Rainier Cherry Pie Bites


The Chocolate Covered Cherry Whiskey Infusion Recipe


Decadent and sweet, but with a hint of tart, this infusion drinks beautifully on its own as an aperitif, or mixed in as the base of a dessert cocktail. Try adding an ounce of Godiva white chocolate liqueur, and an ounce of heavy cream, shaken and poured over ice. Read more about The Best Whiskey Infusions You Can Make.


  • 1 quart of bourbon whiskey
  • 1 cup of whole cherries
  • ½ cup of cocoa nibs
  • 1 vanilla bean, split


Leave half your cherries whole including stems. Pit and halve the other half of the cherries. Put the cocoa nibs in the bottom of a clean Mason jar, and top with the cherries. Fill to the top with bourbon, add the vanilla bean, and let sit in a cool, dark spot for two weeks to a month. Shake every few days, and taste until you feel like it’s done. Remove cherries, and reserve them for garnish or as a kicked-up sundae topping. Strain the bourbon through a fine mesh strainer, and then again through a coffee filter. Reserve the cherries in another whiskey filled jar.

Easy Maraschino Cherry Pie

This recipe is one I’ve made. Cherries are probably my favorite food, overall, and when I saw this recipe, I had to make it. My boyfriend, on the other hand, really dislikes cherries. A lot. But there was no way I could NOT make this. So I did and my boyfriend, very kindly, cut himself the tiniest sliver of pie. Because I made it, he wanted to try it. And he said he liked it. The next day, when he got home from work, he said, “I couldn’t stop thinking about that cherry pie today; I’m going to get a real piece today.” And he did. So…if you like or don’t like cherries, this is still the recipe for you. On top of that, it isn’t expensive and it’s super simple to make.
