Spring has sprung! The delicious dessert aromas wafting from my oven this time of year are just as enticing as the fresh air outside: sunny citrus, juicy strawberry rhubarb pie, puffy choux pastry, and fluffy angel food cake. Find some of my favorite spring dessert recipes on this page.
And if you’re craving something savory, try this herby rosemary focaccia.

Spring is also a wonderful time to use vanilla sugar in your baking because a lot of seasonal recipes include vanilla as the star ingredient. Have you tried this vanilla biscotti before? Vanilla perfection.
And if you’re thinking ahead, start some homemade vanilla extract now so that it’s more than ready for holiday gifting! I use it in many, many recipes.
