There are so many delectable treasures to be found in the dessert world beyond traditional cookies, cakes, and pies. This section gathers seasonal favorites, holiday specialties, frozen treats, ethnic-inspired sweets, and all-around top-notch dessert recipes. In springtime, berries star in many desserts. Try our berry-studded souffles, shortcakes, cakes, pies, and more. As warm summer months approach, fruits are even more prevalent. We've taken some classics and given them a fresh twist, including amazing grilled desserts. Ice cream, of course, has a favored place in our summertime dessert rotation. We've got easy-to-follow varieties for everything from ice cream sandwiches to ice cream cakes. Come fall, harvest fruits shine, and the focus in desserts turns more toward comfort. We teach you how to make a variety of bubbly cobblers and crisps, as well as easy-to-bake apple dessert ideas and fall cakes that maximize the unique flavors of the season. Of course, most desserts work well any season, including rich and creamy puddings, mousse recipes, and stunning layered trifles, too. Many ethnic cuisines have sweet specialties you won't want to miss, such as Italian cannoli and biscotti, as well as Mexican flan and churros. You'll find them all here.
