Somewhat dessert term-challenged? Here are a few sweet, delicious and sugary words to remember...

Bombe glacee.
Despite the fancy name (French, of course!), this is just ice cream shaped in a spherical mold. Although today it may come plain, the original recipe for a bombe glacee involved a center of perfumed cream with fruit bits that is then covered with plain ice cream.

Bonbons.
No, you don't shake it! Bon actually means good. Literally, it's "good good" or goody goodies." Actually, it just means confections.

Ambrosia.
Originally, this meant the food of the goods - or at least those gods who lived in Olympus. However, the word also lent its name to a Southern (USA) dessert that is traditionally served during Christmas. It is composed of sectioned oranges and coconut - a surprising combination, on to which other fruits (e.g. bananas, pineapple, grapes etc.) are sometimes added.

Apple pandowdy.
Nope, this is not a dessert of Indian origin, although it sure sounds like one. Actually, it's an American dessert that descended from Pennsylvania Dutch settlers. It consists of apples, flavorings, sugar, butter and molasses. It is then baked in a deep dish and then covered with a pastry (crust). Before serving, the crust is cut into the apples (to dowdy) combining it - a curious practice that gave it it's name.

Shoo-fly pie.
You'd think that the scent of this pie would shoo away flies, right? Wrong. This pie got its name from the fact that flies are supposedly attracted to molasses. As such, they can't get enough of it, and thus, had to be shooed. It comes in both dry and wet versions. Perhaps it's the name, but the shoo-fly pie is sometimes considered to be unappealing by those not used to eating it as a dessert. Anyway, the fact that is too sweet to even those with a sweet tooth may have something to do it.
