Today’s 10 Best is dedicated to my mom, the world’s biggest cherry lover. Every year for as long as I can remember, the moment that cherries hit peak-of-season, she heads to the grocery and picks up a big bag which she “accidentally” devours on the car ride home. As wonderful as they are eaten fresh out of hand, it would be a shame to let cherry season pass without making one of these spectacular desserts. Some are simple and a few are a little more time-intensive, but every single one of them would make a showstopping finale to a great summer meal. Since I couldn’t quite narrow down my favorites to the usual 10, we tacked on a few extras to add to the consideration set. So mom: take a scroll through these and choose your fave, but remember that you’re going to have to save a few handfuls for when you get home!

I’m in cherry heaven!
You know I don’t think I’ve ever tried a cherry I just have this idea in my head that I don’t like them. I really need to get over this and try one of these out!
