Almond Cherry Crisp and Other Sweet Cherry Recipes

June 26, 2014

I can't wait for cherry season.  This special time of year means an unlimited number of cherry pies, crisps, cakes, ice cream and more.  Typically, the season runs from late May through the end of June which means that it goes by in a blink of an eye.  Take advantage of this petite stone fruit and make these mouthwatering sweet treats.

Chocolate Cherry Mousse Cake
Recipe from Baking After Dark

Cherries and chocolate have been friends for a long time and come together beautifully in this silky mousse cake.  Layers of decadent chocolate cake sandwich creamy cherry mousse which are smothered in a rich chocolate ganache.

Cherry Nutella Blondies
Recipe from Nicky's Kitchen Sanctuary

Cherry pie filling and chocolate hazelnut spread are swirled into blondie batter for a quick and easy dessert.  These bars only take 25 minutes to bake and can be stored up to 5 days in an air tight container.

Cherry Galette
Recipe from Confections of a Foodie Bride

Galette is just a fancy French term for a free formed pie.  Plump bing cherries and merlot come together to create a deep red pie filling that's to die for.  Serve your galette with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an even more decadent bite. 

Almond Cherry Crisp
Recipe from Sift and Whisk

These individual almond cherry crisps are a great seasonal dessert to serve at parties.  Amaretto liquor is used in the cherry filling to accentuate the flavor of the raw almonds in the crumble topping.  This crisp is delicious with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or ice cream.
