Six Simple Mother's Day Desserts

Yum
Mother's Day is Sunday, May10th. Here in the United States the celebration of all mother's, motherhood and any maternal bond relationship began in the early 20th century. Although we celebrate in a variety of ways we were not the first to come up with the celebration which dates back thousands of years throughout the world.

Now mom can be a mother-in-law, an aunt who raised you like a mom or any special woman who has been like a mom to you in your life. Although my own mother is long gone and so is my mother-in-law, I still have a special person in my life (who is in her eighties) that I consider to be a mom-like friend to me. Mary is special. I met Mary and her husband through my parents when I was very little. She and I worked together back in my younger days when I was a typographer - something I did for about 13 years. Mary's life turned and eventually she remarried and re-located to Florida but she still kept her home here in Connecticut. I just heard from her and she's making the drive back so I am excited that I will see her soon. Yes, she's in her eighties and drives back and forth from Florida! Love this woman!

Anyway, I have put together six easy and fabulous tasting desserts you can make for that special "Mom" in your life. These are all affordable desserts too and there's no outlandish where do I find this ingredients in any of the recipes. So if you are planning a celebration to honor a mom or two mom's on Sunday, May 10th then check out these six wonderful desserts that are sure to please.

Easy Apple Pie Beggars Purses

These little pockets filled with apple (I used canned apple pie filling) are the easiest and most simple dessert. And they taste great. It's small bites of apple pie and they make for a lovely presentation on your dessert table. Any mom who loves apple pie will love these.

Chocolate Cake with Black Raspberry Ganache

A box mix cake is elevated with the addition of the easy to make black raspberry ganache. It's chocolate goodness with that hint of black raspberry flavor. What a stunning cake it makes with that delicious ganache running down the sides!

Baker's® Raspberry Ganache Pie

A simple and yet elegant pie that is sure to please any chocolate lover. It tastes phenomenal and I assure you this did not last long in our home. Any mom would be thrilled with this dessert.


Chocolate Berry Bliss Shells


These are just outrageously good bites - the combination of chocolate and berries in a crispy little tart shell that you find in or near the frozen food section of your grocery store. They look so pretty too!


Decorated Shortbread Cookies

The simplest of cookies on the planet are shortbread cookies. They taste so good and you can roll and cut them out in any shape you like. Also fun to decorate with various color icings and colored frosting chocolate. The chocolate bits can be found at JoAnn Fabrics or Wal-Mart and probably any store that sells cake supplies. A nice crunchy cookie that is perfect with a cup of tea or coffee at dessert time.


Chocolate, Chocolate Cream Pie


A delicious chocolate pie crust which is simple to make and filled with a boxed pudding mix. Decorate the top with some whipped cream and shaved chocolate and you have another easy and stunning dessert to present to mom.

I found this Mother's Day prayer on the internet and wanted to share it with you. The prayer just touches on so many mother's. May you all be blessed on Mother's Day and each day throughout the year!

God our Creator, we pray:
for new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility ;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for those who are tired, stressed or depressed;
for those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;
for those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for those whose children have physical, mental or emotional disabilities;
for those who have children they do not want;
for those who raise children on their own;
for those who have lost a child;
for those who care for the children of others;
for those whose children have left home;
and for those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled.
Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children to know and do what is good,
living not for themselves alone, but for God and for others.
Amen.
