Summer Baking Bucket List

It’s no secret that I love me some fruit dessert.  I’m talking pies, galettes, crostatas, cobblers, crisps.  I’m not talking fruit as dessert, because that is a totally different (and horrible) thing that should not even exist.  But I digress.

Every year, I put together a “Summer Bucket List,” full of things like going to Film on the Rocks, throwing a BBQ, reading X number of books and I might still make one of those lists, but for now, I’m focusing on the thing I’ve been dying to do all spring… bake lots of fruit desserts!  So without further adieu, the first ever Summer* Baking Bucket List!


Peach Tarragon Shortcake

Rhubarb Galettes with Hazelnut Frangipane

Rhubarb and Raspberry Crostata (check!)

Blueberry-Pecan Galette (check!)

Giant Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie (not actually a fruit dessert, but we’ll let it slide)

Blackberry-Cherry Cobbler with Honey Whipped Cream

Iron-Skillet Peach Crisp

Classic Chocolate Birthday Cake (also not fruit related, but it looks too good to pass up!)

Last, but not least… Betty Crocker’s Peach Cobbler (because you just gotta!)

Okay, this list is probably a bit ambitious (to say the least…).  In all reality, I’d be happy if I made just three of these this summer*.  Let’s do it!

*I know we’re still a month out from official summer, but it’s 75° today and I couldn’t wait any longer to publish this post!
