Dessert for a complicated group of people

rcallner | Aug 24, 201104:27 PM

I've been requested to bring dessert this coming Monday (posting on Wednesday) for dinner with my husband and another couple who have been working out this schedule for months. The host is a friend I've known a long while, usually (always) I've cooked, but he's keen to introduce us to his fiance (long lost childhood sweetheart) and to host us, for a change. Wonderful. Here's the thing. She's lactose-intolerant, and allergic to almonds and soy (SOY!). My DH has his food theories and doesn't eat fruit late in the day, so the beautiful blueberries I've been contemplating are off the table, too. Yoiks. On top of all this complication, I really like these people and would like to make something nice. Soy has an insidious way of being inserted into unexpected places, like cheaper chocolate, so I have to be vigilant. Does anyone have a bright and tasty idea? I would be very grateful.....
