Favorite New Recipe: Raw Cherry Pie

We asked Molly Siegler, our food editor, to share one of her favorite new recipes coming out of our test kitchen. 

Get the Recipe: Raw Cherry Pie

It’s cherry season! Unlike some of my other favorite fruits (apples and raspberries, for example), stone fruit isn’t available year-round. I love cherries so much, I can usually only bear to eat them raw, so this new five-ingredient Raw Cherry Pie is my new favorite way to dress them up a bit. You make a simple and delicious crust using dried apricots and sliced almonds, then pile the raw cherries (tossed with a bit of honey to make them shiny and add a little more of a filling-like texture to the mix) on top. The pie itself is gorgeous, but be prepared to scoop “slices” out or just reassemble the pieces as you cut and serve. 

As a classically trained chef with a political science degree, Molly puts her food fascination to work coordinating the creation and curation of recipes and other food-focused content for Whole Foods Market. Nothing excites Molly more than discovering a fun new food combination or tradition.
