There was this cool Far Side cartoon...
Two Arabs were sitting near a tent in the desert. One of them said: "Quick, Adbul! Desert: One "S" or two?"

Anyway, what's your favorite dessert? And what's your favorite desert? Why?

I'm going to go with Cheesecake/Gobi.

Cheese and biscuits. If it has to be sweet I second Tiramisu, or maybe a cold slice of apple pie. :)

As for the desert, I have no preference. I'll let my host decide. ;)

We regularly have Brownie Fests over at my sister's house, where we make these big pans of these brownies with Hershey's chocolate chips in them. We don't let them cool all the way, so they are still hot. Cover them with vanilla ice cream and some hot fudge, and serve with a glass of 2% milk, and you have my favorite dessert, hands down.

Favorite desert? I'm going to go with the one in the middle of Antarctica.

For me, it would have to be Tiramisu and Antarctica – it might be cold and stuff, but because of the low level of precipitation the centre of the continent is technically the largest desert in the world. Fancy!

By the way, did you know that 2006 is the International Year of Deserts and Desertification? You learn something new every day...

off topic, but:

my mom used to make chocolate chip cookies, and after the cookies finished cooking but were still warm and soft, she'd take a little miniature Reese cup out of it's wrapper, put it in the center of the cookie, and then wrap the cookie up around it and let it cool...

those were the best d@mn cookies ever made :D

Favourite dessert: Riskrem.



Favourite desert: Sahara.

Just got a feel for it, just outside Cairo and Luxor, and the busrides from Hurghada to Cairo and Luxor, but it was mighty enough... :)

Profiteroles. Never been to a desert as yet!

Both are pronounced differently. At least around here. De-sert (food) and des-sert (water starved lovely place).

I'd have to go with the best dessert ever created - my grandmother's warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream. Soooo good...

My favorite desert? The Sonoran, just to be different.

I can't go past the Stryzlecki.







No really, I can't go past the Stryzlecki. It's far too big to walk across on foot, and I just sold my camel.


As for desserts, I like fruit tarts because they have a naughty name and they taste syrupy.
