This collection of Knott’s Berry Farm desserts are made with delicious fresh berries and berry preserves from Knott’s Berry Farm.
The first time I went to Knott’s Berry Farm was in 1964. We went a couple times a year when I was a kid. Every time the out-of-town cousins would visit, my dad would pile us into his Cadillac and drive us to Buena Park. I remember panning for gold and riding the mules.
There were always miners in costume. Or, at least the miner’s bench for a photo opportunity!
We’d finish up the day with a chicken dinner. I confess, that I haven’t been to Knott’s since my oldest daughter, (now 19) was 6 months old! When I went recently with my youngest daughter, I got pretty excited, and started digging through my photo albums for pictures of my family. A flood of memories rushed through me, of my brother and me panning for gold, riding mules and sitting on the miner’s laps for a photo “op”.
I’m looking forward to showing my 13 year old, the same things I saw when I was her age, and discovering new adventures with her. I can’t wait to sit on the lap of the same miner, whose lap I sat when I was 4 or 8 and 12, and 34. Mr. Knott is famous for developing the Boysenberry, and Knott’s is famous for their berry jams.
Here are some of my favorite Knott’s Berry Farm berry desserts.
Lemon Posset with fresh raspberries, is creamy, cool, and light. Perfect summer dessert!
Summer Pudding, a classic British dessert, is full of fresh berries.
Raspberry Trifle is an incredibly easy dessert to make, and it always makes a beautiful presentation.
Gluten Free Berry Crumbles are a family favorite. The gluten-free oat topping is my favorite part.
Strawberry Fool is a mousse-like dessert, filled with fresh strawberry puree.
I hope you enjoy these berry desserts, made with Knott’s Berry Farm berry preserves!
