The Best Cherry Pie In Door County: Bea’s Ho

What started as a dairy farm on a family homestead owned since 1884, Bea’s went through several iterations across generations, and eventually evolved into one of our favorite pie baking sites in the county!

Back in the ’60s, Bea’s young daughter began selling cherries and her grandmother’s jams from a picnic table on their dairy farm. When product sold out quickly , the family realized they had found a new venture.

We’ve been to Bea’s several times, each time with different people, all of whom have tried other pies in the county, and all of whom have declared Bea’s in their Top Two list. The traditional lard crust combined with the simplicity of cherries cooked-down with only sugar and flour make this unassuming pie a nearly unanimous favorite!

Why I Love This Cherry Pie Recipe

Cherry pie had never been my thing until we went to Door County for the weekend a few years and had some as dessert with our fish boil.

It turns out, the majority of the cherries grown in Door County, Wisconsin which is about an hour north of us are Montmorency cherries, and that means theyre sour.

The combination of the tart cherry flavor combined with the sweetness of the sugar in the homemade filling makes for an amazing pie. Add some flaky vegan pie crust, and you have a perfect dairy free dessert.

Ingredient note: for this recipe I used cherries from this orchard that I found in my grocers freezer section. If you cant find Door County cherries near you, feel free to swap them out for another type of sour or tart cherries. You can also use sweet cherries if you want.

Faqs And Tips For Making The Best Cherry Pie

How do you keep a cherry pie crust from getting soggy?

You can keep a crust from getting soggy by doing a few things. First, make sure youre not rolling it to thick or too thin. Second, switch to a metal pie plate to get a better cook. Third, you can bake your pie on a lower rack to get the bottom crust crisper. Lastly, make sure youre properly venting your top crust to allow steam to escape.

Does cherry pie need to be refrigerated?

No. Cherry pie doesnt need to be refrigerated, but it will only last about 2 days at room temperature . To extend the life of the pie, place it in the fridge for 3 5 days.

What cherries are good for pie?

Sour or tart cherries, such as Montmorency cherries, are the best for pie because their flavor balance the sweetness of the sugar in cherry pie filling. To make this recipe easier, Ive used frozen pitted cherries, but you can also use fresh pitted sour cherries.

Can I use canned cherries instead of fresh?

While I havent tested this recipe with canned cherries, you should easily be able to use canned cherries instead of fresh or frozen, just make sure you drain and rinse off any liquid that they might be stored in.

How long can you keep a pie in the fridge?

A properly stored, baked cherry pie should last in the fridge for about 5 days. Always use your best judgment before consuming anything.

How To Make Sour Cherry Pie

Make the crust. Combine flour, sugar, salt and chilled shortening in a food processor. Process until a crumb forms and then slowly pour in 1/4 1/2 cup of ice water until a dough forms.

Divide the dough into two equal balls and flatten into discs. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Make the filling. Combine the filling ingredients in a large saucepan. Heat over medium until a sauce begins to form. Continue cooking, stirring until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Assemble the pie. Roll out 1 of the pie crusts and line your pie plate. Add the filling, leaving out any excess liquid.

There should be some sauce, but since the cherries may vary in water content, you might not want to use all the sauce. Use your best judgment and see the photo above.

Top with a second pie crust. You can do a lattice crust if you want, but its not necessary. Seal the edges and cut a few holes to vent the steam. You can use a knife, a fork or a small cookie cutter, whatever you feel like doing.

Bake the pie. Brush the top crust with an egg wash and pop your pie into the oven at 375F oven for 45 55 minutes.

The pie should be bubbling and the crust will be golden brown when its ready.

Let the pie rest. Remove it from the oven and let it sit until it reaches room temperature. This step is important to achieving a pie that doesnt flop when you slice it. It gives the cornstarch and the pectin in the fruit time to set.

Search For The Best Cherry Pie

Cherries are synonymous with Door County. As you travel up and down and across the Door Peninsula you will be hard pressed not to pass a cherry tree orchard. In late July and early August cherries are ripe and ready to be harvested. Cherry tree branches are dotted red with ripe fruit and even look a little like Christmas trees decorated with bright, little ruby red ornaments.

Falcon Orchard Cherry Trees

In August of 2014, my family and I stopped in for lunch at the Cornerstone Pub in Baileys Harbor and started talking to our server. We learned that working at the Cornerstone was his part time job and he was a local farmer, and his wife was a dairy farmer. As we talked he shared a few stories about the different produce he was growing, he leaned in a little closer as to tell us a secret, there was a wonderful baker in the area that made the best cherry pies and the pub had one fresh baked pie left, did we want it? We bought the pie, stopped and got some vanilla ice cream, and brought the pie and the ice cream back to the condo for later. The pie was wonderful and we enjoyed a piece after sunset for the next three days.

Cornerstone Pub, Baileys Harbor

Since then we have purchased several pies including one from Woods Market, Sweetie Pies, The Cherry Pit, and Grandma Tommys. All of them good but our first pie from the Cornerstone Pub will always remain our perfect cherry pie.

Third Choice For Cherry Pie In Door County: Schartner’s Farm Market

Door County Cherries History

We voted Schartner’s pie crust “the most authentically like Grandma’s” – and that’s a good thing because Grandma makes amazing pie!

The crust has nice, somewhat thinner and clearly visible layers layers which almost, but not quite, flake apart. The filling holds shape well, showcasing full, round cherries. They have an expected sweetness but with a fun, subtle zing of sharp tartness.

This is solidly good cherry pie that anyone would appreciate, cherry pie lover or not.
