Memorial Day Desserts

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Please allow me to begin with a huge, heartfelt thank you to all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country and to their families for their service. On this special day, we honor those service men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. They are truly the greatest of American heroes and we love you!

As we pay tribute on this Memorial Day, we definitely need some sort of dessert. Right?

Simple Memorial Day desserts that are easy and delicious! Cake, pie, ice cream, and cobbler, the favorite desserts for Memorial Day celebrations and the unofficial kickoff to summer.

Apple Pie. It just doesn’t get any more traditional than apple pie. This double crust version uses a medley of apples for what I think is the perfect flavor of an apple pie.

Pavlova Recipe

Pavlova. So simple to make, a pavlova topped with fresh berries in red and blue makes a beautiful dessert for the special occasion. Light and airy, pavlova certainly makes one of my most favorite desserts.
