Spring has arrived in full force, even here in Newfoundland! The trees finally have leafed out, tulips are blooming and the grass is finally turning from gold to green.
One of the best things about late spring and early summer is the availability of fresh sweet cherries. I look forward to them every year.
I’ve also featured plenty of cherry recipe ideas over the years. Today I’m gathering together 25 of the best, in a collection of sweet, and a few savoury, recipes.
These recipes are all you’ll need to celebrate the best of cherry season. In practically all these recipes, frozen cherries are easily substituted to enjoy at any time of year. I know I almost always have frozen cherries on hand.
You’ll want to as well, when you try just a few of these delicious recipes. Enjoy!

A roundup of our favourite sweet and savoury recipes just in time for cherry season. Let's put those beautiful summer fresh cherries to good use!
Cherry Cheesecake Scones. Fantastically delicious, indulgent scones with plump cherries and chunks of both vanilla cheesecake and white chocolate baked inside. A perfect addition to a Mother's Day or Easter brunch.
Cherry Vanilla Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze - a most vanilla scratch cake baked on top of sweet dark cherries then glazed with cream cheese frosting. Delicious at a celebration brunch but good enough to serve as a decadent dessert too, especially while still warm.
Beautifully light vanilla and almond flavored muffins with ripe cherries at the center and a topping of crispy, buttery graham cracker crumb streusel. Delicious, impressive, and probably much easier than you think to prepare.
Slightly sweet and a little tangy, this oven roasted jam also gets a fruity and peppery note from some crushed pink peppercorns for a nicely balanced combination that compliments the creamy goat cheese beautifully.
Easy Cherry Peach Turnovers - use ready made, store bought, puff pasty to quickly put these easy turnovers together for a weekend brunch or even to serve warm with ice cream as a delicious summer dessert.
Plus you’ll see daily recipe suggestions from decadent desserts to quick delicious weekday meals too.
