CHERRY PIE IN JARS WITH STARS
This easy recipe screams SUMMER! Pie in a jar? Yup, and so easy!
Using ready-made pie dough makes this dessert a breeze to put together. And these little individual pies are a real crowd pleaser!
Here at StoneGable, we have a summer’s supply of rhubarb in our garden. And I make this galette often because it is so easy to whip up! Use the pate brisee (pie dough) recipe in this post or use one from the refrigerator section of your local grocers. Just make this galette!
You can also substitute the summer fruit of your choice!
The perfect summer dessert!
We love strawberries!!! I’m are always thinking of ways to use them in desserts and salads and jam and desserts again! Lancaster County is known for our Strawberry Pies so I just had to share the recipe!
LEMONADE ICEBOX CAKE
I’m a huge fan of icebox cakes. My mother-in-law serves me a chocolate icebox cake when I was dating my husband many decades ago. And it was love at first bite! The dessert, not Bobby! LOL! Well, maybe Bobby too!
Ann created a lemonade version of these oldie but goodie summer refrigerator cakes. Speaking of love, I love all her recipes and photographs.
BERRY FRUIT CRISP IN A JAR
Put anything in a mason jar and it instantly elevates the contents! Things taste extra good!
Make the elements of this recipe and have them on hand when you have a sweet tooth or have company. I make the crisp and the fruit ahead and have it ready!
I also use the crumbly crisp on other things like yogurt! This is a keeper!
If you don’t have mason jars it tastes almost as good in a regular dish.
COOKIE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
This dessert isn’t so much a recipe as it is a formula! I’ve made ice cream cookies for decades. Make a bunch and freeze them for a super delicious summer dessert!
Remember to work some yummy add-ins into your ice cream!
This was on the the first recipes posts I wrote, almost 10 years ago!
GLAZED LEMON ZUCCHINI BREAD
I often say zucchini grows like weeds in our garden! So I’m always trying out new recipes for this versatile veggie!
I found zucchini gold with this pretty and so so moist and delicious dessert! I sometimes cheat and eat it for breakfast with a cup of coffee. It’s that good!
THE TASTIEST HEALTHY ICE CREAM
How pretty are these layered desserts in mason jars? Don’t you love the colors? This IS the healthiest and tastiest ice cream you will ever eat. And so easy to make!
This recipe, from my friend Janet at Shabbyfufu is filled with scrumptious fruit flavors!
I have the bananas already freezing , Janet!!!!
LAYERED ICE POPS
You are never too old to eat a popsicle! NEVER! And if they are homemade who can resist them, right?
I love these pops because they are made with fruit and honey! That’s it! So dig out some popsicle molds or ice cube trays and enjoy the glorious seasonal fruit frozen on a stick!
SIMPLIFIED BERRY CHANTILLY CAKE
Now, I’m not saving the best for last… but just look at this cake!!!!!!!
It must be the definition of beautiful!!! Oh my! Can a cake make you weak in the knees? This one can from my dear friend Ann, On Sutton Place.
And it’s made with a box cake mix! Bliss!
I hope you have time this summer to make every dessert! Summer is sweet and short so let’s eat dessert first!
