Since I found this recipe I have only made my own once as mine is more time consuming. I love it with a cooked custard filling the best. I made this a couple of times for the pot-luck and everyone raved about how good they were. They all thought I spent hours and hours baking. (I'm bad, as I didn't tell anyone how fast these are to make.)
The pistachio pie crust in this following recipe is to die for by Live N Learn . (Coconut Avocado Lime Pie with Pistachio Crust) I have made this pie crust for 5 different types of pies and it is perfect for all. 1) Strawberry cheesecake, 2) cherry cheese cake 3) lemon meringue pie, 4) coconut orange sherbet cake and 5) just last weekend I used the crust for a large blackberry cheese 'birthday' cake for 30 people. My friend who just turned 75 absolutely loved it... (she is the cheese cake queen around my neck of the woods) She has never used a pistachio crust before but she will from now on, she said, as it somehow blend together to perfection.

My son-in-law really loves these banana-pan-cakes by MM Del Rosario most of the times when we get together the meals revolve around what my granddaughters like so I make a point to make these pancakes for him, especially on his birthday and for fathers day.
Try them by using this great recipe ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/banana-pan-cake
I grow my own pumpkin in my garden and I always have way too many. So as not to waste anything that comes from the garden I'm always hunting for new recipes to make with the only squash that I like. This Profound Pumpkin Pudding by Stacie Naczelnik is one of those recipes that I added to my faves the minute I had tried it for the first time. I make it with cranberries and as I'm a nut lover I also add either walnuts or pecans to the top of the pudding.

Well, I guess I'll just leave the title alone and just say that marisuewrites 's Almost better than sex pudding is really a great dessert. I have made it as a pie with the pistachio crust and replace half the pecans in the recipe with pistachios. It was so very yummmmmmmy that the recipe was also added to my clans favorites and it definitely is worth every minute of time spent making it.
----------unfortunately Marisuewrites has removed her recipe hub-----------
The poor fruit cake gets a bum-wrap from most people, I'm the exception because I absolutely love fruitcake. In my family I'm the only one so it's always good to know that if I make some for Christmas I will have it all to myself to eat (buahahaha). I have tried many recipes and this one by rmcrayne is really the easiest and best one to make. Thinking about it made me want a piece right now... guess what, I just happen to have a piece left in the freezer, with other words it freezes really well. I slice it and then put a couple of them into a ziplock baggy and then I put the baggies into a large plastic tub.... this keeps the fruitcake 8 - 10 months with out freezer burn etc.
try it you might like it using this great recipe ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Fruitcake-and-Christmas-Cookie-Recipes
There is not much that I need to say about this next recipe. The home made whipped cream by Melissa Ray Davis is just what you need on top of a plain old apple or fruit pie, on top of a pudding, a cake, sliced up fruit or just regular ice cream. I'm sure you will agree with me when you try the Rum or Bourbon whipped cream or the mint infused one... delicious

There you have it for now folks... hope you get a chance to try some of these recipes that have joined the list of favorites for my gang. I'm sitting here in front of the computer drooling and other than a piece of fruitcake that I just dug up from the freezer it's time to make some of these again just for 'fun'........
