Oven baked apricot cheesecake recipe. Very easy and delicious dessert cooked in the oven. I love creating desserts, talking about them, and writing about them. I also like to see the look of anticipation -and then satisfaction-on the faces at my table, whether I’m serving a quick and easy adaptation from a package or can or a luscious special-occasion masterpiece.
Desserts must be chosen wisely, bearing in mind what is served beforehand. Choose a light dessert to follow a rich main course, if the main course is simple, a richer dessert may follow. Take into consideration the time of year and the fruits in season. There are innumerable delicious desserts that are quick to prepare which are suitable for the family. There are also desserts which require a little more time and therefore you may wish to serve these when guests are expected.
My family feels that a meal is not complete without a dessert-in the summertime a cold refreshing sweet and in the cold of winter months, a heavy steaming pudding.
