Fresh cherries! I love making cherry pie with fresh cherries. The filling is so gooey and delicious, and it’s easy to make. Individual desserts are always fun, too. I made these in my Le Creuset mini cocottes, but you could make these in any large ramekins. If your ramekins are smaller, this recipe might yield more than 4 servings. I used the stoneware mini cocottes for these, but they also make cast iron versions.
