Cherry Cranberry Pie

Cherry Cranberry Pie

Around Thanksgiving, I start to incorporate a lot of cranberries into my baking. While they’re available frozen all year long, they can be found fresh this time of year – and relatively inexpensively, as well. The sweet-tart berries have a flavor that tastes great in everything from homemade cranberry sauce to cranberry muffins, and a bright red color that makes baked goods look unusually festive. ...

Mini Cherry Swirl Cheesecakes

Mini Cherry Swirl Cheesecakes

My favorite cheesecakes are usually mini cheesecakes. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a big, rich slice of a full sized cheesecake every now and then, but I find that I get a better crust-to-filling ratio with mini cheesecakes. Mini cheesecakes are also quick to bake and easy to serve, so they’re a much better choice for spur-of-the-moment baking than full sized cheesecakes are. These ... Read More »

Cherrymat Cherry Pitter

Cherrymat Cherry Pitter

Fresh cherries are absolutely delicious, but their pits are not. It can be very time consuming and messy to pit a pile of cherries. It can be done by hand and without special tools when you only need a small quantity of cherries to do, but when you’re planning to bake a couple of pies, cobblers or even cakes, it is well-worth having a cherry ...

Skillet Berry Crisp

Skillet Berry Cobbler

Fruit cobblers and crisps are low maintenence desserts where fruit can be the star of the show. I make them year-round using frozen fruit, but I make them a little bit more often during the summer when my kitchen is well-stocked with fresh fruits and berries. The only drawback to fruit crisp is that it is a dessert that needs to be baked in the ... Read More »

Homemade Cherry Cobbler Ice Cream

Cherry Cobbler Ice Cream

Several weeks ago, I took a trip out to Michigan to visit a cherry farm, eat some cherries and create a my own ice cream flavor. It’s hard to say what the best part of the trip was, but as much as I love cherries, I would have to lean towards creating my own ice cream flavor – Apricot & Dulce De Leche Swirl, which ...

Homemade Cherry Popsicles

Cherry Popsicles

Bright red cherry popsicles were always my favorite when I was a kid. I loved their sweetness and they way that they dyed my lips and tongue bright red as I ate them. Over the years, I lost interest in having my tongue dyed bright red for hours at a time and I stopped eating the popsicles. It was just as well because a cherry ... Read More »

How to pit cherries without a cherry pitter

Pitted Cherries

When you are working with fresh cherries, it is necessary to remove their pits before you can safely put them into a recipe. There are traditionalists who say that you get more flavor when you cook the cherries with the pits still inside (“traditional” cherry clafouti are notorious for this), but anyone who has unexpectedly chomped down on a cherry pit in a pie or ...
