It may not feel like spring in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere (definitely not here in New York), but we are past the official start date of March 20. In Greek mythology, this means Persephone, the kidnapped daughter of Demeter, Goddess of the Harvest, comes back to spend time with her mother. I imagine they would devour any of these sweet, flavorful desserts with the fury of 1000 tart rhubarb stalks.

Finicky climate patterns may delay some of these spring, and further on, summer, ingredients from showing up at your farmers markets, but they will show up—and when they do, have these recipes handy. Until then, let these photos provide fodder for your daydreams and get you excited for the things ahead (pastels! thinner scarves! taking that sad desk lunch outdoors! summer!). As Pablo Neruda said: "You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep the spring from coming."
