Spring Dessert Recipes

There are lots of reasons to celebrate in the spring, from Easter and Cinco de Mayo to Mother's Day and graduations. For every celebration, you need an ample amount of spring party desserts. While pies and cakes are fine choices, we've collected a few spring party recipes that will be favorites for a long time to come. 

Lemon Ice Cream Cups

A yummy and refreshing spring dessert to cleanse everyone's palate. 

  • 4 large lemons
  • 1 pint of lemon sorbet
  • Optional: whipped cream + mint for garnish
Trim the bottom off of the lemons so that they sit flat on a plate. Note: You don't want a hole in the bottom of your lemon so be sure to not cut too much off. Next, cut the top off of the lemon (about 1/4 to 1/3 to of the lemon) and scoop out all of the pulp from the inside of the lemon. Scoop the sorbet into the lemon shells and add whipped cream and fresh mint on top for garnish. Freeze the lemon cups if not serving them immediately.
