Caramel-Tangerine Parfaits

Maura Kilpatrick's killer parfaits are the perfect contrast of cold, crunchy and creamy. They're fabulous for entertaining, because you can make the caramel cream, granita and caramel ahead of time and assemble them just before serving. The crunch can also be served over vanilla ice cream.

Mango Pudding

Very ripe mangoes make this simple Chinese pudding sublime. Traditionally, agar-agar—a derivative of seaweed—is used as the thickener. We use more commonly available gelatin and add sweetened condensed milk for a touch of creaminess. Use a very fine sieve for the smoothest texture. The recipe can be cut in half to make 4 puddings instead of 8.

No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake

This no-bake cherry cheesecake is an easy summertime treat. If you want a bright red topping, use sour cherries. Sweet cherries give it a more purple hue. To make gluten-free no-bake cherry cheesecake, use gluten-free graham crackers.
