30 Fruit Dessert Recipes for the End of Summer

August 6, 2017
A roundup of 30 fruit dessert recipes for pies, crisps, ice creams, cakes, and more to celebrate summer in all its glory!

Back in May I put together my first ever ¡Hola! Jalapeño Reader Survey (which you can still totally take so please take a second and let me know what you think!) and one of the things you guys are interested in seeing more of are Recipe Roundups!! Which is awesome, because there is nothing I like more than a good listicle, especially one involving recipes.

For my first roundup I gathered together some of my food influencer friends and asked them to share their favorite summer fruit dessert recipes. Crisps, crumbles, cobblers, and pies, I live for summer fruit desserts and with summer coming to a close I think we should all buckle down and pack in as many as we possibly can before Labor Day hits. Which are your favorites?
