15 Delicious Cherry Desserts Your Family Will Love

When the weather grows warmer and the shelves start to fill up with fresh fruit, I start imagining all the things I can do with it.

Fresh cherries, besides being an amazing treat just as they are, always make me think of dessert.

And that's why I decided to put together this great collection of cherry desserts your family will love.

Luckily, many of these yummy cherry recipes use canned or dried cherries, so you don't have to wait for that brief summer cherry window to enjoy these delicious desserts.

Cherries are sweet and succulent, with an underlying tartness that makes them perfect for a wide variety of desserts, breakfast foods, and more.

Whether you are in the mood for a fresh, tasty scone, or seeking out the perfect dessert to share with your family for a special occasion, I've got you covered.

Did you know that cherries are related to roses? No wonder the things we make with cherries always look so beautiful!

Keep that in mind as you make your way through this list of delicious recipes.

Some of these treats are almost too pretty to eat, but let's not hold back. Because . . . cherries! Yum!
