11 Iconic Summer Desserts

By • August 16, 2013 • 0 Comments

When it's fall, winter, or spring, we long for summer. We dream of those warm nights where it stays light outside until 10pm. We yearn for the crunch of our first sweet ear of fresh corn. We want to feel the kiss of sunlight on our skin at all hours. And we crave the bubbling, fruity, crispy desserts that are so typical of summer. When we envision summer, we picture these. Sweets that celebrate the season's juicy treasures are iconic in their own right. Summer may be coming to an end, but it's not over until the last peach falls, so grab one (or five) and try a recipe from below.
