Desserts for Cherry Lovers

cherry blossom trees Nothing says summertime the way that a sweet, ripe, juicy cherry does!  From the delight of eating them straight off the tree to their place in salads and meat marinades, cherries are a versatile fruit — and we think that they taste best infused in our array of delicious desserts.  We were fortunate to be introduced to cherries at a very young age because of the abundance of cherry orchards in the great lakes.  In this area, cherries were brought to the United States by French colonists from Normandy, who planted the trees along the Saint Lawrence River and along the Great Lakes.  In Wisconsin, and Door County in particular, the temperate climate, shallow, rocky soil and insulation to late frosts due to its proximity to Lake Michigan, led to plentiful cherry crops.  And lots of delicious, fresh cherry desserts!

Whether you prefer pairing it with our light and crispy Kringle pastry, warmed in a cherry pie, or with a drizzling of chocolate, you can enjoy this fine, slightly tart fruit flavor with our wide selection of desserts for cherry lovers.

Cherry Kringle

Danish Cherry Bread Pudding

Black Forest Coffee Cake

Inspired by the world-famous Black Forest cake, we take our made-from-scratch cherry filling and pair it with rich dark chocolate to fill our Kirschwasser (cherry brandy)-soaked pastry.  We then garnish our Black Forest Coffee Cake with buttery streusel and sweet icing to create one of the best cherry desserts available.  It’s great with coffee and great company.

Wisconsin Kringle

Cherry Cheese Kringle

Desserts made with cherries always taste yummy when we pair them with velvety smooth Wisconsin cream cheese, top them with streusel and drizzle them with icing.  That is exactly what we have done with our Cherry Cheese Kringle, a mouthwatering dessert that will have you reaching for another slice.  This reminds us of a combination of a cherry cheesecake and cherry cobbler, which is a pretty fine duo indeed.

Gluten-Free and Special Diet Desserts

For a no added salt or sugar dessert, we have adjusted our pastry recipe slightly to meet your needs while still delivering a light, tender and flaky Kringle bursting with our tasty cherry filling.  You can also enjoy our sweet Danish Rolls, which look just as good as they taste with their spiral shape and fruit-filled center.

Our Gluten Free Trinity Layer cake is another must-try dessert for cherry lovers.  We start with a silky-smooth cheesecake and layer it with a generous serving of our delicious Wisconsin filling of tart Door County cherries and cranberries.  We then layer it with our soft and moist gluten-free cake before covering it with frosting and placing a cherry on top.
