When spring finally arrives, the focus on food shifts to lighter recipes, with fresh flavors and colors. We crave lighter main dishes and fresh salads. So there are also dessert recipes that are appropriate for spring. These recipes are fresh and delicious, sweet and fluffy, and appropriate for many occasions.

Whether you're searching for a dessert for Easter, Mother's Day, or a shower or birthday, these delicious recipes will be enjoyed by all.

And yes, there is a theme: raspberries, lemons, and strawberries!

Spring Dessert Recipes

  • Updated Lemon Truffle Pie
    The original Lemon Truffled Pie is a fabulous recipe, but quite complicated. Buying a good quality lemon curd instead of making your own makes this pie a breeze.
  • Raspberry Walnut Torte
    This gorgeous layer cake is fresh and delicious. It's also not hard to make, if you prepare the cake itself a day ahead of time, then fill and frost it the next day. Follow the tip to make the cake even easier.
  • Lemon Bars
    My lemon bars must be sweet and tart, with a strong lemon flavor and tender texture. This recipe is perfect.
  • Strawberry Cream Dessert
    For a fresh taste of spring, this beautiful dessert can't be beat. And it makes enough to feed a crowd.
  • Lemon Angel Food Dessert
    This fabulous recipe takes just minutes to put together, and it tastes like so much more than the combination of ingredients.
  • Strawberry Mint Dessert
    You have to start this dessert a day ahead of time, so it's not a last minute treat. The mint adds a wonderful fresh taste.
