Simple Yet Impressive Desserts?

luckyfatima | Sep 20, 2007 10:27 AM

Okay I pride myself on being a fairly good cook, but I have a shameful confession: I suck at desserts. Somehow most sweets just involve precision and chemistry to prepare and I am more of a throw stuff together without measuring type cook. Anyway, it is the Muslim Holy month of Ramadan right now that means dinner parties for breaking the fast for which I must cook desserts! Help me! Any suggestions for sweet dishes that seem impressive but even a monkey could cook them? I can make Tiramisu, but that is what I always make, so I need to try something else, finally, if I can muster up the nerve.

Considering my total lack of skills and confidence, please explain conscisely. Also, I don't use pork products or alcohol in my cooking. Many thanks for any suggestions.
