Our new kitty Ms. Cassie celebrated the 4th of July with a little red, white and blue sparkle!
She is a perpetual motion machine!
Last week I had a recipe that featured *blue*. This week, here's one of my favorite recipes featuring *red*. Add the ice cream and you have the white!
I love cherries and when fresh cherries aren't available, this hits the spot and it's easy.
An old recipe, probably from my mother. The paper is yellowing, but not falling apart yet!
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1 can (16 1/2 ounces) pitted dark sweet cherries, drained
3/4 cup Bisquick baking mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup firm margarine or butter
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix pie filling and cherries in ungreased square baking dish, 8x8x2 inches; spread evenly. Mix baking mix, nuts, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in margarine until crumbly; sprinkle over cherry mixture. Bake until brown, about 35 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired. 6 to 8 servings.
Substitute 4 cups sliced pared apples (about 4 medium) for both cans of cherries. Add 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg with the baking mix. Increase cinnamon to 1 teaspoon.
