    The dough is a little like a sugar cookie dough and doesn't get soggy with the fruit. Fill with fresh strawberries or your favorite fruit (my personal favorite is an assortment of sliced peaches, cherries, kiwis, and fresh strawberries arranged over a thin layer of custard topped with a clear jelly glaze, served with a dollop of whipped cream). Mom's favorite was simply fresh sliced strawberries with strawberry glaze, and whipped cream on the side. Delicious!! A great seasonal dessert. You will need a 10 or 11 inch boden torte pan for this recipe. The boden recipe is adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook", the filling is all mine.

    Moist champagne cake with peach schnapps and bits of diced peaches baked in, topped with a peachy champagne buttercream frosting! Taken from Sing For Your Supper.

    This is a beautiful cake to behold! And so easy with a prepared white cake. The frosting is absolutely divine. A wonderful spring or summertime dessert; make this cake at the peak of the season when strawberries are at their reddest and sweetest...enjoy! P.S. Great served with a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

    These tender scones, studded with fresh strawberries, sport an unusual glaze. Based on granulated sugar rather than confectioners', and tinted gold by a very high percentage of vanilla, the topping gives the scones a nicely crunchy finish. They're the perfect vehicle for a dollop of double Devon cream and a dab of jam (try strawberry-rhubarb or my strawberry jam recipe #388115). Strawberry and Cream Scones are great served warm, slathered in Honey Thyme Butter recipe #428651 or my Homemade Lemon Clotted Cream recipe #453683. From KingArthurRecipes.com.

    This is a traditional fresh plum cake, thought to have originated in the town of Augsburg, Germany. It is made with fresh Italian prune plums which are at their peak in late summer. Perfect for the afternoon coffee hour. Serve at room temperature, with a dollop of fresh whipped cream!

    Recipe #386977

    A great tasting, new lite version of the old stand-by 'Cherry Cream Cheese Pie'. One of my family's favorites, makes a nice potluck dessert!

    I am a lemon fanatic! These exquisite lemony muffins make for a wonderful picnic or sack lunch treat. Meyer lemons are a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin or sweet orange. Recipe is from the L. A. Times.

    Lots of peachy flavor in this easy no-bake icebox pie! Best made with fresh peaches but other fresh, frozen or canned fruit is good too. Pie may be refrigerated for at least three hours and then served--but it's firmer and easier to slice if made ahead and frozen, then defrosted for 10 to 15 minutes prior to slicing.

    A rich lemony, buttery filling--this is superb eaten as a pudding, or in a pie (see tip for making pie)! Recipe was passed down to a Southern Living Editor from her late mother, Louise Floyd of Potter's Station, Alabama. Thank you Ms. Floyd, for sharing this lovely recipe with us!

    Recipe #154996

    an old recipe..delicious..my grandmother used to make this

    Recipe #128329

    This is a nice and moist chocolatey cake, nicely spiced and we like the addition of walnuts. You can dress it up with a dusting of powdered sugar, if you like. Recipe is from my sis-in-law Susie; she's been making this cake since the 70s. Best made a day ahead. Makes one bundt or tube cake, or two loaves. Enjoy!

    Totally delicious and refreshing, this creamy margarita cheesecake pie pairs beautifully with a spicy Mexican meal of tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans. Very easy prep, with no baking required, so it's also a wonderful make-ahead dessert! Cook time is chill time. P.S. I sometimes cheat and use a prepared graham cracker crust. I hope you enjoy!

    From "The Original Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice" bottle label. A nice lighter version of the famous pie. No baking required. Cook time is chill time.

    Recipe #117748

    It's basically a Christmas Cake. There's no candied fruit- it's chock full of nuts. And it's drizzled with brandy....a big plus for a Christmas Cake. The only resemblance to fruit cake is the dough before baking- loaded with nuts and not much batter. A Maida Hatter recipe, adapted from Moveable Feasts.

    Recipe #469293

    A rich, fudgy bundt cake baked with Jack Daniel's in the batter and studded with chocolate chips, chopped pecans, raisins, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple pieces. I simply couldn't resist--can you? Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Adapted from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House Cookbook.

    Recipe #466538

    What sets this lemon tart apart from the classic is its addition of olive oil, not an uncommon ingredient in a part of the world (Provence, Nice, and the French Riviera) with landscapes peppered with gnarled and regal olive trees. It has a pleasing, almost vegetal flavour as well as silky texture. A technique of whipping the filling as it cooks on the stovetop produces an ethereal, light lemon filling reminiscent of lemon mousse and of an old fashioned lemon chiffon pie. Recipe found on Lemon Tart blog (Lemon Tarts are her specialty, and this tart is one of her favorites!). The sweet tart crust is adapted from Baking with Dorie by Dorie Greenspan). The filling is adapted from a recipe from Rosa Jackson.

    Recipe #461868

    This is a decadent and gorgeous cake that would be perfect for Mother's Day or a spring or summer soiree! The sweet-tart lemony lavender glaze lends a beautiful blush of pale lavender color to the finished cake. If you like, serve slices of this pound cake with a scoop of recipe #414812 on the side, finished with a sliver of candied ginger--heavenly! Slightly adapted from the beautiful cake found on http://cakewalker.blogspot.com; the original is Claudia Fleming's cake from her book 'The Last Course'.

    Recipe #455817

    Very special cupcakes. Start with a simple Martha Stewart recipe for cupcakes, add a rich creamy filling, and top with an even richer strawberry buttercream made with fresh strawberries and real butter! Lovely for a baby shower, a girls birthday, or a ladies tea. Adapted from "Confessions of a Tart".

    Recipe #454242

    I found this easy cassata recipe online, and it looks too good to resist! Here is what Leslie Sarna has to say about her recipe: So, I'm going to let you have a little slice of the secret family recipes! This is my Aunt Carol's recipe for Sicilian Cassata. It's served at every Christmas. If you love cannoli's then you are going to love this recipe! I wish I had a magic wand to erase calories so I could eat this everyday! Now this recipe is not the most traditional, but I think it's the best. Most of the time there is candied fruit inside and it's covered with marzipan, but who needs that stuff? We stick to the liquor, cannoli cream and cake!
