New Season, New Desserts

Spring has sprung and that means that it is time to update our desserts. With new produce popping up at the farm stand and grocery store, there’s plenty of seasonal inspiration to be had. From year-round staples like zesty citrus to late-spring treats like strawberries and apricots, fruit is the perfect star ingredient for pies, crisps, cheesecake bars and more. In fact, we’re so excited about the season’s bounty that we even snuck a few rhubarb desserts into this roundup (we know, rhubarb is technically a vegetable!). We think you’ll enjoy them, too—starting with this comforting classic. It’s perfectly sweet, a breeze to whip up and ready in just one hour.
