7 Best Summer Desserts
1. Mini Cherry Tarts
Summertime is all about pies and tarts to me! Besides the delicious taste, the best thing about these Mini Cherry Tarts is how simple they are to make. They are great on their own, but they’re even better topped with some whipped cream. Then, I dare you to try and stop at one!
2. Pound Cake
Sometimes simple is all you need. There’s just something so delicious about a perfect slice of pound cake, moist and so buttery it melts in your mouth. It’s the best! This pound cake is one of my favorites because it’s super simple to put together. It has whipped cream in between each layer, with blackberries and daisies to garnish.
3. Lemon Almond Cake
This cake literally screams summer. Not only is it sweet and delicious but it’s also gluten-free which will help you keep that summer body, well sort of haha. It honestly is one of my favorite cakes made to date!
4. Oatmeal Cream Pies
Growing up Little Debbie’s oatmeal cream pies were always some of my favorites. Unlike the originals, these soft and chewy oatmeal cookies are sandwiched together with yummy cream cheese frosting to create the perfect dessert that truly melts in your mouth. Forget about Little Debbie, these fresh, homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies are the way to go!
5. Blueberry Hand Pies
Not only are these blueberry hand pies super CUTE… but they are seriously delicious. It’s a sweet snack to share with friends or give to someone you think is a cutie pie! Just don’t forget to tell them, “I like you berry much!” Try out the recipe below and let me know what you think!
6. Strawberry Cupcakes
Let me tell ya, these strawberry cupcakes are phenomenal. They’re bursting with strawberry flavor and so are amazingly moist that it’s honestly hard to stop yourself from eating the whole batch. Luckily they’re a super light dessert so you don’t feel too bad doing so…
7. Strawberry Lemonade Donut Cake
These strawberry lemonade donut cakes are so adorable and really fun to make! Not to mention super easy because they can be as messy and crumbly as you want them to and it makes no difference. The lemon donut cake ended up being super moist and I topped it off with a delicious strawberry glaze. These mason jar cakes are perfect to give as a gift or for a summer BBQ!
