From Copycat Recipe Guide
Dessert recipes can range from the simple to the complex, featuring dishes such as pie, ice cream, cookies, and cake. Many national restaurant chains such as the Olive Garden, Cracker Barrel, and Cinnabon are famous for their recipe concoctions, but home cooks can duplicate many of these with a few directions. There are also a few breakfast dishes that can double as desserts when cooks make a couple of adjustments to the recipe. Desserts can be prepared to serve parties of any size, including individuals and large crowds.

Simple Dessert Recipes
Several classic restaurant dessert recipes are easy to prepare, even if they sound complicated. For example, the Cheesecake Factory's French Toast Napoleon includes a homemade chantilly cream topping that can be easily replicated using heavy cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Olive Garden's Chocolate Ricotta Pie recipe makes a lush, velvety pie with just nine ingredients. Cooks can even prepare IHOP's Cheesecake Pancakes quickly by using homemade Bisquick mix.
Healthy Dessert Recipes
Diners who are trying to eat healthier don't have to give up desserts. They can find easy recipes that feature their favorite sweet dishes, but are prepared with low-calorie or low-fat ingredients. One such recipe is Boston Market's How to Make Boston Market Cinnamon Apples. This dish is made with sliced apples, cinnamon, and a homemade brown sugar topping. To make it lighter, cooks can substitute raw or cane sugar for the brown sugar and skip the butter.
Despite its sweet taste, Wendy's Frosty dessert is a fairly low-calorie treat. Home cooks can duplicate this dessert by combining vanilla ice cream (light ice cream works fine) with chocolate Nesquik powder and whipped cream.
Girl Scout Cookie Recipes
Each winter, cookie lovers get to order their Girl Scout cookies, but many home cooks can prepare their own dessert recipes featuring these cookies all year round. Classics such as Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, and Trefoils are fairly simple to make from scratch.
Once cooks master these cookie recipes, they may want to move on to ice cream recipes that feature Girl Scout cookies such as Samoas Cookie Ice Cream, Tagalongs Cookie Ice Cream or Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream.
