Chocolate Chip Shortcakes with Berries and Dark Chocolate Sauce
We originally created this version of berry shortcake with the flavors of late-harvest Zinfandel (a fine accompaniment) in mind. But the sophisticated combo of blackberries, chocolate, and mint suits any special meal.

Long Beach Lime Pies
A California cook shared her mom’s luscious version of Key Lime pie, made with loads of fresh lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, and Mexican crema or sour cream. Good thing the recipe makes 2 pies, because 1 never seems to be enough.

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream Pie
As if you needed more excuses to make this outrageously good dessert, it’s brilliant for a party because you can start it several days ahead. At the last minute, just add a pouf of whipped cream and extra malted milk balls.
To create these big-batch treats, freeze the yogurt-cream cheese mixture in an ice cream maker and spread half in a pan lined with graham crackers. Add fresh blueberry sauce and more frozen yogurt, and swirl; then top with the remaining grahams.
