My Favorite Summer Desserts
I love to cook in the summertime and today I am sharing my favorite summer desserts. All of these recipes are amazing and delicious!
It’s my birthday so today I am sharing recipes for macarons, summer cakes, ice cream, a frozen pie, a summer pie, popsicles, s’mores, cobbler, and more tasty desserts. I loved making each of these desserts and I guess you could say these are all of my favorite summer desserts.
Some of these tasty desserts are really simple and others are more difficult. And yet they all taste amazing! And they can all be made as a birthday dessert!
Summer desserts can be similar and yet so different! I love light and fluffy desserts which can be lemon cream pie or homemade marshmallows. Both taste great and are so perfect for warm summer nights.

But what about homemade marshmallows and s’mores? Hello! Desserts don’t get any better than this! Especially on a summer evening.
Many of you know how much I love to cook. It’s relaxing and I really enjoy it. It’s fun to open up the pantry and drab some ingredients and decide what to make. Especially if it is a summer dessert!
To me, nothing is better than serving a fabulous dessert at the end of a dinner. Summer evenings, when the air is thick with the lingering heat of the day and the heady scents of sunscreen and citronella, seem to beg for a sweet ending to the day. Everything is a little slower and sweeter in the summer.
If you want a really simple summer dessert, then I suggest you make this Frozen Limeaid Pie. It really is easy to make.
And I can promise you that it tastes delicious!
One of the reasons I love making desserts is that it is easy. What makes it easy? I have a well-stocked pantry. I put together a list of all of the things I try to keep in my pantry. You can find my list here.

Here is a list of all of my favorite summer desserts. I hope you will make some of these desserts and get as much pleasure as I did serving them to my boys.
My Favorite Summer Desserts
This Meyer lemon pie is the perfect amount of sweet and tart with a yummy graham cracker crust. IT has a lemony whipped cream and candied lemon peel garnish. Bookmark this recipe, it is a crowd-pleaser!
I doubled this recipe to make the three-tiered cake.
One of my favorite Summer Desserts Is Frozen LimeAid Pie. You are going to love this recipes when you see how easy it is to make this amazing frozen dessert.
This Meyer Lemon and raspberry Olive Oil cake is amazing. The combination of the sweet Meyer lemon with the raspberries and the Mascarpone cream is just fabulous. this dessert is a win-win for sure.
This Citrus Stained Lemon Tart is one of a kind. I love the taste and it is gluten-free! Of course, if you want, you can leave the citrus on top to serve.
This berry pie is one of the most delicious and prettiest pies you will ever make. The crust recipe is courtesy of Chef Monique Chan.
Sugar Sea Glass can be used in so many ways. I love how it looks on the side of a cake.
The fresh fruit popsicles are so refreshing and delicious!
These vanilla marshmallows are amazing. By adding a peanut butter graham cracker crust they are now even better!
Macarons are so much fun to make. I love how perfectly these look and am thrilled they taste amazing!
The kouign-amann is pronounced "queen a-mahn" and is from Brittany, France. It's like a cross between a croissant and a palmier, with layer after layer of buttery, flaky pastry on the inside, yet caramelized with ever-so-slightly-burnt sugar on the outside.
This fabulous recipe is used used to make pastries such as profiteroles, cream puffs, and eclairs. Today we are making Choux Puffs with a Mousseline cream and Raspberry filling. These measurements yield a high volume of puffs, so feel free to halve (or otherwise divide) the recipe according to your needs.
The mini pies not only look adorable but they also taste great.
This 1-2-3-4 cake recipe is so easy to make and yet it tastes and looks fantastic.
This homemade coffee ice cream is so creamy and delicious, When layered with oreo cookie crust, hot fudge, and whipped cream, you can create mud pie sundaes.
