Same here, bachelorwatcher. I think the best sugar-free ice cream is Breyers. Love their vanilla ice cream. For me, it's harder to find a sugar-free pastry. It would be wonderful to find a sugar-free sprinkled donut.
Cobbler. I vividly remember a friend of my mother coming over to make blackberry cobbler, and it is a very fond memory. My mother also made peach cobbler. I've tried making it as an adult but it always comes out watery instead of syrupy.
My Mom's Mom was trained by her mother who had southern roots. I remember a Chess Pie (with dates) that was soooo rich. I tried to make it and served it to a friend from Georgia. Unfortunately I served it with whipped cream with NO sugar. I forgot. He had a face. FAIL!

As a child, we frequently had Jello or pudding, cookies (Oreos, Chips Ahoy, Charles cookies), and sometimes my mom made apple crisp (my dad's favorite). We also often had ice cream in the freezer (heavenly hash and tin roof were family favorites) and ice cream treats (both my parents loved Drumsticks). Then there were Hostess fruit pies, Twinkies, Snowballs, Zingers. My parents often brought those home when they went to the convenience store to get milk.
We didn't have a very formal meal plan so it's not like we had salad first, then the entree, then dessert. When we had soup or salad it was served with the rest of the meal and dessert was something you could eat at any time!
Probably why most of our family ended up on the heavy side. My dad and sister were the only ones at an average weight while I was growing up. My sister is heavier now.
