Meals Made Easy: A quick dessert can still make you a star By J. Caroline Carroll (NC) - Even when you have no dessert ideas, and no time to spare, it's good to know a family meal can still end with great flare.
If you think your everyday desserts are in need of a little inspiration, here are some ideas for sweet treats that are guaranteed to please. "These desserts are a quick, easy and delicious solution to a busy lifestyle," says Jason Quehl, spokesperson for Dr. Oetker, a leading name in easy-make desserts. Consider clipping and pinning them to your fridge for future reference:
Thaw and bake pie shell according to package directions. Cool.
Cook lemon pie filling according to package directions, but use 2 whole eggs, 1/3-cup (75 mL) cold water and 13/4 cups (425 mL) boiling water. Cool 5 minutes.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Reserve 1-cup (250 mL) pie filling for top. Gradually blend remaining pie filling into cream cheese. Pour into crust; refrigerate 15 minutes.
Spread reserved pie filling over top. Refrigerate 3 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and lemon slices, if desired.
