Springtime Sweets Roundup

Spring is here!  Or is it summer??  It’s already 80 degrees in Springfield, MO and I’ve seen people running around in shorts for weeks (aaaaand it’s STILL March) and kids playing in backyard swimming pools!  What is going on?!  I’m going to assume that winter decided not to show up this year and we are officially in warmer weather which means seasonal springtime desserts!  Yay!

Do any of you guys love the fresh and fruity flavors of spring as much as I do?  It’s nice to get away from the “heavier” desserts of winter and indulge in some that aren’t quite as rich and decadent…well, ok, they’re still decadent but the fruit aspect lightens things up nicely!  And you don’t feel *quite* as guilty.  At least I don’t!
