The Best Sweets We Ate in July

The Serious Eats Team 2 comments

July was hot, but not too hot to indulge in dessert. We ate mochi cakes in San Francisco, peanut butter pie in New York, and experimented with pelamushi, a traditional Georgian dessert made from grape juice cooked with flour, corn flour, and sugar. See these and more in the slideshow above! More

The Best Sweets We Ate in June

No surprise, we ate a lot of ice cream this month. Some of it was homemade by an SE staffer, some of it incorporated sweet seasonal strawberries, and some was served in a teeny tiny cone. We also got our babka roll on, tried some pignoli cookies, and dug into the biggest kouign amann we've ever seen. More

It's not often that supermarket sweets sneak into our "best sweets" roundup, but this month, one genre-defying product did just that. We also hit up a scoop shop in Ireland, Rich Table in San Francisco, and more. More

This month we ate milk pudding in Hong Kong, cardamom brioche in San Francisco, yogurt with fermented sticky rice in Vietnam, and kougin amann in New York City. Even vegan-for-the-month Erin got on the dessert train thanks to a delivery of sweets from vegan bakery Babycakes. More

Banana roti in Bangkok. Sri Lankan sweets in Staten Island. Vegan cookies in San Francisco. These are just some of the items that made January feel like a nice break from the ordinary. (Obviously "cut down sugar" was not one of our New Year's resolutions.) More

December was, predictably, an awesome month for eating sweets. We indulged in holiday flavors like fruitcake ice cream, in sweets with seasonal fruit like persimmons, and, of course, gorged ourself at our epic Cookie Swap. More

Thanks in part to SE Overlord Ed and his daily office pie drop-offs, we did eat a lot of pie this month. But we also ate a ton of other great stuff, from NYC to Istanbul and beyond. Check out all our favorites! More

The Best Sweets We Ate In October

If you think we maxed out our sweet-tooths this month on fun-sized Halloween candy, think again. We hit all the free candy bowls and still indulged in treats like Paris-Brest, cream puffs, and banana-sweet potato pie. More

Best Sweets We Ate in September

September is a great month for dessert. Plums and other summer fruit are still on the menu, and on warm days, a cone of ice cream doesn't seem out of place. But apples are here, and the first of many... More

In August, our sweets consumption tends to revolve around things of the frozen variety. And whether it was snoballs in New Orleans, double cones in San Francisco, or sherbet at home (a special thanks to Max!), we definitely used dessert as an excuse to beat the heat. More
