Dessert People started at the end of December 2020 with a simple idea: what if we baked our way through Claire Saffitz's Dessert Person and shared the results with the people around us?
This is that idea. Follow along as we attempt to convert as many people as possible into Dessert People
Troy has a laundry list of culinary achievements including "watched a lot of BA Test Kitchen videos" and "pretentiously thinks Kraft Dinner is gross". Under his studious tutelage, the Dessert People project will judiciously replace meals with treats.
Rhianna's family likes to make jokes that she "has never cooked in her life" and she strives every day to prove them wrong. She believes it's pretty clearly outlined in common law that a "dessert" must be made of chocolate so she's treating this whole book with a wide berth of skepticism.
They're not too sweet, have an interesting nutty flavour and look pretty
They're basically grandma-cookies
Sorry Claire, it's not BA's Best.
I didn't go bananas for this bread. Choc-olate it up to a lack thereof.
I want more cake, less fudge.
It contains chocolate
I promise I still have a sweet tooth. But these knocked it out of the park.
Put some cheese in this recipe, give the people what they want
It's like cinnamon twists but there's no cinnamon. What a life.
This is my favourite recipe so far.
Both parts were good, but neither part felt like they loved each other. Will likely file for divorce.
They did not pack as big of a punch as I expected, but I would still eat them all
They taste a bit too strongly of coconut for me and feel a bit too oily

I didn't mind eating this, but I wouldn't choose to make it again
If I wanted Nutri-Grain (I don't), then I'd buy some
It was a bit too tart, and structurally didn't hold up well
The jam made it worse, but it didn't have a lot to start with
It was really great immediately out of the oven, and trash the next day
It was meh
I tried very hard to like cake. I couldn't pull it off. Make pie instead
It was too rich and too dry.
We're only two people, and this book makes a lot of dessert. And isn't the best part of dessert sharing it? So, I've taken to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share them with people in Edmonton, with only two simple rules:
