Some people have a true talent for this. For years I've been trying to make this french fruit pie like thing called Clafouti. My crust never comes out right and I wind up eating the fruit and custard.
My best desserts are usually mousses as they don't involve a pie crust or cake. I make a mean Chocolate Mocha Mousse with mocha whipped cream (recipe by Maida Heater).
What are your tried and true desserts?
