Grilled Angel Food Cake with Grilled Peaches and Cream and Cherry Coulis

Making Jeff's showstopping dessert is simple when you start with prepared angel food cakes. He just warms them on the grill, then dresses them up with vanilla-scented whipped cream, sweetened cherry sauce and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios for welcome crunch.

Pumpkin Roll Cake

The secret to pulling off Katie's cinnamon-scented cake lies in rolling it up. She recommends moving the cake from the pan to a sugar-dusted towel right after you remove it from the oven and using the towel to help you roll. Later you can unroll the cake, fill it with frosting and re-roll it for an impressive presentation.

Lemon Blueberry Hand Pies

Drizzled with a lemony glaze, Jeff's eat-with-your-hands treat comes together simply with the help of premade pie crust, which he fills with a mixture of fresh blueberries and fresh lemon juice.

Geoffrey's Lemon Tart

Follow Geoffrey's lead and start with a ready-to-go tart shell, and fill it with his bright, refreshing lemon custard. For added richness, combine tangy creme fraiche and whipped cream, and serve the mixture alongside.

Peach Cobbler

Unlike pies, which require you to carefully roll out the dough for flaky crusts, cobblers come together with little more than a sweet, fruity filling and a simple buttery crumble on top.

Choco Cherry-Stout Ice Cream Float

Part cocktail and part dessert, Jeff's five-minute float is the ultimate grown-up indulgence. He opts for Guinness beer to spike the recipe, since stout's natural chocolate flavor will complement the chocolate syrup. Bonus: Jeff tops the dessert with whiskey-soaked cherries for over-the-top indulgence.
