In this post, we are celebrating our favorite spring flavors — blueberry, strawberry, peach, lavender, and lemon. Head to your local farmer’s market, berry patch, or grocery store to pick up your ingredients and make one of these delicious recipes before the month is through!


Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert from The Gunny Sack

Layer graham cracker crust, cheesecake, blueberry filling, and cool whip for a dessert that will have you singing. We think this is the perfect dessert for the first picnic of the year. Make your own blueberry filling or buy a bottle of filling from the store.


Strawberry Buttermilk Doughnuts from Six Sisters’ Stuff

Wake up to these strawberry buttermilk doughnuts. Use strawberry jam and fresh strawberries to make them. The strawberry glaze — made with fresh strawberries, heavy whipping cream, strawberry jam, and powdered sugar — is our favorite part of this recipe.


Brown Sugar Peach Crumble Pie from Sally’s Baking Addiction

We are big fans of this brown sugar peach crumble pie. Pi Day may be over, but that doesn't mean we can’t still enjoy a slice of this delicious dessert. Pair your pie with a scoop of your favorite brand of (or homemade recipe for) vanilla ice cream.


Lavender Creme Brulee Recipe from Lavender and Macarons

Mix together heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, lavender, sugar, and egg yolks to make one of the sweetest desserts you’ll ever try. Broil this dessert until you’ve got your creme brulee at the perfect texture and temperature.


Lemon Crumb Muffins with Lemon Glaze from Baked by Rachel  

Sour cream makes these muffins soft and sugar makes them sweet. Top these lemon crumb muffins with a crumb topping made with unsalted butter, flour, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar. Finish them off with a drizzle of lemon glaze.
