Best fruit desserts

Are you a fruit dessert person or a chocolate dessert person? Over here, Alex is the fruit dessert person and I’m the chocoholic. But the older I get, the more I appreciate the subtlety and nuanced flavors that fruit desserts have to offer. Also, there’s something so special about the fruit of the season: like desserts you only make for a few weeks per year.

That’s the case with our Award Winning Peach Pie, a creamy, custardy pie featuring the juiciest ripe peaches the season has to offer. I grew up eating this pie, and my family idolizes it. Why? It’s so special to us because it’s only made a few times a year. But on those occasions? Pure heavenly peaches and cream bliss.

The fruit desserts in this list range from healthy desserts to total indulgences. Our strawberry crisp has vegan and gluten free options and is naturally sweet using maple syrup. And in contrast that award winning peach pie has all the butter, flour, and cream and is a total indulgence.
