6 Quick Easter Desserts to Try This Year

Like most holidays, Easter is a day to indulge in delicious food and yummy treats. Most hosts focus their time and efforts on the main course of Easter dinner, and not as much on the dessert. Dessert can take a while to make and when you don’t have all day, it gets pushed aside and replaced with something store-bought instead. For this reason, I’ve put together a list of desserts that are quick and easy to make and that your guests will love. If you still don’t feel like making them, ask your guests to make them instead and offer a prize to whoever makes the best dessert.

1. Easter Egg Cookies

These cookies are based loosely on a Greek Easter speciality. Use egg-shaped cookie cutters to create the Easter “eggs” and then enlist the kids to decorate the cookies. You can use many different types of decorations and colours and the kids will love doing it.

2. Apricot-Coconut Cake

Coconut anything is delicious any time of year so why not use Easter as yet another excuse? This Apricot-Coconut Cake is delicious and easy to make. If you’re a lover of coconut, you will love this and your guests will love it as well. It’s a great combination of fruit and coconut that is a pleasure to the palette.

3. Lemon Bars

These deliciously tart treats work great as a dessert or as an appetizer for your guests to munch on while you’re adding the finishing touches to your Easter dinner. They’re easy to make and the creamy, tart filling will leave you wanting more.

4. Mini Almond Cupcakes

This is yet another dessert that kids will love to decorate. They’re as cute as they are delicious, and they only take 45 minutes from start to finish. Feel free to go wild in choosing colours for the icing and add a variety of festive shades to add some colour to your table.

5. Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie is my personal favourite dessert of all time. It’s coconut-y, it’s creamy, and it’s pie; what more could anyone want? I make this pie for any and all holidays of the year and Easter is no exception. It’s a bit of a calorie bomb so I’ve included the slightly lighter version of the recipe, but for the wild children of the world, here’s the regular recipe as well. Kids love this pie, adults love this pie, and your grandma will be impressed with this pie as well. I promise, you won’t be putting away leftovers of this pie.

6. Just for the Adults: Gingery Banana Pudding with Bourbon Cream

This classic southern American style dessert offers adults a boozy finish for the end of the day. It is topped with a bourbon cream, and gingersnaps stand in for traditional vanilla wafers. So for the parents who have put their sugar-crashed kids to bed or the adults who are about to crash themselves, this bourbon pudding will be our little secret.
