21 Strawberry Desserts That Will Perk Up Your Memorial Day Weekend!

/ Friday, May 24, 2013

Hello, lovely friends! What are your plans for the holiday weekend? I'd love to know! I'm not sure about you but I'm dying to get my strawberry-eatin' on. I haven't had any local strawberries yet this spring, so I'm planning to raid the farmers' market and cook/bake/snack-on as many as possible. I found these incredible strawberry dessert recipes whilst doing a little research this week. I'd love to share my favorites with you, if you're interested. Oo! Like this Limoncello Ricotta Cake with Strawberry Cream by the brilliant (brilliant!) A Better Happier St. Sebastian! How gorgeous is this whole spread? Oh, what I would do for white-brick walls...
If it were warmer, I'd go right for these Frozen Strawberries and Cream Bars by Everyday Food. I'm leaning towards these super gorgeous Wild Strawberry and Vanilla Creams by Emma of Poires au Chocolat, instead. Love those tiny wild strawberries!
I can't wait to try this Super-Southern Strawberry Cake by Hannah Messinger of Nothing But Delicious! I mean, the recipe name alone has me hooked. Traditional Southern Strawberry Cake is made with tons of sugar, Jell-O mix and frozen strawberries in syrup. Hannah gives it a little twist of her own...
This 3-ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream Cake by Real Simple could not be more simple to make! For something a little fancier, try these Mini Eclair with Strawberries and Cream from Martha Stewart Living.Love the idea of making Strawberry Tiramisu with lady finger, berries and mascarpone—this recipe by Junglefrog Cooking looks awesome! And for something a little less sweet, I'm really into this Strawberry Focaccia by Uno De Dos (it's in Spanish, so just pop the recipe into Google Translate). 

How dramatic do the berries look on this Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberries by Billy Law of A Table For Two!?

Whipped cream, strawberries and meringue cookies make this Strawberry Eton Mess by Taste Food Blog the perfect sweet-crunchy treat. I'm also drooling over this Strawberry Pie by StarvingChef.com—obsessed with how easy and rustic it looks!
I'll definitely be making this Buttermilk Pudding with Strawberry Coulis by Bird & Clever very soon (love this blog)!  

Strawberry-Pistachio Tart by Everyday Food makes such a visual statement (and it's frickin' delicious served with unsweetened whipped cream)! Also, these beautiful Strawberry Shortcakes by brilliant Michelle of Foodagraphy—yum!

Oo! This seems unique and incredibly tasty: Whiskey-Spiked Strawberry Tart by Bite These Goodies (LOVE this idea)!

Wish I had a doughnut pan so I could try these Baked Strawberry Doughnuts by Cooking Classy. Also, dainty Strawberry Mousse with Creme Patisserie cups from Cooking Melangery—so elegant!

The no-cook recipe for this Fuss-Free Strawberry Ice Cream by Hummingbird Bakery seems like a keeper!
Another recipe you'll have to pop into Google Translate (this time in Swedish!) for Strawberry Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting by Louise's Spis but it looks worth it! I'm dying to try this Strawberry Coconut Tart by the awesome-sauce blog, Carrol Luna. I love everything she creates, it's a problem...
Finally, for the classicists like me, New York–Style Cheesecake with Fresh Strawberry Topping by Brown Eyed Baker! 
Whatever you end up doing this Memorial Day Weekend, I hope it's wonderful. See you back here next week—let me know if you try any of these recipes xo Erin
