The Best Dessert in 24 Countries Around the World

A meal isn't complete without dessert. While that's true around the world, desserts differ from country to country.

Some are light and fruity, and some are rich and chocolaty. From Japan's mochi to Poland's poppy seed rolls, read on to see what people use to satisfy their sweet tooth in 24 different countries.

France: Crème brûlée

Crème brûlée is a favorite dessert all over France. It contains rich, creamy custard topped with a layer of hard, crunchy caramel that is just slightly browned.

In Indonesian, dadar means pancake and gulung means to roll, so it's no wonder this dessert — popular on the Indonesian island of Java — is named dadar gulung. It's a green pancake made from pandanus leaves that is rolled and then filled with coconut sugar.

America: Apple pie

It doesn't get any more American than apple pie. The pie — consisting of apple pieces wrapped in a flaky crust — can be served with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or even cheddar cheese.

Turkey: Baklava

One of Turkey's specialties, baklava, consists of phyllo dough layered between a mixture of chopped nuts. The squares are held together by syrup or honey.
