Need a signature dessert! Can I steal yours?

Toronto Fastfoodie | Jan 21, 2010 03:34 AM

In my husband's family, at every potluck gathering, the women bring their signature dessert. And now that we have been married for more than 10 years, my husband thinks it is time I came up with my own. I am already known as the best chopped liver, chicken soup. and noodle kugel maker in the family but desserts? Not so much. It's not that I can't bake-I once came in second in a national magazine's cooking contest for "Giant Pesto Pizza Muffins"-its just that I don't have a signature dish....yet.

This is where I need help. I need a recipe that is easy to make but yet impressive to taste and to look, versatile for a variety of occasions, and is not:

-a coffee cake
-an apple cake
-chocolate peanut chews

(these are the recipes that are already someone else's signature)
