9 Gorgeous Desserts for Springtime

Fresh Berry Granita - Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Maybe it’s because the Texas wildflowers are blooming and the sun is shining, but the world outside just inspires me to bring that beauty inside my kitchen. And what better way to reflect that beauty than to create desserts? 

Spring is the perfect time of year to embrace pretty desserts from tarts to cakes and everything in between. Whether you love to go all-out with strawberries or drench cake in glossy chocolate, we’ve got recipes for that show-stopping dish at the end of the meal.

Want to make your dessert even more special for springtime? Add sprigs of fresh mint, candied violets, or edible nasturtium flowers to bring the outside in.
