Two Peas and Their Pod

Easter and Spring Dessert Recipes

I am looking forward to Easter weekend, even though it is still cold in Utah.  It snowed this week and not a light dusting either. I am talking thick, heavy snow. We had to shovel and scrape our cars…ok, Josh did all of the dirty work, but still. I was not happy. I am ready for SPRING! I hope it warms up soon.

We are talking Spring desserts today at Two Peas and Their Pod. If I can’t have sunshine, I can at least enjoy spring sweets to help brighten my mood. If you are looking for an Easter or Spring dessert to WOW your family and friends with, here are a few suggestions:

(Starting at top left)

Lemon Buttermilk Cookies
Berry Trifle with Lemon Mousse
Lemon Ricotta Biscuits
Coconut Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate
Lemon Buttermilk Shortcakes with Berries
Pink Grapefruit Yogurt Cake
Lime Bars
Lemon Loaf Cake
Lemon Angel Food Cupcakes

I love them all! Josh requested the Lemon Loaf Cake for our Easter dessert. We are making Lemon Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Strawberries for brunch, so we will be on lemon overload, but I am ok with that:)

What dessert are you making this weekend?

Happy Easter to all who celebrate! I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

  Yum Pin It

    This is just what I need to inspire me since I’m in charge of dessert this year!

    I have absolutely no plans for this weekend, but I already know that I’ll probably be baking something…. Usually I go through all my new bookmarks on Friday and pick something then, all of these options sound like great contenders though! It might be difficult for me to pick just one this weekend!

  3. bellini valli — April 2, 2010 @ 5:08 am

    I would be perfectly OK with being on lemon overload too:D

  4. Jessica — April 2, 2010 @ 5:32 am

    The lemon angel food cake cupcakes sound fabulous!

  5. Divina — April 2, 2010 @ 5:38 am

    Everything looks good. Can’t decide which one I would like to have.

  6. Sharlene — April 2, 2010 @ 6:03 am

    I love all the citrus options! Now that it’s warming up a bit in New Jersey I’m all about fresh spring flavors and bright colors. I already have a white chocolate pie in mind but a nice lemon cake would go great with it!

    I have two toddlers so we are doing a playful dessert: Dirt Cake! Complete with gummy worms! I figured my little munchkins would enjoy their flower pot desserts.Have a Happy Lemony Easter!

    Lemon or lime anything is just perfect for spring! Happy Easter to you and Josh! God bless you both! xo

    I heard about all the snow Utah was getting. I hope it will start to warm up soon. I think we all have Spring Fever!
    I love all your Easter Lemony suggestions. I have plans to make the girls lemon cupcakes this weekend so we can have Sunday after the Easter egg hunt. I love this time of the year.
    Have a wonderful Easter!!

    Oh wow! I looove these recipes. Yay for baking :)

  21. Melanie — April 2, 2010 @ 10:39 am

    I am making your Oreo cheesecake bars and a carrot cake for Easter. I made the Oreo bars last month for a party and I was amazed at how good they were!

  22. Michelle — April 2, 2010 @ 11:32 am

    It’s cold here too. Even though I dream about crisp salads and fruity desserts the reality is Im still am using my crock pot!

  23. Cara — April 2, 2010 @ 11:36 am

    Spring is certainly the time for lemon!

  24. Angie — April 2, 2010 @ 12:10 pm

    I am not sure yet, but it will involve strawberry, maybe a pie. I got 2 huge containers yesterday. Your recipe roundup looks great!

    They all sound wonderful.

  31. Cristie — April 2, 2010 @ 9:11 pm

    Lemon and strawberry have to be the two top flavors for me, lime slides in right behind them. Happy Easter!

  32. Manggy — April 3, 2010 @ 7:30 am

    Lovin’ all the lemon desserts, Maria! That loaf cake does indeed look repeat-worthy 😉 Just today I made a torta di mele with lemon :)

  33. Lynn — April 3, 2010 @ 7:42 am

    What a gorgeous virtual buffet of spring desserts? I’d like to take a plate and a taste of each one. I’m doing a lemon chiffon cake for Easter this year. Funny how lemon is such a “hello spring!” flavor.
    Happy Easter!

  34. Great compilation for Easter, I wish I could make all of them! xo

  35. Traci — April 3, 2010 @ 1:28 pm

    Great Easter dessert. Our family is trying to pick the dessert we want to eat while decorating Easter cookies tonight. Hope you and Josh have a great Easter!

  36. El — April 3, 2010 @ 5:54 pm

    What an amazing collection of recipes. Everything looks beautiful. Happy Easter!

  37. Dee Asay — April 3, 2010 @ 6:21 pm

    Lemon Buttermilk Shortcakes with Berries looks the best to me. I am going to make this over the weekend for my family.

  38. ingrid — April 3, 2010 @ 8:14 pm

    Lemon overload is good! I’d rather it than chocolate.

    Hope you have a Happy and blessed Easter!

  39. Nonna Beach — April 3, 2010 @ 9:28 pm

    Yummy list of desserts !
    My family requested I make strawberry shortcake for Easter dessert so I made a yellow cake in a jellyroll pan lined with parchment paper, cut up, then lightly sugared 4 lbs. of fresh strawberries and I will whip a quart of heavy cream about an hour before Easter dinner. Have a very blessed Easter !

    Great desserts for Easter!
