When you're trying to pick a yummy dessert for a large party, it can be hard to choose something that will please everyone. Do you go with a cake recipe, like carrot cake, or instead stick with your best recipes for mini food since everyone loves snacking? Are chocolate chip cookie bars the way to go, or is a nice cheesecake chocked full of a delicious cream cheese filling, topped with whipped cream? Forget choosing from your favorite desserts because with this hack from Tasty to make 8 desserts in one pan, this is all you'll ever need.
This recipe is the ultimate potluck dessert. With eight different dessert options, every single guest can try out a few different dessert recipes and eat to their heart's content. From apple pie and chocolate chip cookie bars to pumpkin pie and banana bread, this sheet tray has everything you'd want and more.
While the task at hand seems rather daunting, the recipe is fun to put together and requires only a bit of prep.
Start by preheating your oven to 300ºF and spray your sheet pan with a cooking spray and line with parchment paper. This will make removing the dessert a lot easier.
In one corner add 2 cups of chocolate chip cookie dough (this can be store-bought) and press into a rectangle. It should take up about 1/8th of the pan.
Next, shape 2 cups of M&M cookie dough into a rectangle catty corner to the chocolate chip cookie dough and press into a rectangle.
Break the graham crackers across the seams and place on the left of the long side of the M&M's cookie dough. Add two full graham crackers into the bottom of the pan and top with chocolate and mini marshmallows.
Add the prepared brownie batter in a rectangle next to the chocolate chip cookie dough and M&M's cookie dough. To make sure the batter is thick use half the amount of water when preparing the brownie mix.
Now it's time to start focusing on some pie for this tasty desserts recipe. Roll your pie crust to form a rectangle and press into the farthest right side of the pan, trimming off any excess if needed.
Place a double-layer strip in the middle of the rectangle to divide in two and then wrap a double-layer strip to the left, creating two solid pie crusts.
To the pie crusts add the canned apple pie filling and canned pumpkin pie filling. In the middle of the brownie and pie crust pour in your banana bread batter. Break another graham cracker and line the square between the banana bread and M&M's cookie dough. Fill with more graham crackers and cheesecake filling.
Place the sheet pan into the oven and bake until the dessert is cooked through, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and cool completely before transferring to a cutting board and slicing.
