With Easter less than a week away, I thought a round-up of desserts that are perfect for springtime entertaining might be helpful. Although my mom typically takes care of the bulk of Easter dinner, I'm the one who makes the dessert. Since all things sweet are one my specialties, I'm always looking for delicious and creative ways to wow the crowd.
This list just might be my go-to resource for years to come. And while some of these are Easter specific, others are non-Easter themed for folks who host or attend other spring get-togethers. I think it's helpful to have a quick place to check when you need a good recipe or two. Enjoy the collection!
