17 Desserts We Love Berry Much

We'll never tire of eating berries by the handful—really, never. And between you and me, they often don't even make it home from the farmers market without being devoured. Those poor blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries—they never knew what was coming, all snug in their cardboard baskets. But, sometimes, you're blessed with a glut of summer fruit or exercise extreme self-control and think, "Yes, these berries would make a perfect pie, milkshake, or shortcake." Here are 17 berry desserts we love berry—er, very—much.
