Sandy Coughlin of Reluctant Entertainer created a delicious dessert recipe that’s perfect for Cherry-Oh!® Cherries and can just as easily be made with peaches or pears. Enjoy!
I love a summer dessert made with large, sweet cherries, a dessert that you can swap out with other fresh fruit in season, such as peaches or pears. My recipe today is the essence of summer and perfect for dinner party guests. Plump Cherry-Oh!® Cherries, combined with a biscuit topping in individual ramekins, caused our guests to swoon and rave. They wanted to know more about the fruit!
Harry & David® Cherry-Oh!® Cherries are handpicked at the peak of ripeness from a handful of small Pacific Northwest orchards where the climate, soil, and plentiful water make for ideal growing conditions. They are carefully packed onsite and delivered straight to your door, ripe and ready to eat on arrival.
Three ways to enjoy cherries:
Pit and add to Greek yogurt with honey and nuts.
Enjoy as a snack with wine or cheese, or pair with chocolate for dessert.
Add to a summer dessert recipe, such as a galette, tart, compote, crisp, or cobbler.
The secret to cooking with cherries for a cobbler is to bake them in the oven for about 12 minutes before you add the biscuit or cobbler topping. Another spin is to use brown sugar instead of white, giving the dessert a richer flavor.
Lastly, nearly any fruit can be used for a cobbler, and the juicier it is, the better, which makes peaches and pears perfect for this recipe. Serve with heavy whipped cream or a premium vanilla ice cream, and your guests will be back for seconds.
