Fruit desserts are good after dinner. But they're even better the next morning, pulled out of the fridge under a veil of plastic wrap, and eaten with a fork. Spring and summer are the times to put fruit in our desserts, and to eat pie for breakfast. So we're wondering:
What's your favorite fruit dessert? (Extra points to those who use words like pandowdy.)
Do you like neat, lattice-topped pies or messy slumps? Tell us in the comments!
Christina: Bananas Foster has always had my heart. But x2 on Amanda's pavlova.
Jennifer: Freshly baked blueberry pie -- served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream.
Sarah S: Blueberry buckle, which also happens to be my favorite fruit for breakfast.
Beatrice: Strawberry rhubarb napoleon with honey cardamom whipped cream filling!
Bryce: Peach pie. Sometimes with basil if I'm feeling fancy.
Sarah J: Lemon meringue pie. The only problem is that the meringue loses its oomph after day one -- all the more reason to eat it quickly!
Amanda Li: Mango shaved ice with condensed milk.
Maddy: Wild strawberry custard tartlet with meringue. I'm working to recreate the one I had in Italy, but need to find fingernail-size strawberries. (So maybe that's not the most appetizing description, but that's what size they were!)
