Amaretto Bread Pudding

The homemade Amaretto Bread Pudding at The Town is so delicious, rumor has it customers have tried to pay off the owners for the recipe. They won’t budge—and with good reason. It has the perfect blend of flavors and light chewiness. This melt-in-your-mouth, Amaretto-spiked dessert keeps ‘em coming back. After having it, our guess is you will too. 

$7 per serving. 
The Town Restaurant, 18608½ Ventura Blvd.,
Tarzana, 818-578-6331

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie

If you haven’t been to Republic of Pie yet, here’s one of our favorite reasons to go: Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie. It’s pecan pie on steroids—sweet without overdoing it; smooth with just the right crunch. Oy vey! 

$5.25 per slice or $28 for a six-slice pie.
Republic of Pie, 11118 Magnolia Blvd.,
North Hollywood, 818-308-7990

Yam Cheesecake

The YAMS catering company specializes in southern favorites with a focus on dishes inspired by the uber-healthy yam. So no surprise that they’ve come up with the perfect Yam Cheesecake. Lighter than the traditional version and with a dizzying concoction of subtle spices, a slice of this pie is worth every darn calorie … and then some. 

$22 for a pie that serves six.
