Whether at the farmers’ market or in the supermarket produce aisle, bright, glowing raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are difficult to resist at this time of year. It’s a truism is that berries at the height of their season are best served without much fuss—and if you subscribe to that notion, our Mixed Berries with Vanilla Bean Syrup dessert is for you; uncooked berries barely adorned with a fragrant syrup.

But if you can’t resist turning those berries into pies, tartlets, turnovers, and more—well, you’ve come to the right place. Read all about a versatile shortbread dough that becomes the base for a mixed-berry pie, rustic raspberry turnovers, and tartlets filled with lemon curd and topped with fresh, ripe berries. The English dessert summer pudding—little more than bread soaked in fresh berries and their juices—is another brilliant way to use a mixed berry harvest.

If you prefer to enjoy your summer berries one variety at a time, try our Blackberry Grunt, Blueberry Ice Cream, or Raspberry Galette.
