Got cherry pie filling to use? Here’s 10+ Cherry Pie Filling Desserts with recipes including mini pies, big pies, turnovers, ice cream, and more!
Of all the fruit pie fillings out there, cherry would have to be my favorite.
There’s something special about eating those juicy plump red cherries.
I go cherry picking almost every summer at a local fruit farm. 2021 is the exception because the farm had a really bad crop with hardly any cherries to pick.
Because I usually have 5 pounds of cherries to eat, I have plenty of cherry recipes.
One thing they have in common? I almost always make a cherry pie filling. It’s simply the best.
That’s why I’m bringing you this list of Cherry Pie Filling Desserts. Over 10 recipes using cherry pie filling, including mini pies, big pies, turnovers, ice cream, cupcakes, and more!
These cherry pie filling desserts can made with both homemade and canned cherry pie filling. Baker’s choice.
Once upon a time, I used to be really ambitious and make everything from scratch, including homemade cherry pie filling.
However, as I got older I realized sometimes you need a break. If I’m using pie filling as a topping (especially when it’s not fresh cherry season), I’ll buy canned cherry pie filling.
Whether you’re pressed for time or feeling ambitious, here are over 10 recipes using cherry pie filling (canned or homemade).
Can you eat canned pie filling out of the can?
Yes, you can eat canned pie filling out of the can without prior cooking. It’s precooked when canned, so it’s safe to eat.
How long does opened cherry pie filling last in the fridge?
Whether you’re using canned cherry pie filling or homemade, it will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
If using canned, make sure you transfer leftovers to a covered storage container. Do not store directly in the can.
