Cookouts and barbecues are fun for the little ones, but sometimes you just want to hang out with the big kids.
Homemade desserts can take a back seat during the summer (who wants to turn on an oven?). Let us take care of the baking – and you can take the credit. Impress your adult friends with a fancy, liqueur-laced dessert. Line up a tray of different, decadent cheesecake shooters and let your guests create their own Dessert Flight.
They’ll eat it up.
