Are you ready for Labor Day? We actually have no plans this year so it’ll be nice to sit back and relax by the pool and maybe grill up some tasty treats. I tested out another easy “fancy looking” dessert from one of my favorite cookbooks of the moment. These are super easy to prep ahead of time and then pop in the oven when you are ready. On the plus side it doesn’t take very many ingredients so it’ll be super cost effective if you make in large batches. I opted to skip the caramel ice cream topping, but I’m sure it’s tasty with it as well.
