According to Joy Wilson, the creative genius behind the blog JoytheBaker.com, everything is better with pie. And caramel. And definitely ice cream. And, I agree. National Dessert Day is the perfect time to put your money where your sweet tooth is. If you’re looking for super easy and decadent desserts to help you celebrate the big day, Joy’s cookbook Homemade Decadence: Irresistibly Sweet, Salty, Gooey, Sticky, Fluffy, Creamy, Crunchy Treats has over 100 ideas for you.

After drooling over pages and pages of beautifully photographed ice creams, cakes, and cookies (and talking myself out of trying to make everything in the book) I finally settled on three delicious recipes to help me celebrate National Dessert Day. Which recipes will you choose?
