Ended - October is National Dessert Month here in the US


October is National Dessert Month!

According to Wikipedia**, “**The word "dessert" originated from the French word desservir "to clear the table" and the negative of the Latin word servire.”

If you take a look at the Wikipedia page linked to above, you'll see listed more different kinds of cakes, candies, cookies, and custards than can be safely eaten in a year, let alone a single month – and that's just the C's!

Going through the list, what are your favorite categories of desserts and some of you favorite kinds and flavors? Do you have a family member who makes them? Do you make these yourself? Or do you have a favorite shop that makes The. Best. [Insert your choice here]. Ever!

And that you don't mind sharing with us.

Me? I have to admit I am a fan of classics though I am very often disappointed by tiramisu, the world’s favorite dessert. I also love affogatos and am extremely fond of chocolate pecan pie. I am tempted to go cross category and choose something that includes items from more than one category. Brownie sundaes with chocolate and salted caramel sauce and deep-fried almonds and whipped cream are never a bad idea.

What about you?
