2-24-2016-EasyDesserts

When you’re on the road you still want to eat like you do at home. If you like baked desserts, you can still make them in the RV if you have an oven or a convection oven. Even desserts like whoopie pies and cherry crisp are easily made, yet look like you spent all day slaving over a hot stove to make them.

Easy Whoopie Pies

  • 2 boxes chocolate cake mix plus the ingredients for one box of cake mix
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar (plus or minus, depending on your taste)
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla flavoring
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin

Instructions:

Mix both cake mixes with the ingredients for one cake mix. The dough will be thick, almost like cookie dough. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease them. Drop 2-inch balls of dough on the cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 to 12 minutes. Check cakes at 7 minutes to test for doneness with a toothpick.

Cool the cakes on cookie racks.

While the cakes are cooling, whip the whipping cream until soft peaks just start to form. Add the vanilla and the unflavored gelatin and whip until stiff peaks form. Fold in the confectioners’ sugar. Spread a cake with some of the filling, and top off with a second cake.

Cherry Crisp

  • 1/3 to ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbs. Cornstarch
  • 4 cups frozen red cherries, unsweetened, pitted, tart
  • 1 cup shortbread cookies, crumbled
  • 2 tbs. Butter, melted
  • ¼ cup pecans or almonds, chopped and toasted
  • Ice cream

Instructions:

Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl. Put the cherries in a sauce pan and sprinkle the cornstarch mixture over them. Stir. Cook and stir over medium heat for until the mixture is thick and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Combine the cookies, butter and nuts in a medium bowl. Divide the cherry mixture into four dessert dishes. Sprinkle the cookie mixture over the cherry mixture. Top with ice cream.
