Thanks so much for playing progressive potluck with us this month! We started with appetizers, moved on to main dishes and sides and now here we are, celebrating with dessert. Because like my husband says, not everyone wants to just put their feet up with a glass of wine after dinner and sometimes a little (or a lot of!) something sweet is just the ticket!

Sometimes you just need something cheap, sweet, easy, and pretty like me.
Yes I went there. I always do for the laugh!
- One clearish Margarita Glass
- One stick of Cinnamon *I like to get mine from the Hispanic section as it’s cheaper—see there is a theme!
- Powdered Cinnamon
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Colorful Berries, Cherries, or Peaches *Its a great way to use that just a smidgen overripe fruit.
I was told by my Granny Bennett to always let my fruit “set out” because it released the sweetness as it came to room temperature so I leave mine out for about 15 minutes.
Slice your peaches or Strawberries in thin slices.
Put in a thin layer of ice cream, then a layer of your thin sliced fruit. Sprinkle a little Cinnamon powder.
Then add a taller mound of ice cream ( about three thin scoops) in the very center and surround it with fruit up to the edge of the glass and around the mound of ice cream in the center.
Sprinkle it with more Cinnamon, I like a lot because I think it makes it look fancy.
Then put a red Berry or Cherry on top and add the Cinnamon Stick off to the side like a straw.
If you’re in the mood to bake, try this mini pineapple upside down cake recipe from me (Mari Farthing). They didn’t turn out pretty but they were tasty!
And Jordan Skaggs has a giveaway on her recipe post for pear pastries with honey whipped cream. They look almost too good to eat!
Marie Wreath whipped up a batch of awesome sounding chocolate chip cookies that can be made with or without musical accompaniment. I prefer a bit of music in the kitchen myself.
