Spring has sprung, and the shift has us craving a menu that’s fresh, fruity, and filled with flavor. With the abundance of seasonal produce now available at the farmer’s market, this is the ideal time to head to the kitchen, break out the KitchenAid, and bake the day away! We’ve rounded up some spring dessert recipes that are perfect for a party on the porch or just great to whip up for a night at home with your loved one.
Passion Fruit-Coconut Bars
Classic lemon bars get a tropical twist in this recipe for Passion Fruit-Coconut Bars. Simple and sweet, try cutting them into bite-size pieces for a potluck or larger squares for a decadent après dinner treat.
Roasted Strawberry Milkshake
Roasting might not be the first cooking method you think of when it comes to strawberries, but leave it to the brilliant Jessica of How Sweet Eats to concoct a milkshake dreams are made of. April through June is prime time for strawberries, and a frothy Roasted Strawberry Milkshake with Chocolate Pistachio Brittle is just the thing to cool off now that the temps are rising!
Apricot Crème Fraîche Tart
This Apricot Crème Fraîche Tart with Honey and Pistachios first caught our eye because, well, it’s a visual masterpiece. Apricots are abundant right now, so if you’re looking for a true showstopper for a spring soirée, stop the search and serve up this pretty pie.
Spring Confetti Bars
Maybe it’s our inner child speaking, but these Spring Confetti Bars are almost too cute to eat. From the pastel toppings to the ooey-gooey batter, these blondies are ones for the books. Serve them at a book club meeting or bring them to the office for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Rhubarb Meringue Cups
Rhubarb is everywhere right now. With a tantalizing tart taste, it’s the perfect springtime fruit. We love the idea of pairing this strong flavor with something as delicate and light as meringue, like these gorgeous Rhubarb Meringue Cups.
