Need an easy dessert to take to a concert picnic dinner.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
We've got some awesome picnic menu ideas right here:
The blueberry galette is a personal favorite. You can also make individual galettes, or hand pies for easy eating:
This recipe sounds really good and not too completed and would be easy to transport. I am not terribly successful making crusts from scratch though. But I always give new recipes a trial run first. Thanks

Bar cookies. Just do a search on this site... enough options to keep you busy for a while. :-)

Alice Medrich's brownies. Super easy and so fun to end a meal with chocolate.
Thanks drbabs. looking for more of individual tarts or fruit cobbler. Our concert picnic dinners are quite elaborate and I need something that has a lovely presentation. But I will try the brownies. Thanks

I love Silver Palate's pecan squares. I had a wholesale dessert biz moons ago and the grocery stores and bakeries that I sold too couldn't stay stocked. It's a shortbread crust on the bottom and then the top layer is nuts, honey, butter and brown sugar. I made them with pecans or macadamias (my favorite). Sometimes I added mini choc chips and sometimes I didn't. They travel very well and can be made ahead of time.
classic cookies like chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin

Did you see the article here yesterday about fruit galettes? Given your preference for individual tarts or cobblers, you could make smaller ones (I make galettes often, and don't see a problem adapting to individual size): https://food52.com/blog...

I understand your desire for a glamorous dessert, but if the tart gets crushed in transit, or the weather is really hot and sticky, bar cookies are more forgiving. And I don't know anyone who doesn't like brownies or blondies.
I have taken creme brulee, apple crisps and they have traveled well. Just looking for other ideas. I usually wait to see what type of entree is being served before deciding on a dessert. Last concert had a Spanish flair with tapas and a poached salmon so I made a flan which was light and perfect for the type of dinner. But thanks for the suggestion. I will keep it in mind.
This recipe I posted is quite easy and definitely travels. I took 50 of them on a 9 hour plane ride a month ago and they survived 5 days in a bus afterwards! https://food52.com/recipes...
Thanks I will give them a try.

Are you in Colorado...because you could get some REALLY good brownies.
Try these pecan pie muffins! They are easy and transportable but look awful pretty! https://food52.com/recipes...
