Wednesday Replay: 9 Strawberry Desserts for Spring

I buy strawberries year-round, but oh, when March hits and they start getting really good...that's when you know spring has sprung! Maybe because my mom used to serve strawberries with little bowls of powdered sugar for dipping, they're definitely one of my favorite fruits. 

From cookies bars to cakes to frozen yogurt, nine strawberry recipes to make this spring.

This week's look back in the archives is an homage to the strawberry. Click the links to go to the recipes. 

Nine Strawberry Desserts to Make this Spring

From 2015, Sugar Cookies Bars with Strawberry Glaze and Edible Flowers

Not only are these so pretty and so delicious, but they also hold a special place in my heart as I made them on the Today show with Kathie Lee and Hoda. I will always remember that day as KL said something during the pre-taped segment that had to be cleared the legal before we wrapped. Ha. It was really, really funny. 

From 2014, Strawberry Layer Cake with Amaretto Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Y'all. I'm coming to the realization that if I ever want guest spots on TV, I might need to make more strawberry desserts. I ALSO made this cake (different day) on the Today show with Kathie Lee and Hoda. What I remember about this segment, other than I was sweating more than I ever had in my life, was that they told me not to be insulted if Hoda didn't eat the cake because of a food intolerance. She ate it. I love Hoda. Oh gosh...the video of our segment (hi, Ree and Maria!) is still online. 

From 2010, Simple Strawberry Decorated Cookies

Such a simple design, but these cookies are still some of my favorites. Making dots with royal icing is so satisfying. If you've never made decorated cookies, this is a good cookie for beginners. 

From 2018, Strawberry Cocoa Nib Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh, guys! The freeze-dried strawberries in the cookie dough add this zippy tartness while not turning these into "fruit cookies." Plus, that pop of red in the cookies makes them extra beautiful. 

From 2018, Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

how to make strawberry frozen yogurt

Back in the day of the first TCBY and I Can't Believe It's Yogurt shops, I fell hard for froyo. Making it at home is surprisingly easy. Bonus: you can have as many toppings as you want. (Post also includes recipes for chocolate and vanilla frozen yogurts.)

From 2020, Strawberry Refrigerator Cake

One of the best recipes to come out of my kitchen in 2020 is this creamy and fresh no-bake refrigerator cake. Just go ahead and put it on your must-make list! 

From 2016, Chocolate Cheesecake-Filled Strawberries

If you didn't get a chance to make these for Valentine's Day, you have all of spring and summer to make these happen. Let me suggest - Easter! 

From 2019, Walnut and Strawberry Torte

Not only is this torte beautiful and delicious, but the recipe is naturally gluten and dairy-free.

From 2019, Strawberry Basket Cookies

Last but not least, one more version of strawberry decorated cookies. This set includes the oh-so-cute strawberry basket. Seriously, if any grocery store sold berries in these baskets, my berry consumption would increase fourfold. 

Yay for strawberry season!
