Best dessert at Costco?

I have to bring a dessert to a potluck tomorrow night. Attending will be around 10-15 ladies. Others are bringing desserts as well. I don't have time to make anything so thought I'd pick up something at Costco. Any suggestions?

        I love the Costco pecan pie.

        The apple pie is good, but a bit too sweet for my taste..

      2. They have the best apple pie you can get from a store

        1. I'm fond of the tiramisu in the frozen dessert section. Be warned, it is addicting!

            Do you remember the name of the brand I've been trying to find the tiramisu since they speed carrying it at costco and no one knows what I'm talking about like it never existed

          2. LOVE the little eclairs/cream puffs in the frozen section (Nancys?). Good frozen or thawed!

              coney, ever buy Costco's cream puffs in the bakery case? I think eight come to a package, cream piled high; very rich and worthy of splitting with 3 guests (calorie wise) but mighty good.

                never seen them, I'll look next trip.

                But we would have to eat them right away :)

                (one advantage of the little frozen guys!)

                  I haven't seen the fresh cream puffs myself in the bakery area in a while and the tiramisu square (more pudding like) pack seems to have been replaced by a tiramisu cake. Your post reminded me of the puffs. But the fresh baked good areas varies, noticeably, Costco site to site. I agree the frozen version is much easier to enjoy over time (portion) tho...but the fresh baked was a real treat. Happy hunting!

                    Has anyone tried the tiramisu cake?

                    1. re: givemecarbs

                      I haven't tried the cake, only the "pudding version" and I found it too much pudding & not enough cake.

                        Oh I liked the pudding aspect of it HillJ. To each his or her own but on a hot summer afternoon. that tiramisu delivered as promised. Quite the pick me up. Hope it is not gone forever.
