Cheery Cherry Desserts for Summer

A Sweet Summer Symphony

Ah, summer – the season of sunshine, pool parties, and an abundance of fresh, juicy fruits. And when it comes to summer’s star players, cherries hold a special place in our hearts (and stomachs). These ruby-red gems are the true scene-stealers, making us weak in the knees with their perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.

As Delish eloquently puts it, “These sweet cherry desserts 🎵taste so good make a grown man (or really, anyone) cry. 🎵” That’s the power of cherries for you – they have a way of eliciting pure joy and nostalgia with every bite.

So, if you’re a fellow cherry devotee like myself, you’ll be thrilled to know that I’ve scoured the internet for the most delectable, drool-worthy cherry desserts to grace your summer soirees. From classic cherry pies to innovative twists on old favorites, get ready to have your taste buds swept off their feet.

The Cherry Connoisseur’s Delight

Let’s start with the quintessential cherry dessert – the classic cherry pie. This sweet, flaky masterpiece is enough to bring a grown person to tears (in the best way, of course). And if you really want to elevate the experience, try my personal favorite – the cherry old-fashioned pie, which adds a delightful bourbon kick to the mix.

But pie isn’t the only way to satisfy your cherry cravings. For those of you who want to skip the crimping and rolling, may I present the cherry clafoutis – a custard-like treat that’s equal parts custardy and cakey. And if you’re in the mood for something a little more portable, the cherry bakewell cookies will transport you straight to the set of The Great British Bake Off.

Now, as any true cherry connoisseur knows, not all cherries are created equal. There’s the classic Bing, with its sweet-yet-acidic flavor and dark skin. Then there’s the Rainier, a showstopper with its beautiful rosy peach blush and subtly tart profile. And let’s not forget the Morello, the queen bee of the cherry family, perfectly suited for those jammy pies and preserves.

Cherries, Cherries Everywhere

But cherries aren’t just for pies and pastries – oh no, my friends. These versatile little gems can be incorporated into all sorts of summer treats. For instance, have you ever tried a Cherry Bomb Mimosa or a Cherry Sazerac? Trust me, they’re the perfect way to kick off any backyard bash.

And let’s not forget about those frozen treats. Spumoni ice cream cake, anyone? Or how about some good old-fashioned chocolate-covered cherries to satisfy your sweet tooth?

But wait, there’s more! What about a cherry cobbler with its buttery, buttermilk biscuit topping? Or maybe you’re in the mood for some muffin tin cherry pies – the perfect bite-sized indulgence.

And let’s not forget about those preserves! Cherry jam is a must-have in every well-stocked pantry, whether you’re topping toast, filling cookies, or layering a cake.

A Cherry-Fueled Summer Extravaganza

With all these tempting cherry-based delights at your fingertips, your summer just got a whole lot sweeter. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a basket of those ruby-red beauties and get baking, mixing, and indulging. Your taste buds (and your guests) will thank you.
