Brandy Alexander Pie

Rating: 5 stars 13
Try this cognac- and creme de cacao-flavored pie that is great for company. Be sure to make it ahead of time so it has time to chill.

Brandy Almond Cake

Rating: 4 stars 5
This cake is great for wedding cakes or birthdays.

Classic Cherries Jubilee

Rating: 5 stars 51
This is a great, refreshing dessert, especially after a hearty meal. This does have to be prepared immediately before serving, but does not take a lot of time. Your guests will enjoy the blue flames when the brandy is ignited!

Brandied Fruit Topping

Rating: 5 stars 1
Delicious brandied fruit topping to serve over ice cream. Has a long keeping time if refrigerated, for months. Recipe units are very flexible depending on which fruit you like the best!

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 276
This is a dense cheesecake that is very smooth and melts in your mouth. The white chocolate brandy sauce tops it off. I just nap it over the center of the slice of cheesecake on the plate. I garnish it with mint leaves and either raspberries or strawberries.

Anise Biscotti

Rating: 4.5 stars 180
Delicious, with a hint of licorice flavor. You can store these in an airtight container for over a month.

Panna Cotta with Berry Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
A creamy vanilla gelatin-based dessert that is easy, quick, and very tasty. Make the berry sauce an hour before serving.

Dolce Pesca (Sweet Peaches)

Rating: 4 stars 5
Peaches are stuffed with a fig and pine nut mixture, soaked in wine, and topped with brandy before baking. I learned this amazing recipe from an Italian woman while in Italy and I never forgot it. It's easy, healthy, and so good.

St. Andre Walnut Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 2
A yummy walnut cake with an apricot glaze, served with whipped cream. Perfect for small get-togethers.

Tiramisu III

Rating: 4.5 stars 42
Try this substitute for mascarpone in this recipe: 16 ounces of cream cheese combined with 1/2 cup heavy cream and 5 tablespoons sour cream.

Zesty Lemon Loaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 115
This dressed-up pound cake-style lemon loaf has a delicate hint of ginger. The decadence of Grand Marnier makes this lemon loaf special. Great with Earl Grey tea or ice wine.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 1433
I make a basic chocolate chip cookie dough, but use white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and brandy (instead of vanilla). Great for Christmas time!

Biscochitos Traditional Cookies
Rating: Unrated 86
This is New Mexico's traditional cookie. A great thick sugar cookie that is dusted with cinnamon-sugar. The traditional shape is fleur-de-lis, but use your favorite cookie cutters if you like.
Strawberries Romanoff
Rating: Unrated 2
I go to La Madeleine restaurant just for their strawberries Romanoff. Very easy to make and yummy.
Authentic Tiramisu
Rating: 4.5 stars 61

On my first trip to Italy to meet my husband's family back in 1995, I didn't speak a word of Italian. But I did learn how to make great 'dolci' from his sister, Maria. This was her recipe and now when we go back they ask me to make it!
