Whatever you choose, have a spectacular dessert at the end of the meal! A light, sweet treat — be it a fruity delight or a towering cake — is a delicious way to celebrate spring. Can’t see the right dessert for you? Filter by “dessert” in our Recipe Finder.

Whole Lemon Pie, pictured above. A sunny, simple lemon pie is a delicious treat to end the party. There isn’t a lot of hands-on work, but there is some waiting time, so plan ahead. If you prefer your lemon candies bite-sized, make small Lemon Tassies. And if you prefer something without a crust, make Lemon Pudding With Blueberry Whipped Cream.

pecan pie† This long, glamorous Bundt cake is aromatic with pineapple and studded all over with pecans and golden raisins. It will be a welcome addition to the dessert table.

Pear and toasted miso upside down cake† Looking for something else? A little glamorous? And gluten free? Say no more. Impress your guests with this beautiful cake.

Carrot Cake With Brown Butter-Cream Cheese Glaze† Carrot pie graces many Easter spreads, but this carrot pie is extra special thanks to that decadent brown butter-cream cheese frosting.

Triple Coconut Cake† Coconut milk, oil and toasted shavings make this nostalgic favorite scream coconut.

Strawberry Fool With Raspberries† Keep it quick and easy with this fluffy fool, which requires the use of frozen strawberries. If you’re looking for frosty instead of fluffy, make Rhubarb + Strawberry Granita, which features one of spring’s favorite flavor combinations.
