As we wrap up July, we’re looking back at what a gorgeous month it’s been! July 4th kicked things off with a bang, beautiful weather brought couch potatoes outdoors, and National Ice Cream Month inspired us to create one really decadent dessert.
National Cheesecake Day on July 30th is the perfect way to round out the summer with a rich, creamy dessert that everyone can get on board with! Bake our Cheesecake Pie and give this day the recognition it deserves!
Go on! Let’s get baking!
We’re so over the April showers. Bring on the May flowers and dive into spring with Wholly Wholesome this month!

“If you don’t have the time or inclination to prepare a homemade pie crust, seek out a good-quality frozen or refrigerated crust. I tried Wholly Wholesome’s Organic Spelt Pie Shell while testing this recipe, and found that the flavor complemented the other ingredients nicely.”
Thanks Miri for the kind words! Everyone can enjoy this recipe at home with the ease of using Wholly Wholesome.

All Natural Recipes For: Cherry Pie with Oatmeal Streusel (Dairy or Pareve)
For the Pie:
1 Wholly Wholesome Organic Spelt Pie Shell, thawed
1 pound (about 4 cups) pitted sweet cherries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. granulated (instant) tapioca or tapioca starch
2 Tbsp. finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
Pinch of salt
For the Streusel Topping:
3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1/4 cup white whole wheat flour or regular all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp. cold unsalted butter or non-hydrogenated margarine, cut into small pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. In a large bowl, toss together the cherries, sugar, tapioca, crystallized ginger, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt. Mix just until the cherries are evenly coated with the other ingredients. Pour the cherry mixture into the Wholly Wholesome pie shell.
3. In the same bowl, mix the oats, flour, sugar, and cinnamon. With clean hands, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the butter is well incorporated and the mixture is crumbly. Top the pie evenly with the streusel mixture.
4. Place the pie on a parchment-lined baking sheet to catch drips. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the crust and streusel are golden and the filling is bubbly. Cool the pie in its baking dish on a rack. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Store leftover pie, well covered, in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Enjoy!
