It’s summer—and you know what that means. Strawberries are finally in season and they're ready to be picked and eaten!

This luscious fruit can be used in pretty much any type of recipe, sweet or savory, but they really show their versatility in all kinds of desserts. From a tart topped with strawberries and strawberry cheesecakes to no-churn banana split ice cream and even pizza, the desserts collected here are the perfect addition to any fun summer celebration or family gathering. Best of all, many of these strawberry desserts come together in under a half hour, which means less time in the kitchen and more time kicking back with friends. Give these berry-good recipes as a try, and prepare yourself for the compliments that will come your way!

A tip: When you're buying strawberries, look for fruit that's firm and lightly fragrant, without obvious white rings around the stems (that means the berries aren't ripe).
