What Are Some Good Dessert Recipes for Just One or Two People?

Good Questions

Q: I cook for two in a small kitchen, and I still don't have a good grasp on dessert recipes. Sometimes, after dinner, we want a sweet treat but don't want to bake a whole batch of cookies or have a cake around all week. Any suggestions for baking for one or two?

Editor: Kate, fresh fruit and a dribble of whipped cream is always nice, as is a scoop of ice cream (lasts well in the freezer!). But if you do want baking recipes, why not an icebox cookie? Leave a log of cookie dough in the freezer and slice a few off as needed. See some recipes here:
