Dried Cherry Recipes

Double Cherry Pie
The holidays would not be complete without at least one cherry pie.

4 cups frozen unsweetened tart cherries
1 cup dried tart cherries
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca or cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Pastry for 2-crust, 9-inch pie
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter

  • Combine frozen cherries, dried cherries, granulated sugar, tapioca and almond extract in a large mixing bowl; mix well. (It is not necessary to thaw cherries before using.)
  • Let cherry mixture stand 15 minutes.
  • Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry; fill with cherry mixture. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Dot with butter.
  • Make a lattice top out of the remaining pastry. Seal and flute edge.
  • Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven about 1 hour, or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. If necessary, cover edge of crust with aluminum foil to prevent over browning.

Makes 8 servings.

Note: 2 (16-ounce) cans unsweetened tart cherries, well drained, can be substituted for frozen tart cherries. Dried cherries are available from us.
