Beat the Heat With Our Best-Ever Summer Cakes and Pies
Is a picnic really a picnic without dessert? Absolutely not!
Cakes and pies for the summer should be made with all the fresh fruits that the season brings, so these recipes include strawberries, peaches, blueberries, plums and more summery fruits you’ll have on hand anyway. Of course, a summer dessert menu wouldn’t be complete without some lemon and key lime options, which you'll find here as well. But for those of you who aren't crazy about fruity or citrusy desserts, there are peanut butter, mocha, and chocolate options on this list, too. Cool down on a hot summer day with an ice cream cake the kids will love, or throw together an easy no-bake cake or pie for a last-minute party or picnic with our best summer cake and pie recipes.
