what about you?
I don't like to make anything for myself, because I'll eat it all. When I go to family get-togethers, etc I like to make apple pie, brownies, or cookies.
I'm known for baking pies. Banana Cream. Coconut Cream. Lemon Meringue. Etc.
I bake a lot of scones and cookies. And always apple pie for holidays (family mandate). I find I don't do a lot of repeats with desserts because there's always something new I want to try. This drives DH and my dad nuts because they find something they really like and it's forever until I make it again.

I don't bake, but my desert of demand since I moved here is a trifle. The hands down favorite is three bags of berries (one each of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries), layered with chunks of angel food cake and whipped cream, all of it liberally doused with blackberry brandy.
I probably bake brownies more often than anything else. My kid likes rice krispie bars as well, so I make those alot, but those are stovetop. :) They are also fast to make. :D
