Summer Time Food Favorites - Desserts favorite category of all categories surrounding food.  As the last category and concluding post for the four part series, Summer Time Food Favorites, I had a difficult time choosing just four recipes from among the hundreds that I have for this category.

The first dessert on top of my list for summer time enjoyment is my Gluten-Free "Pucker-Up" Double Lemon Bars.  If you love lemon, these bars are tart but sweet and are sure to please everyone who try them.

Even though I am reluctant to realize Fall is fast-approaching, I do admit I love the abundance of fresh, juicy apples and meaty pie pumpkins that come with the season. So because the colorful Fall is just around the corner, I have included two recipes which are undeniably the most loved Fall desserts.  (Although, they can be made and enjoyed any time of the year.)

For anyone who loves good old-fashioned apple pie, they most certainly will enjoy the following recipe. These cute little mini apple pies are baked in large canning lids and include the same basic ingredients like that of a large pie, but are baked into individual single serving size.  They could even include a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.

This mini apple pie delight recipe is under my dessert collection at:

Now what other dessert comes to mind when you think ahead to Fall?  A dessert which includes pumpkin puree, am I right?  This next dessert is one that is moist and delicate. The Pecan Pumpkin Puree Coffeecake is one of my best recipes that I make often and is number one for using up my frozen pumpkin puree in the winter.  This coffeecake is so good served with a cup of butter rum flavored coffee on a chilly Fall afternoon.

Give this recipe a try:

Lastly, what dessert category would there be without the most loved brownie.  This cake-like brownie is made with dark chocolate cocoa powder and is topped off with smooth and creamy peppermint frosting.  Who wouldn't love to sit down to such a rich and velvety dessert upon the completion of a meal?   Add a few whimsical edible bee cupcake icing decorations and serve it on a bright and cheery bumble bee dessert plate and you are sure to get a few giggles and some praise.
