How To

A Cherry A Day

It’s National Cherry Pie Day and we celebrate the delicious heritage around this favorite fruit. According to the American Pie Council although pies, themselves, have been around for centuries, we can thank Queen Elizabeth I for the first cherry pie. The tradition was then brought to America by British settlers.

Below are some of our favorite cherry pie recipes, and, for fun, some cherry-inspired recipes that aren’t so straightforward! Before you get started, click here for a helpful infographic from our friends at Northwest Cherries on the benefits of cooking with cherries.
