There’s nothing like a delicious spring and summer time dessert to satisfy your cravings for a yummy treat during the warmer months. Depending on what you and your sweet tooth are craving, there are several desserts to select from to make. From tarts to cakes, use your imagination and make a dessert that’s perfect for the seasons. If you haven’t made the desserts listed below, try pulling up a new recipe. I’m sure it will be absolutely delicious and worth your time to make.
Even though the fourth of July is a long time away, practicing to make a blueberry tart in April will get you prepared to make desserts in July. A tart with blueberries goes perfectly with a red, white, and blue theme, and you can also add some red via strawberries if you wish. Use a frozen puff pastry and make an elegant dessert that is filled with a lemon-infused cream cheese filling. Delicious!
