50 Desserts That Every Cook Should Know

AmandaCA | Sep 23, 2010 04:57 PM

With the indulgence of the holiday season just around the corner, I thought it time for me to sift through and update my dessert recipes. I have a few go-to ones, a Pumpkin Cheesecake from epicurious.com and a lemon tart from an old job as well as the chocolate chip cookie recipe from Cook's Illustrated a few years back.

I know some of you have tons of recipes, tried and true, collected over the years. So, from one home chef to another, if you could recommend 50 (at the most) desserts (cakes, pies, cookies, squares, tarts, etc.) that I have in my arsenal, what would they be?

Here's what I have so far:

Lemon Tart
Nick's Supernatural Brownies
Cook's Illustrated Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin Cheesecake
Vanilla Ice Cream from The Perfect Scoop

PLEASE post recipes if you have them!

Thanks to all those in advance who take the time to respond. :D
