Easter desserts - Your suggestions please!

I am having trouble deciding on an Easter dessert. I want it to be seasonal but somewhat economical. My daughter thought about lemon meringue pie, but I balked at the egg white amount when the grocery is only allowing two cartons of eggs. Please send your favorites and ideas, I need inspiration. :)

P.S. For seasonal, anything with rhubarb or rhubarb and strawberries.

Stephanie G -
Chocolate mousse made with avocado instead of whipped cream.
No particular Easter or spring connotations but main ingredients (cocoa powder, avocado, sugar) seem to be widely available even now.
Widely pleasing - almost everyone likes chocolate.
GF. Dairy-free before garnishing.
Flexible - plain or served with many choices - berries, praline, tuiles or other cookies, whipped cream, thick yogurt etc.
Easy - no baking. Mix and chill.
Many recipes out there, including I think one on this site.
Happy almost Easter!

Thanks Nancy! I love that re-iteration of chocolate mousse. I need to dig out my old recipe!

Lemon Budino. I think it only calls for 3 or 4 eggs(if that) it's SUPER easy to make! It's a criss between lemon meringue pie and cake. Epicurious has a FANTASTIC version.

Miss Karen, that sounds great too!

It's AMAZING. 100% of the reviews would make it again. Meyer Lemon Budino- Epicurious. Com
Budino is Italian for pudding. It's pudding on the bottom and cake on top. One bowl. One batter.

Hi Stephanie! I often swap in whipped cream where pie recipes tell me to make meringue, so maybe that could be a compromise? This pie has relatively few ingredients and is one of my all-time favorites: https://food52.com/recipes/29939-bill-smith-s-atlantic-beach-pie
