I need FAST dessert recipes, it's a long story. They can't require refridgeration for storage, marshmallows, or baking cocoa. Thank you anyone who responds!    Smiley

Ummmm... fast to make (as opposed to fast to eat!)?

- pound cake, store bought, or http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/11996, drizzled with liquer soaked raspebrries
- or parfaits with pound cake, lemon curd and fresh fruit
- medjool dates stuffed with toasted almonds
- cookies! ginger snaps, coconut macaroons, tea flavored madelines
- or better yet, make cookie dough as the dessert.  Use powdered pasturized egg whites or just leave out the eggs.
- caramel corn!
- store bought pizza dough covered with brown sugar, sliced apples and walnuts, then baked like pizza
- fruit salad with mint syrup http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/109657

not so fast:
- nut brittle
- doughnut muffins: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/000027.html
- fruit cobbler

can you tell I had fun thinking about desserts at this hour?  Drool.
Kicking around epicurious.com using their browse feature is a good place to look too.

have fun

Cut up some fruit and make a "dressing" out of plain yogurt, lemon juice, and fresh mint leaves.

This may be for sale on my etsy:

allrecipes.com has depression cakes: no eggs, no milk...
I even used applesauce onstead of shortening & it came out better (we seem to have a lot of those snack-pack-type applesauces).
I used this one, without the raisins, no allspice, with ginger instead & applesauce substituted for shortening (see reviews). People seem to really like it, and I like it!

All the goo we use, reviewed!

The simplest cookies that might eilicit marriage proposals are these hershey kiss-topped peanut butter cookies, a recipe from the Best of Southern Living 2004 cookbook: Cool

1 c. of your favorite peanut butter (chunky or smooth, natural or sweetened)
1 c. sugar
1 egg
36 Hershey Kisses/Hugs/Darks/Caramel Kisses

Add first 3 ingredients to mixing bowl & stir until moistened. 
Form into 36 balls (it is possible to make 36 cookies--even for me, the queen of making only 1/3 of what the recipe is supposed to yeild, bc I am a huge fan of huge cookies--or ANY cookies, for that matter!  Just use a teaspoon and make the balls pretty small); place them 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. 
Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
Immediately after they come out of the oven, press a Kiss inot the top of each one, letting the dough squish out a little underneath it.
Place the cookies on a cooling rack covered w/foil or wax paper as soon as you're done Kissing them.  I don't have a cooling rack, so I just use the unused rack from my oven over the sink and covered w/foil or wax paper--it works just as good an actual cooling rack.

SO GOOD.  They turn out soft and moist and YUMMY & I brought them to work one time & I got my first marriage proposal bc of them (I said no).  HA.

I hope this helps & you still need a fast recipe!

I made a post called 'fast sorta healthy desert" (or something like that) fairly recently.  You can check that.

OOO i have one to add, althought i've never tried it. 

you need two packs of JELL-O (or generic) Vanilla Pudding Mix, one pudding package worth of milk and one pudding package worth of cream, and a box of unsalted crackers. 

mix the pudding mix with the milk and cream, then put down a layer of crackers in a caserole dish.  add a layer of pudding, and then a layer of cracker, etc.  refridgerate, and the next day you have yourself a no-bake cake.  i guess the cream hardens the pudding mix, so it comes out cakey.  if you add powdered coffee it turns out a bit like tiramisu.

Easy, fast & yummy - smear some preserves (i used apricot) on a (semi) thawed sheet of puff pastry , add some sliced apples or pears, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. bake at a medium temp until pastry is toasty and fruit is soft. Serve with ice cream. If you're feeling especially creative, melt some butter with the same preserves & some cinnamon in a small saucepan (you could probably nuke it) for a yummy sauce over the ice cream. Can be improvised with any combo of fruit/perserves, nuts, etc.
