"If you ask me, it's the best part of any meal."
A dessert was any one of numerous forms of edible confections usually following a dinner or a supper. These confections could also follow a lunch. Desserts usually contained sucrose, or other forms of sugars.
When Benjamin Sisko and the crew of the USS Defiant were invited over for the first meal on Meridian, Sisko jokingly said he hoped the planet wouldn't suddenly disappear in the middle of dessert. (DS9: "Meridian")
In 2371, when Mardah described Jake Sisko as being "quite the hustler" at dom-jot during dinner with him and his father, Jake ducked out, suggesting he would check on how the dessert was coming. (DS9: "The Abandoned")
