Orange Truffle Tart
Fall's famous fruits and flavors dominate autumn menus, and chocolate lovers will find satisfaction in this decadent treat. Orange marmalade and zest find a match with semisweet and bittersweet chocolate ganache in a chocolate cookie crust.
Apples simmered in cider and sugar nestle on a layer of sweet cream cheese in a golden crisp puff pastry shell. Refrigerated pastry dough and the filling can be prepared a couple days ahead of actual baking time.
Ice Cream Pumpkin Pie
Canned pumpkin and vanilla ice cream blend into a cool combination destined for a graham cracker crust. The recipe is so simple, you can invite your kids to help. This is a pumpkin dessert everyone will love.
Frozen Apple-Oatmeal Sandwiches
Kids can be in charge of making this dessert. Two oatmeal cookies sandwich a thick layer of sweet cream cheese and then go for a dunk in smooth melted chocolate. They set in the freezer while dinner is on the table and disappear before bedtime!
