Hi Rodelle Fans, and welcome to Friday Finds!

We’ve stumbled across some very incredible dessert recipes and decided, this is the perfect idea for upcoming Father’s Day. Almost every dad loves desserts, but not all dad’s enjoy the same thing. Some have a sweet tooth, and others prefer a more tart dessert recipe. We found a great post by Better Homes and Gardens that has 17 amazing dessert recipe ideas that’s sure to have at least one that is a homerun for dad. Our particular favorites include Hot off the Grill Apricot PieGrilled Berry Cobbler with Graham Cracker TopperGrilled Skillet Peach Pie. We decided to use these amazing recipes as inspiration for our own Father’s Day recipes.

Their “Hot off the Grill Apricot Pie” recipe inspired our Rodelle Vanilla & Apricot Almond Pastry 
Pie recipe. We changed a few things around so that our recipe only takes 45 minutes, whereas theirs takes a little over an hour and a half. However, their recipe is well worth the wait! We really enjoyed Better Homes and Gardens’ idea of baking fresh, in-season, apricots into a flaky, melt-in-your-mouth crust. They also added a little chili powder for an extra kick and prepared their recipe on the grill, which is such a wonderful idea for this time of year! After our pastry pie came out of the over, we inhaled deeply to take in the delicious aroma. We simply HAD to add chopped almonds to the top because we thought the combination would be perfect. The baked apricots were screaming out to be complimented by almonds. It’s easy to say, both recipes are excellent. They’re easy to create, and taste amazing.

Next, we came across their delectable Grilled Berry Cobbler with a Graham Cracker Topper! Is there anything better to put in a spring recipe than berries!? We don’t think so, which is why we fell in love with this crumbly, tart dessert recipe. It inspired our Rodelle Vanilla Bean Blueberry Peach Cobbler recipe. Better Homes and Gardens added blueberries, raspberries and blackberries to their amazing creation. Again, they decided to grill their recipe which adds such a fun touch to a Father’s Day dessert. Their cobbler takes just a bit over an hour to create, and they finished their masterpiece with a big, heaping scoop of Beary Good Cheesecake Ice Cream. Mmmm!


During spring/summertime, a grilling recipe really is the way to go. Just about every one of Better Homes and Gardens’ 17 Dessert Recipes have been created for the grill. We thought we should take theiradvice and created one of our own: Grilled Vanilla Apple Skillet Cake. The idea was inspired by their Grilled Skillet Peach Pie. Both recipes are incredibly delicious and can be baked on the grill. We chose to use apples just to give you a little recipe variety that will work year around. Here in Colorado, peaches are not always in season for us unfortunately. But whatever fruit you choose to use this Sunday, Dad will DEFINITELY love it!
