10 Deliciously Sweet Recipes for Cherry Pie Lovers

By Charlotte Smith

Cherry pie is, quite honestly, the only fruit pie I really enjoy, but saying I enjoy it is putting it mildly. If I could make my house always smell like a cherry pie is in the oven, I would in a heartbeat. And when fresh cherry season is gone, few things bring me more happiness than a slice of warm cherry pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I’m actually in the process of moving at the moment, and plan on making one of these when we’ve finished moving in to our new place, just to make it smell like home.

Let’s start with the cherries. Sure, canned cherry pie filling is delicious (especially when eaten straight out of the container with a spoon…), but if you manage to have a bunch of extra cherries at some point, why not try making your own pie filling? The writer even substitutes some of the water for a cherry liquor, and a Pinterest tip suggested using cherry brandy instead and subbing the lemon for lime.

The Best Cherry Pie Recipe Ever | The Artful Parent

If you’re going to claim you have the best cherry pie recipe ever, your recipe better match up. This gives you a recipe for homemade crust AND a homemade filling that called for cherries canned in water instead of syrup. Personally, I think combining this filling with the other filling might be the greatest joy-filled cherry coma imaginable.

Cherry Crumble Pie | Gal Meets Food

Here’s the deal: while the lattice top and crust top pies are definitely really pretty, there’s way more flavor with a crumble top – especially when it involves marzipan, or almond paste. Marie Antoinette loved marzipan, so this is pretty much the boujiest crumble top ever and now I have to make it.

Cream Cheese Cherry Pie Crumb Bars | Brown Eyed Baker

Part cheesecake, part cherry pie, part crumble, all delicious. It’s even got an icing drizzle, as if it weren’t already decadent enough.

Vanilla Bourbon Cherry-Blueberry Pie | Half Baked Harvest

If you think there’s any way I’m not making this for every Fourth of July from here until the day I die, then you my friend are gravely mistaken. Fresh cherries, fresh blueberries, vanilla beans, and BOURBON. I’m mopping up drool reading this recipe.

Slow Cooker Cherry Dump Cake | Cincy Shopper

Okay, it’s CAKE, not PIE. But I had to include something for all my cake peeps! All the delicious flavors of cherry pie without the actual pie part. Plus, it all just gets dumped in a slow cooker, and it doesn’t get much easier than that.

Cherry Clafoutis | Oh My Goodness Chocolate Desserts

This is seriously one of the easiest desserts to make EVER, but it sounds so stinkin’ fancy and looks so elegant that it fits even at the fanciest dinner tables. While it’s technically supposed to be served lukewarm to give it time to set, I usually can’t wait quite that long to have it because it just looks so good. I also highly recommend some kind of delicious, warm sauce to go with it – something like a hard sauce for bread pudding. It just makes it that much more amazing.

Crock Pot Cherry Pie Moonshine | Tammilee Tips

And finally, who can resist the absolutely lethally delicious combination of cherry pie and alcohol? There was actually a lovely older guy who worked at my college at the munchie marts (our nicknames for the on-campus convenience stores) who would tell us stories of he and his wife going to the mountains for their anniversary and drinking this, as well as eating the cherries. He always had a huge smile on his face when he talked about it, too. When I finally tried cherry pie moonshine, I was in love. I recommend letting it age in the jars for at least 24 hours to really let the flavors get happy.
