Ah, the sweet ending to a meal! To me, the best part of any meal is dessert. And I enjoy a wide variety of them! If it is sweet, I like it. So this article pulls together a variety of “sweets” recipes for your dessert pleasure. Baked Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Pie – yum, like two desserts in one! It is made with sweetened condensed milk and you know anything made with that is good! Don’t like pie or cheesecake? Then what about a luscious Lemon Supreme Cake? This cake was a favorite of one of my school friend’s mother many moons ago but is just as tasty today as 50 years ago. Or perhaps your taste goes more for the frozen treats. Then give this Strawberry Sorbet a try. Whatever you choose, it is sure to bring a sweet ending to your meal!

- 1 pkg (8-oz) softened cream cheese
- 1 can (14-oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 egg
