Easter Desserts FAQ
What are some traditional Easter desserts?
What Easter desserts can you make ahead of time?
The good news is that most of the dessert recipes on this list can be made ahead of time (to varying degrees). Cookies, bars, and tarts can typically be made up to a couple days ahead of time if needed. The cakes and pies can generally be made the day before.
Check individual recipes for more information about storage and tips for making ahead of time.
What are the best desserts for a large crowd?
I always make multiple desserts on holidays to make sure there is enough for everyone. A mix of pies, cakes, cookies, and other options means everyone can choose their favorite, instead of worrying about having enough of one thing for everyone.
That being said, I think some tasty Easter cookies are the easiest thing to make if you have a lot of guests. You can make A LOT of cookies relatively easily, plus you can make them well ahead of time.
Bars are another good option (lemon bars, pecan bars) because they can be cut into any size in order to feed more people.
