What is your favorite dessert?

and it's pretty damn good. But it's not top of my list.
My wife and I just had a cheese flan at a hipster-Mexican restaurant in Hollywood that sort of blew our minds. Place is new, I don't even remember the name of it.
Here's one I really like, it's very unusual: The Caramel Coppetta at Pizzeria Mozza. A pizzelle with a faint anise flavor, with caramel ice cream, spanish peanuts and mashmallow sauce. The variation in flavors and textures makes every bite a little different, but somehow it works together.

What kind of cheesecake?
but pictures of sweets do nothing for me.
Now, 75 pictures in a row of different types of bacon and WOOF!

Pretty much any cheesecake except some of the Italian style cheesecakes that get a more "bread" like texture. Gotta have that rich, creamy texture. Growing up my mom would get me the chocolate variety cheesecake as a birthday cake.
Can't go wrong with Junior's.
I've only had the Crack Pie from Milk Bar, which was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Just about everything there is incredible.
has a dessert called Torrijas, I think. They describe it as a Spanish style French Toast, which doesn't quite convey what it is. It's like a creamy bread pudding with dash of citrus, served with brioche ice cream. Again, it's complex, which makes it surprising but also hard to describe.
Some desserts, the first bite sort of gives you all the flavors and textures you're going to get. On this one, every bite's a little different. For comfort food, a great cheesecake can't be beat. But sometimes at the end of a great meal you want something more stimulating.
Pie, pie, me oh my
Nothing tastes sweet, wet, salty and dry
All at once -- oh, well it's pie!
Apple! Pumpkin! Mince and wet-bottom
I'll be at your house every night if you got 'em
Pie! My oh my. I love pie!
I read this as desert at first haha, would be an odd list.
Cheesecake is a good answer. Can't go wrong with ice cream, something Vanilla based, vanilla bean...ice cream cake (gotta have the crunchies). How about Tartufo?
head my list. I wouldn't mind a root beer float on the side.
Guinness Ice Cream, Jameson Caramel, Bailey's Marshmallow
eater not a fan of sweets at all really. None of those look appetizing to me.
After we go out to dinner and I usually get a steak when people ever get dessert I'd sometimes like a smaller steak for dessert. Most I'll do is an Irish Coffee or a single malt scotch.
the lone exception is the pastry shops in the North End of Boston. I like Mike's, but Modern is equally popular and Bova's and some smaller ones really just as good.
they have this chocolate covered coffee torrone that is just incredible. I won't eat the cannoli's but those torrone's are one of the few sweets I'll eat.
I just hate waiting in line, and the North End is a pain in the ass, so it's like once every few years or if we have friends or family come visit us and they want to go to Boston.
but I'm not a fan of cooked bananas. No Molten Lava cake? That is one of my faves.
I was going to say flourless chocolate cake, but that one will do.
