    I wish I could find good quality cheesecake more often. I’d also like more deserts that one person can eat. Some of the really delicious ones are for 6 or 8 people and you can’t freeze it into portions or anything.

    The vegan kind. Seriously.

  3. High-quality pumpkin pie. I am pleased that pumpkins will be back in season soon! 🙂

    Really good key lime pie. Most of what’s sold in stores is way too sweet and doesn’t even taste like limes anymore. I should really just get my mum’s recipe…

    • Aydan says:

      I’ve made it. It’s not too hard. The hardest part is juicing all the limes.

      Also, there are different kinds of limes, and some are more bitter than others, so if you don’t like a sweet pie maybe you could use a particular kind of limes.

    Pecan pie!

    Not necessarily a desert always, but…soft tofu! Like, the really soft, siken, custardy kind you almost have to eat with a spoon. Also cold tofu in general doesn’t get enough appreciation. I really want to find somewhere local that makes it fresh so I can get the really good silken stuff – I’ve had it in restaurants and it’s so good.

    I can get pretty good stuff from certain asian groceries, but it still doesn’t compare to handmade or local stuff – I think it’s just too hard to transport for it to be really mass-produced.

    And general stores still don’t have enough tofu – and when they do it’s usually the firmer kind.

      I remember when I was little we occasionally went to these places that sold a dessert which consisted of really soft tofu in some sort of syrup. It was served hot. So tofu dessert is totally a thing. (The internet tells me it is called Douhua.)
