1. Super-Quick Egg-Free Parve Vanilla Ice Cream (with Variations) by Tova Lowenthal

For those of you who love homemade ice cream but choose to stay away from it due to the raw eggs, this recipe is just for you. Only three ingredients, takes five minutes to create, and no compromising on the taste. Then, prepare a few mix-ins and toppings and make it an ice cream sundae party!

2. Poached Pears in Wine (Plus a Non-Alcoholic Variation) by Dinah Bucholz

The earliest recipe I could find for this gorgeous dish comes to us from the master chefs to King Richard II in a fascinating cookbook compiled in the fourteenth century. It is prepared in almost exactly the same way as the recipe below. Who knew this dish was so ancient? A non-alcoholic variation for kids follows this recipe.

3. Warm Peanut Butter S’mores Pie by Leah Klein

Ridiculously good and incredibly easy s’mores pie recipe!

4. Brownie Petit Soufflès by Malky and Yossi Levine

5. Chocolate Mousse Cake by Leah Walkin

Believe me when I say this recipe is a winner. The richness of the chocolate is cut by the coffee flavor, really upgrading the ordinary chocolate dessert. This mousse cake truly never disappoints. As an added bonus, it’s super simple to prepare!

6. Crispy Fruit Medley from the Nitra Cookbook

Easy fruit salad with a crispy crunch topping makes an enticing plated starter or light dessert.

7. Ice Cream over Warm Apples with Sweet Crumbs by Sara and Yossi Goldstein

There is nothing more classic than warm apples and ice cream. The crumble works so beautifully here, almost like an inside-out apple crisp. Don’t forget the sweet drizzle of silan to top it all off.

8. Chocolate Pecan Pie Ice Cream by Michal Frischman

If you’re a pecan pie person, this flavor is the best of the bunch, no jokes. If you’re feeling literal, you can serve it in a pie crust, but in a bowl does the trick too!

9. Drunken Berries with Vanilla Ice Cream by Leah Leora

This amazing, refreshing dessert of frozen berries cooked in dry red wine and served with ice cream is perfect for serving adult friends and family at your next summer celebration or get-together.

10. Giant S’mores Stuffed Cookie by Sara and Yossi Goldstein

This decadent dessert looks amazing, and tastes so special, but only takes a few minutes to prepare! I’d definitely suggest serving this warm with vanilla ice cream. If you’re feeling extra, sprinkle with Maldon salt for a perfect salty sweet bite.

11. Decadent Apple Napoleon from the Dining In Cookbook

Perfect way to top off a seudas simcha!

12. Crunchy Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie from the Dining In Cookbook

Your family is sure to enjoy this wonderful, easy treat.

13. Delicious Dessert Style Compote by Leah Klein

This delicious make-ahead dessert style compote is the perfect way to end any meal. It’s easy to prepare and tastes absolutely amazing!

14. Hot Chocolate Chip Pie with Ice Cream and Fudge from the Dining In Cookbook

Looking to spruce up your typical chocolate chip cookies? Try out this Hot Chocolate Chip Pie with Ice Cream and Fudge. The pie is chewy and warm and the drizzle of hot fudge brings an extra chocolatey element, making this dessert out of this world!

15. Strawberry Sorbetto Dessert (2 Ways) by Sina Mizrahi

When I first tasted Tuscanini’s Strawberry Sorbetto I fell in love with the intense berry flavor. It needed nothing; it was just the perfect dessert out of the pint. But I gave a small tune up to make it extra: some chopped pistachios for their nutty flavor and waffle cookies because, well, ice cream and waffles are BFFs. You have two ways to serve them: Sorbetto Sandwiches or mixed into the sorbet. They’re delicious both ways. Enjoy!

16. Peach and Berry Compote by Nechama Norman

This concept is genius! It’s easy to prepare, convenient, and serves nicely for any occasion.

17. Sorbet with Rice Krispy Crunch by Michal Frischman

I love hosting, especially family, and I’ll patchkeh over new appetizers and side dishes with a bunch of components until my back aches. But something about the thought of making dessert just fills me with dread. This one is as easy as it gets!

18. Peanut Chew Ice Cream Pie by Esther Ottensoser

Peanut chews are one of those foods that most people really enjoy eating. Paired with ice cream … what could be bad?! Take a look at these four different ways to serve it (also see Peanut Chew Ice Cream Slices, Peanut Chew Bowls with Ice Cream, and Peanut Chew Bars with Ice Cream in Martini Glasses). Whichever way you choose, it will definitely be your pièce de résistance!

19. Chipper Razzle Ice Cream Pie by Faigy Grossman

Peanut butter, chocolate, and salty chips? You bet! An outstanding dessert, this razzle pie has crunch and flavor that satisfies the “looking for something yummy in the freezer” feeling (if there will be any leftovers!).
