Being short on ingredients and time to go to the store before your party guests arrive is no problem when it comes to certain desserts. These five sweet recipes require five or fewer ingredients, but that’s not stopping them from being extremely delicious.
Lemon Curd Tarts
Lemon curd tart is probably the little sweet everyone loves. All you need for this recipe are lemon curd, frozen miniature phyllo shells, frozen whipped topping, and ground cinnamon.
This dessert is very affordable, and all you will need to make these little delightful meringues is a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), cream of tartar, white sugar, and vanilla extract.
A macaron—or French macaroon—is truly a treat that looks and tastes very expensive, but it has only five ingredients. Egg whites, powdered and granulated sugar, finely ground almonds or almond flour, and mascarpone cheese are all you need to make them.
Peanut Butter Cookie
All you need to prepare the home-made version of these cookies are peanut butter, white sugar, eggs, all-purpose flour, and baking powder.
