Recently I received an email from one of my readers asking for more recipes from Aunt Lou’s Archives.

Desserts & Sweets Recipes
Desserts, one of my favorite food groups. I don't know anyone who doesn't like dessert. Where do those people even live? Well for those of you who do love dessert here's a nice smattering for you to drool on.
This page contains a collection of some of my favorite dessert recipes. They run the gamut from the easiest dessert recipes to a bit more involved. I have some awesome French dessert recipes as well as some American favorites like lemon tart. I have also included some family recipes like Aunt Lou's $200 cake recipe.
Some of the desserts like my mini lemon tarts take a short cut. Yes, I cheat by buying the mini tart shells. Oh, confession is indeed good for the soul.
I also have some tropical treats like creamy mango lime bars. These are sweet and tangy at the same time, and they are great for a party, or a summer picnic. Can you tell that I'm a fan of fruit desserts? I am going to be taking a batch to my next family dinner party.
Go ahead and make one of these. Or make them all, why not?
