Blueberry Nectarine Buckle

Easy dessert featuring blueberries (or other fruit). It's a beautiful thing, loaded with blueberries and simply fabulous.

It must be a really good year for blueberries and I swear I’ve made a ton of blueberry desserts – some with success, some not. This Blueberry Nectarine Buckle was perfect (even if the pics aren’t the greatest) and just loaded with fruit.

Desserts with Fruit

Many of my favorite desserts are made with fruit (the rest are usually chocolate!) Here you’ll find fruit based desserts, desserts with fresh fruit or dried or those that have a fruit sauce. Enjoy!

Apricot Tart

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see apricots at the store last week. While they may not be my all time favorite to die for fruit, I was like, “Well, hello old friend!” Seriously, I spotted a lady carrying some to her cart and went back to produce to find them.

Sabayon Lemon Tart

Light and fluffy, creamy & dreamy this tart takes a LOT of whisking - but it is soooo worth the work. Adapted from Chef Thomas Keller

Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling & Blueberry Compote

If there was ever a frugal “cheat” of a dessert, Profiteroles, or Cream Puffs, as they are often called, have to be it. Easy to make, requiring no special equipment, although a piping bag & tips is nice, inexpensive, and they can be made ahead. And once made, they can be filled & topped with all kinds of deliciousness. What more could one want?

Blueberry Custard Pie Bars

I suppose these bars should have a better name. They’re luscious, creamy and dreamy from the silky custard topping, just bursting with blueberries, all the way down to the gorgeous shortbread crust.
