I bought some dried cherries...Any recommended recipes for baking with them?

    Pair with center cut pork chops in a port-cherry reduction glaze.

      My favorite things are pecan & dried cherry scones
      and a refreshing Orzo Salad with pinon nuts, dried cherries, basil and balsamic vinegar dressing

        I use them in scones also, with crystallized ginger.
        Good in biscotti with almonds.

          Ditto. This is my favorite way to use dried cherries, besides eat them.

          I like them in corn muffins or cream of wheat bread/muffins.

          Also, nice with rack of lamb deglazed w/cassis.

            There is a fantastic recipe in Ken Haedrich's Apple Pie Perfect cookbook for sour cherry apple pie with cardamom. It is a great combination.

            I haven't been able to keep them around long enough to bake with them - I've been eating them as a parfait with yogurt & granola........ delicious!!!

              I have two favorite recipes using dried cherries.

              The first one is by Martha Stewart from 1999. These are wonderful cookies. http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.fc77a0dbc44dd1611e3bf410b5900aa0/?vgnextoid=7e65cf4e11b0f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=tori's%20cookies&rsc=ns2006_m1

              The second one is from Sara Moulton and is her Dried Fruit Cream Scones and I use dried cherries instead of the dried apricots the recipe calls for. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recip...
