Every other Friday, Yossy Arefi from Apt. 2B Baking Co. shares dessert projects that demand a little extra time and effort. Because your weekends should always be sweet.

Today: Bake your fruit into pies, layer it with cream, or tuck it into crumbles -- whatever you do, use it up until the last berry is gone.

Long summer nights mean more time for dessert -- time to let fruit bubble and to attack ice cream pints with spoons.

When it comes to marrying fruit and butter we turn to Yossy Arefi, whose Project Dessert recipes give us the nudge we need to try a lattice, or layer a trifle, or spend the rest of our paycheck on berries and then cloak them in pastry. To celebrate the first anniversary of her column, we’ve rounded up her greatest hits -- all featuring summer fruits -- that you should make while you still can.
