8 Desserts 1 Tray – Can it be Done ? 4


I was challenged by a fellow Youtuber, Stephen Halbhuber. Could I make 8 Desserts in 1 Tray?
Well I’m always up for a challenge and of course I decided it would make a great Video Recipe.

Now this has been made with ‘Box Desserts’ but I just had to try and recreate it completely from Scratch. I think it turned out great and it was certainly fun to make but by all means if you want to make this yourself you can use ‘Box Mixes’.
Whichever way you make it don’t forget to send me a pic or two 😎 👍 💕

Instructions

  1. Once you have all your dessert mixes made and chilling in the fridge it is time to construct your masterpiece.
    Spray a 11 x 16 inch tray with cooking oil and line with baking paper.
    Visually divide your tray into 8 equal portions.
  2. In the top left hand corner place the chocolate chip dough and shape into a smooth oblong.
    Next place the M&M cookie dough in the 1/8th next to the other dough but in the lower half.
    Lay the cookies for the Smores in the base of the bottom left corner, stand cookie along the inner two sides. Lay the chocolate on top of the cookies and top with the ini marshmallows.
    Pour the brownie batter into the space above the M&M Dough. Level off and make nice and square.
    In the right hand side of the tray lay the pie crust. Trim off the excess along the outer edges. Place the dividing piece of pastry in the centre of the pastry to create two seperate pies. Press along the base to get a good seal. Next place the edge piece of the pie crust in place and seal any edges with a little egg white. You should now have two seperate pie cases.
    Fill the top right pie crust with the pumpkin pie filling and the lower right pie crust with the apple pie filling.
    In the last remaining top 1/8th pour in the banana bread batter and smooth out the top and in the bottom 1/8th lay the cookies in the base and up the sides next to the banana bread and M&M Dough. Pour in the New York Cheesecake and level the top.
    I laid a lattice of pastry over the top of the apple pie just so it would look good and brushed it with a little egg white.
  3. Now it is time to get the tray into a pre heated oven and bake for 1 hour.
    Once it has cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before lifting it out of the tray onto a cutting board.
  4. Cut the desserts into even bite size morsels and don’t worry if you get more than one dessert in a piece that is half the fun.
    Have fun and Enjoy!!!!
