Rainier Cherry Pastry

Rainier Cherry Pastry is a perfect way to use up those in-season cherries! If you’ve never tried Rainiers – get thee to the store RIGHT NOW because they won’t be around long. They are my FAVORITE fruit, and a big reason why I LOVE the Pacific Northwest. This dessert is super easy. The hardest part is pitting the cherries, and if you have a tool to do that it is a breeze.

This recipe is sandwiched on either side of a generous portion of vanilla ice cream. I didn’t make this batch, because I don’t have an ice cream maker! Can you believe it? I’ve been hunting for one for several summers now, but just haven’t pulled the trigger yet.

This pastry ends up really juicy. You are going to want to scoop all of that up and spoon it over your ice cream.
