The annual confluence of spring and Passover is pretty sweet—you want to celebrate with desserts to mark the occasion. These delicious ideas will have you and your Seder guests saying happy Pesach.

Note: Several of these do use butter and cream, so may not pass muster for a strict kosher table, but you can always substitute kosher ingredients like almond milk and coconut oil.
