Which dish won our Viewer Quickfire Challenge?

Nov 17, 2010 - The Dish

Sherry Yard of Top Chef Just Desserts
You know your way around a kitchen. We put out the call for unique takes on dessert classics in our Viewer Quickfire Challenge, and you didn't disappoint. Drawing inspiration from the flavors of Extra Dessert Delights Gum and lured by the chance at a gift card good for a new kitchen, hundreds of recipes and photos poured in. But in the end, only three finalists went to the kitchen with Top Chef Just Desserts judge and Spago Executive Pastry Chef Sherry Yard:

Key Lime Lollies from Camilla S. of Nacogdoches, Texas

Strawberry Shortcake Whoopie Pies
from Suzanne B. of Basking Ridge, New Jersey

Triple-Chocolate Grasshopper Mint Sandwich Cookies from Julie H. of Las Vegas, Nevada

So which dessert proved worthy of a gift card good for a kitchen makeover? Well, we could tell you, but we'd rather have the video traffic. Plus, you wouldn't want to miss Sherry's take on the finalists.

But there were plenty of drool-worthy desserts in the running. We put the most mouth-watering of the bunch in our Viewer Quickfire Challenge photo gallery. And if all of that inspires you to take one of these recipes on, don't worry -- we've got you covered there too.
