MY DESSERT ISLAND LIST

Inspired by @andersun
  1. Vanilla Layer Cake
    Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and filling.* Vanilla is one of the most complex flavors we have—nothing plain about it. (Cake in photo needs more frosting and filling, and some pretty piped-on borders in pastel colors—no sprinkles, please.) *A fruit filling is also delicious—and pretty. Pineapple, strawberry, or passion fruit are nice. Simply delicious!
  2. A One Pound Box of See's Chocolates
    Will include: Mayfair, vanilla cream, chocolate cream, butterscotch square, California brittle, polar bear paw, Bordeaux, mocha, strawberry cream, raspberry cream, and blueberry truffle.
  3. Banana Fudge Ice Cream
    Fresh banana with chocolate fudge swirl. Lappert's makes an excellent banana fudge, or you can make it yourself! Add some chopped maraschino cherries for fun.
  4. Orange Sorbet
    Made with fresh squeezed backyard oranges (if possible).
  5. Grape Sorbet
    Using Welch's Concord grape juice—the color is deep and rich.
  6. Blondies
    Butterscotch brownies—chewy and sweet.
  7. Baked Custard
    With lots of nutmeg sprinkled on top.
  8. 3 Musketeers—Fun Size
    A treat my great-grandmother and I shared while taking walks when I was quite young. I love them; we have history.
  9. Fresh Jackfruit
    It's impossible to describe the flavor ... other than heavenly. It tastes like two things combined, but I can't come up with them. Pear and banana, perhaps? The fruits are huge! I go to a Vietnamese produce market where they have the little pods packaged in small amounts.
  10. Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
    Crispy, chewy cookies with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. (I have the perfect recipe!)
