Sweets The Serious Eats Team 3 comments

On Labor Day, we really pull out all the stops to embrace the last days of summer. That means ingesting as many scoops of fresh, cold ice cream as possible chased down by slices of pie bursting with summer fruit. We also like desserts that don't require fuss or turning on the oven (they should call it no-Labor day, really) and desserts that can easily feed an unexpected guest or twelve. Sound like your kind of party? Here are some great recipes that fit the bill. More

The Crisper Whisperer: Caramel Apples for Labor Day and Beyond
