Fruit desserts are delicious no matter the season.
There’s really a time for every fruit to shine!
But out of the dozens of fruit desserts I’ve made throughout the years, there are certainly a few that stand out. And a few that I will make no matter the season!
Are your favs the same as mine? Check them out below!
Something about the sweet and tart combo always makes my tastebuds jump for joy.
These lemon squares are light and refreshing which is why they always make an appearance in my house as we head into summer.
They have a filling similar to lemon curd, but the crispy layer that forms when baked really adds some incredible texture to these squares.
My grandma is the mastermind behind a bunch of my recipes. And her blueberry cobbler is a classic that brings me right back to her kitchen!
My grandma actually grew her own blueberries on her farm in Indiana which is why this cobbler was extra special.
But even without the freshly-picked berries, this easy-to-make dessert is a treat you won’t be able to resist.
Derived from the recipe above, this classic peach cobbler is a must-try. Megan from the Just Jill team helped me make it and both of us were going back for seconds…
It’s simple to make and it uses canned peaches. So, it doesn’t need to be peach season for you to enjoy this dessert!
You don’t have to head down to the Florida Keys to have a good key lime pie.
And because mine features a special ingredient, you won’t be able to find these anywhere else!
I’m sure you guessed it thanks to the name, but the ingredient that makes these mini key lime pies stand out is white chocolate.
Better yet? They only require five ingredients!
If you’d like to make a full-size pie you can do that as well. The recipe doesn’t need to change. But there’s something about being able to dive into your petite and personal pie that I just love.
The reason I adore pound cake is that it gives you an excuse to have a dessert for breakfast.
Super moist with hints of vanilla and lemon, this cake is slightly sweet and tender.
I made sure this recipe would make two loaves instead of just one. Why? Because whenever I make it for a neighbor, friend or for my mom, I always like to keep one for myself! Don’t tell anyone… okay?
If you don’t want to eat it right away, it freezes super well. But I doubt you’ll be able to wait long before taking a bite!
There really isn’t a time of the year when you can’t find a good batch of strawberries in the grocery store.
I also crave them whether it’s spring, winter or any season in between!
This is actually my birthday cake of choice. I make it for myself almost every year!
And while the base of the cake is fantastic alone, the strawberry buttercream frosting is a must-try.
Okay… so it might not be the pizza you know and love, but these simple sugar cookie pizzas won’t disappoint!
My sour cream sugar cookie recipe is one of the most versatile recipes in my collection. Awesome for holiday cookies or as a base for decorative birthday cookies.
But one of my absolute favorite ways to use this recipe is for these fruit pizzas.
After baking the cookies, top them with cream cheese frosting and some of your favorite fruit. I prefer berries and kiwis, but anything will work!
A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of making cheesecake. But the truth is that it can be super simple.
Especially if you make my no-bake version!
Similar to a fruit cobbler, you can change up this cheesecake recipe to fit your flavor preferences.
If you’re a strawberry-lover, top the cheesecake with strawberries! More of a blueberry person? You can’t go wrong with some canned blueberries.
And when the Fourth of July rolls around, combine the two to look like an American flag!
DO you have a favorite fruit? Next time you’re craving it, turn that fruit into some fruit desserts!
Because no matter the day or time, dessert is always welcome in my book.
From my kitchen to yours,
