After a few months of delicious but heavy dessert fare, we're craving some sweets lightened up with winter's fruit. The SE community didn't disappoint. Here's what you're making.

The jewel juice of blood oranges and the gelatinized crunch of chia seeds come together in this Le Pain Quotidien porridge. Fresh, cool, and perfect for summer.
We're creeping towards the end of prime citrus season but, before it's over, there are a few fruit you should definitely try. Because while there's nothing wrong with a navel orange, have you tried its rosy cousin, the cara cara? Ever wondered what a tangelo was? They're a cross between a tangerine and pomelo or grapefruit, and they're super sweet and juicy. (Plus they make a great pudding). See all 8 fruit right this way.
Even die hard clementine fans can get bored eating the fruit straight after a while, which is where this refreshing and creamy sorbet comes in. Plus, this dairy-free recipe goes from prep to finished product in less than an hour.
If the idea of cutting up whole lemons and using them (flesh, pith and peel), as a pie filling causes you to pucker involuntarily, then you're not alone. And yet, as caustic as they may sound, whole lemons, sliced very thin, are the main ingredient in a classic Shaker Lemon Pie, which, with the help of a good amount of sugar and some eggs, makes for a unique and totally delicious treat.
Every winter I look forward to the arrival of blood oranges at the market. This year I was rather impatient, popping in to my favorite produce place every few days to ask, "Are they here yet?" You see, I've been itching to make blood orange marmalade for months now, and I was beginning to worry it might not happen. But then this week, finally, there they were.
In the dark days of winter, we crave bright, tangy citrus to bring us out of our doldrums. These dessert recipes take advantage of flavorful orange zest and juice, segments, and even whole fruit whirred in a blender. Check out 10 delicious orange-based treats (and get the recipes) in the slideshow.
The goal of this recipe is simple: a pie that takes folks back to the kitschy nostalgia of an early bird special, that gets treated with all of the finesse and attention it deserves. No neon green fillings, jell-o jiggles, or metallic-tasting pre-squeezed juice allowed. The whole point of the dessert is to celebrate the bright, tangy taste of real key limes.
This New Year's Eve, I suggest you make this float: a tart, ripe grapefruit sorbet blooming with orange, lemon, and the subtlest whisper of gin. And I suggest you float it in Champagne (or one of these other lovely fizzy things). And I encourage a drizzle of pomegranate molasses, sweet and tart, rich but bracing, a hopeful portent of the year to come.
Candied citrus zest makes a beautiful, edible garnish for summer desserts by brightening up baked fruit and lending zing to fresh berries. It also makes a damn fine addition to cocktails, and is the secret ingredient in my rosemary lemonade cake.
What I love most about orangettes is the balance of bitter, citrus, and sweet flavors. Make no mistake, they definitely taste like candy, but it's a sophisticated sort of candy.
