If you’re eating clean, but love cherry pie, this Cherry Pie Filling will be a summer staple in your kitchen!
I love eating seasonally, especially when it comes to fruit. Even though things like tomatoes and strawberries are generally available year-round where I live, there is nothing like fresh, local juicy summer tomatoes or a bowl of sweet strawberries. Or ripe peaches that are so sweet and juicy they have to be eaten over the kitchen sink! And for me, sweet cherries are tops.
Eating cherries out of hand is my favorite way to get my cherry fix, but when they’re in season I usually buy way more than can just be eaten out of hand, so I look for new ways to use them. Why not cherry pie filling, right?
The uses for this sweet sauce don’t stop at pie filling though; it’s also great:
Dolloped on oatmeal (or noatmeal!) or yogurt.
Spread on toast, pancakes, crepes, waffles, or French toast.
Spooned on vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Or eaten with a spoon as-is.
I used this to make my Cherry Cobbler Cheesecake Bars, which I’ll be sharing the recipe for next week!Print
