It’s not too late to bring your A-game this weekend. Here are two simple desserts and a tasty side from The Minimalist Baker. 

Weekend Recipe No. 1

Simple Blackberry Cobbler



There’s a special place in my heart for cobbler, one of the absolute easiest recipes to make from scratch no matter how cooking-impaired you are. You just can’t go wrong with hunks of soft dough baked in sweetened berries. Add a little lemon and a bit of ice cream for a dessert so polished and satisfying you won’t believe you actually made it. Get the recipe on The Minimalist Baker.

Weekend Recipe No. 2

No Bake Lemon Cookie Fruit Tarts



Tarts are another incredibly impressive-looking dessert that really aren’t as complicated as you’d think. Combine a no bake crust with a creamy filling, top it with all of your favorite fruits, and you’re good to go. By the way, while tiny tart pans are among the cutest cooking tools ever created, no one will be disappointed if you make these in a cupcake tin. Especially once they take a bite.

Weekend Recipe No. 3

Baked Sweet Potato Tater Tots



I’m trying to come up with a reason why you shouldn’t be making these incredibly easy, incredibly brilliant Sweet Potato Tater Tots every single day, but my heart’s not in it. This is a fantastic recipe that uses just a few ingredients to turn pureed sweet potato into delightful little tater tot-style poppers that will have you singing songs of the South with a dreamy look in your eyes. Seriously. Make these. Get the recipe on The Minimalist Baker.
