I just got back from Portugal and they have a very tasty dessert called a pastel de natas. It’s a small tart-like thing made with egg custard. It was apparently invented by women who were bored after being banished to nunneries for being unmarriable. You can get them in Newark where there’s a large Portuguese community but they’re not as good.

Cheesecake - graham cracker crust is a must, and I like fruit on top. My wife makes a layered pumpkin pie/cheesecake that is GODLY. Alas...she only makes it like, twice a year (around the holidays, so at least I'll get one soon).

Brownies - I prefer brownies to a cake for my bday. And pretty much whenever I can get them. Just about any type, though I prefer them without nuts.

Chocolate Chip Cookies - Warmed up and juuuust slightly underdone so they're chewy vs. crispy. My wife makes them with toffee bits or Andes chocolate mints from time to time and they're AMAZING.

Portugal so trendy these days.
