Potluck Desserts

I don't know about you but during the summer we go to a plethora of BB Q's, Dinner Parties, Church Functions and Family Reunions. I usually end up assigned to bring a dessert. So far this summer I have had five occasions I have brought a dessert. For those of you who love to cook, Here are a few few ideas:
You can't go wrong with this dessert, they are fresh and pretty, and even better "in season"!
A twist on a a berry trifle, I made a trifle a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit!



Any bar cookie will get snatched up at any party, you can make them look even better by putting each piece inside a cupcake liner or on a piece of parchment.

Of course you can always take a plate of homemade cookies, brownies or cupcakes, and even if you don't have time or don't enjoy cooking, you can pick up desserts at your local bakeries or restaurants. Last Saturday I had to bring a dessert and so I went to Kneaders and picked up, eclairs, fruit tarts, key lime tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, and huge sugar cookies, and they were a hit!
