Summer is heeeere! Okay, only almost, but I want you to be prepared! Baking may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about summertime activities (unless you’re me), but you’ll never go to a cookout, barbeque, or picnic without desserts! Here’s a roundup of 30+ Summer Dessert Recipes to keep things sweet all summer long!
With so many fruits to work with in summer, it’s easy to keep things light, refreshing, and seasonal! Being me, I of course have a couple decadent additions to the classic desserts you may expect. There’s even a few no-bake or nearly no-bake recipes in there for the really scorching days!
I’ve broken my best 30+ Summer Dessert Recipes into the following categories:
Summer Pie Recipes
Deciding what desserts to have during the Summer is “easy as pie!” You really can’t go wrong with these fruit-filled and creamy treats! Pro tip: try the Blackberry Cream Pie frozen!
Blackberry Cream Pie
A classic graham cracker crust filled with light-as-air blackberry cream, topped with fresh vanilla bean whipped cream and blackberries!
This Ginger Peach Biscuit Pie is filled with fresh peaches and ginger, and topped with slightly sweet cornmeal biscuits! This pie is just barely sweet, and perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
This Coconut Mocha Pie has a toasted coconut pastry crust filled with dark chocolate custard, topped with dalgona coffee swirled with whipped coconut cream! It's toasted coconut meets a mochaccino and I am HERE for it!!
The crust of this beauty is a fudgy brownie swirled with blackberry jam. The filling is a lavender-infused dark chocolate icebox pie, all topped with blackberry meringue. The flavors and textures are outstanding!
I had so many pie and tart recipes for this roundup that I had to put them in separate categories! So similar to pie, but with that extra bit of fancy! For more frozen goodies for those extra hot days, serve the Blueberry Curd Tart and Coconut Pineapple Tart straight from the freezer!
Blueberry Curd Tart
This Blueberry Curd Tart is a sweet pastry crust filled with homemade blueberry curd! You'll fall in love with both the flavor and that gorgeous color!!
This Peach Rose Tart has a sweet pastry crust filled with homemade pastry cream and topped with fresh peaches! Taking the time to make rosettes from the sliced peaches results in a showstopper dessert!!
