So I've done all my usual dessert recipes lately and this time I want a different one, what are your most popular and tastiest desserts across the pond in the USA? Here in our house in Ireland, its Rhubarb Crumble with either Custard or Whipped Cream. Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake and Coffee and Walnut cake with my very own favourite coffee mascarpone icing, oh god im getting fat just thinking of these :)

In my case, it is CHOCOLATE!!  I am a chocoholic....tried and true!  I will at least try anything! that is made with or is covered in chocolate....wait a minute.....no insects, regardless of what some people say!!  Come back to this spot in an hour or two, and I'm sure lots of bakers will respond with their favorite, along with a recipe.  Good luck!

Stacey - We have a saying "As American as apple pie", or words to that effect, depending on who is saying it.  As for me, I prefer a good brownie with nuts in it and a fudge frosting, second would be the recipe from my mother-in-law for oatmeal raisin cookies, and next would be a triple chocolate bundt cake with fudge frosting.  As you can probably tell, I too am a lover of chocolate.  It will be interesting to read what other favorites will be posted.  Thank you for starting this dialog.

If anyone had asked my father, it would be apple pie.  Personally I love anything with rhubarb, but I have to go with chocolaate also.

Stacey, your Rhubarb Crumble sounds very good.  Although I am an admitted Chocoholic I do like crumbles, crisps and desserts like that.  Put a streussel topping on something and it is all the better.

As to the most popular dessert in the USA, I think that depends on the time of year and often where a person is from.
But put me in the Chocolate group. Anything with chocolate would be a favorite.

 Stacey, don't listen to Nellie about reading "the bucket list" as you will make your stomach turn! There's yucky food in there! It's not even food! EEEWWW!!!  OK, now that's out of the way and I'll try to forget again what's there. I'm the real cookie monster! Give me a cookie and I'm in heaven. Close second is fruit desserts of any kind. I get cookies for my birthday instead of the usual cake that people have.

I would imagine Apple Pie and Ice Cream would be very popular here in the USA.

Chocoholic here too lol.  But I do love most things with cherries in them too.  A cheesecake with cherry topping or just a cherry pie and I'm a happy camper.

Oh ladies, my mouth is watering, Id love to try a good deep fill apple pie recipe if anyone has one.  Also Cheri H your description of them nut brownies sound gorgeous, I love anything with nuts in it.

My Great Aunt lived in Kentucky, and my family would visit her at Christmas time , was always jealous when they came home and said they had Pecan Pie, I need to try this! I have never seen it on a dessert  menu in Ireland .  

You know I will have to sneak over and look at the bucket list, even though Ive been warned , I just have to : )

Merle's Pecan Pie

3 eggs, whipped
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. corn syrup
pinch salt
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 c. pecan pieces
1 9 inch pastry shell

Put the pecan pieces in bottom of pie shell. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and pour over pecans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50-60 mins.
i used brown sugar and white syrup, but that can be reversed.
also some prefer whole pecans, but one of our cooking experts on food network says to use the pieces in the shell and arrange a pattern of halves on top of the liquid  and that is good too.
personally i have a problem slicing and chewing the halves.

stacey
this recipe was given to me by my sister     an excellent pie baker  herself 
she said the pie was as good as our mom's recipe  and it was what she's using now
so i have been also  i posted it before and the persons who've tried it lliked it also

I think the best part of a Pecan pie is the PECANS so I always add more than what is called for.

The same basic custard base can be used to make other nut pies.  I have seen recipes for walnut so I would guess other nuts would work as well.  I am not a super fan of walnuts, although I do like them in the Outrageous Brownies that I posted a recipe for, and Stacey the recipe for those is in my recipe box click on my name and go to my recipe box and look for Outrageous Brownies, but I bet Macadamia nuts would be great in the pecan pie recipe.

stacey
i forgot that you haven't had pecan pie

i must warn you  to use pie shields if you have them   or use tin foil around the edges
 also nut pies  must be completely cool before cutting       to set the custard    otherwise it will run out and the pie will not be the same

and nikki, i always add extras too              just like chocolate chips
hmmmm?     might throw a few of them on top of pie
