Desserts that Celebrate Spring

Lemon Roulade with Strawberry-Mint Salsa

This sweet and tangy cake is served with a summery topping that combines fresh, ripe strawberries with bright mint and a surprising ingredient: jícama, which adds a wonderful crunch.

Roasted Rhubarb and Ginger Streusel Tart

Roasting rhubarb deepens its flavor, and the large pieces, while tender, hold their shape better than slices.

Lemon Brûlée Pie

Inspired by Thomas Keller’s lemon sabayon tart, this pie gets finished with a sprinkling of sugar and a flame for a sweet, toasty, crackly top.

Rhubarb Brown Sugar Crumble

A generous amount of oatmeal streusel tops this crumble, providing a crunchy contrast to the tart, juicy filling.

Lemon Icebox Cake

Early icebox cakes were festive chilled desserts made in molds with layers of cake (be it angel food, sponge cake, or ladyfingers) and custard or cream.

Rhubarb Rose Millefoglie

Millefoglie is the Italian version of the French pastry mille-feuille, meaning "thousand leaves," and is layered with whipped cream and fruit in a style similar to a napoleon.

Strawberry-Mint Shortcakes

Minty sugar-crusted biscuits, strawberries, and sweetened sour cream come together for a new take on a traditional favorite.

Lemon, Lavender, and Poppy Seed Loaf

Dried lavender adds a floral note to this sweet, fragrant bread that begs to be enjoyed with a cup of warm tea.

Rhubarb-Raspberry Galette

This rustic tart is wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Lemon Meringue Pie

Homemade lemon meringue pie can't be beat, but it is notoriously tricky to make.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler with Honey

In this rustic dessert, honey flavors both the tender biscuit topping and the sweet-tart fruit.
