Cherry pie is one of the most famed American desserts. Usually made with tart (sour) cherries, this dessert was first brought to the States by English settlers, who originally used the crusts to hold the filling during the baking process, rather than to eat. If you eat a lot of cherries, it’s worth buying a cherry stoner to make short work (you can also use it to stone olives).
Vegan Cherry Pie Bars (Ambitious Kitchen) are made with oat flour and sweetened with maple syrup. This recipe uses frozen Montmorency tart cherries for the filling.
Four Berry Pie Bars (Crowded Kitchen) use cherries for this classic Michigan recipe alongside your choice of other fruits (berries or peaches are good).
Forest Fruits Chocolate Tart (Addicted to Dates) takes the cherry pie in a different direction, with this recipe by a talented Irish baker. Here the baked chocolate crust is topped with a sweet cherry raspberry jelly and creamy chocolate ganache.
