FAQs About Fruit in Dessert

Which of these recipes is best to bake when it’s hot outside?

I recommend no-bake pies such as the fresh strawberry pie or the nectarine pie. The filling is cooked in the microwave, but there’s no need to turn on your oven. However, they will need refrigeration.

Another idea: The Easy Vanilla Posset with lemon must be cooked on the stove for a few minutes. Then it goes into the refrigerator. It’s as refreshing as ice cream but a lot less trouble.

Which of these desserts can I store at room temperature?

Most fruits need to be stored in the refrigerator after baking. In this collection, the blackberry cobbler will keep the longest without chilling since there are no eggs. This would make a good dessert to carry to a picnic or reunion.

What is the easiest dessert for fresh fruit?

I vote for a bowl of yogurt covered with fresh fruit. Whipped cream or granola is optional.
