Happy 4th of July weekend to my friends here in the U.S. We're heading into a 3 day weekend, and I can't wait for the fireworks, food, and fun to start. We still haven't finalized our plans for the 4th, but one thing I do know- we'll be chowing down on good old American grub shortly. Independence Day and food just go hand in hand. I thought about making an apple pie, because nothing's more American than apple pie, right? But then I thought, cherries fit with the holiday theme too. After all, Washington did chop down that cherry tree. Thankfully, he didn't chop them all down, and there's an abundance of cherries at the grocers right now. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to scrap the pie idea and make a large cherry dessert that would please a crowd. So, I scoured Golden Blossom Honey and hit the jackpot with this Cherry Crisp dessert.
This old-fashioned cherry dessert is sweet, delicious, and perfect for a crowd. Served up warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, our Founding Fathers would have celebrated this dessert, I'm sure.
