Do your spring recipes need a little inspiration? To liven up seasonal gatherings, look to simple dishes with flavorful variations that will surprise the palate for everyone's favorite course - dessert.

"I like to choose an easy dessert with creative twists that can carry me through the season," says Mary Beth Harrington, a McCormick Kitchens flavor and baking expert, "That way, when it's time to celebrate - whether I'm playing host to a large party or bringing a dessert to a spring gathering - I never have to wonder what I'm making, and I never serve the same dish twice."

Lemon Cheesecake Bars are Mary Beth's sweet inspiration for the season. A classic spring flavor, lemon adds a unique twist to simple cheesecake bars, making them a refreshing hit for all ages. For a new take, substitute the lemon extract with other seasonal tastes, like fragrant orange or fruity raspberry extracts. And, for a special garnish, top the cheesecake with a fresh berry topping, which can be personalized with your favorite blend of berries and a touch of vanilla extract.
