Good news, America: Patti LaBelle has some sweet surprises in store for us.
After the massive success of her sweet potato pies in 2015, the legendary singer has developed five new desserts which will be available exclusively at Walmart starting Friday, September 2nd. On the menu are three cobblers (apple, peach, and berry), apple pecan cake, and sweet potato loaf — a nod to last year’s pie that’s similar to banana bread.
To help create the recipes, LaBelle drew upon family recipes as well as her own experimentation in the kitchen. “I’ve been cooking for most of my life,” she tells PEOPLE. “As you’re standing in the kitchen and you think of certain ingredients, you just put them in — sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t.”
The desserts — which LaBelle says are “for anyone with good taste” — are pre-baked, you just have to toss them in the oven to warm them through again. And the best part? “You can even lie and say you made them,” she laughs. (Duly noted.)
