One thing, I voted for "Other" as there was no listing for sopapillas. I just love them, fried fresh to order! Especially with that honey-butter sauce that Don Pablos uses!
Allen, I debated about putting sopapillas on the list. I see that I should have. Like you I also like sopapillas. Another favorite of mine is churros. See the dessert list is endless.

I agree bucky, that their ingredients and prep are different. But they are just as equally enticing to the taste buds. Yum!!

ah ha! A poll after my own heart! Thanks, Sierra!

I didn't want to vote for everything, so I voted for all except the ice cream. Note: it says "with all the toppings". I'd like it if it said "all the bottomings"...such as a hot brownie bottom!
gee....wonder why I'm craving chocolate now........

I'm a bit of a tiramisu snob. I made so much of it when I worked for the local high-end Italian restaurant that I developed a taste for the good stuff. It's been years since I worked there, and I couldn't make it myself now without a recipe in front of me, but I know the right thing when I see and taste it. It's always the dessert I try at a new restaurant that offers it.

I melt for anything with CHOCOLATE and I also love fruit tarts and pies, especially apple and peach pie and/or cobbler. I'm a fruit lover and if I can manage to drizzle some chocolate on it, even better.

I had it committed to memory 16 years ago when I worked there, but I've had a few too many drinks since. I can't remember *anything* about it except for the coffee liqueur, espresso, ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese. I don't remember measurements or other ingredients.

Heck, I'm lucky I remember last night's cheesecake tart recipe.
