After reading about Tarts and Cookies at so many blogs this week – like All Things Beautiful and Almost Unschoolers to name a couple – I felt
inclined the Peer Pressure to pick up a can of Cherries for President’s Day.
I didn’t have cake mix, and Almost Unschoolers didn’t really sell me that it was the best recipe – just a great idea – All Things Beautiful would mean I’d have to make or buy Pie Dough – and I was feeling lazy so – Enter Pampered Chef Memories from the late 1990’s– Cherry Cheese Coffee Cake.
(I googled and found this recipe- http://www.razzledazzlerecipes.com/pampered-chef-recipes/cherry-cheese-coffee-cake.htm)
You use 12 of the crescent roll pieces to make the circle – so you will need 2 pkgs.
Make sure you use your Pampered Chef tools – supposedly it makes the food taste better, or at least that’s what my Pampered Chef Party Maker told me. . . . See my round stone by the way? It was one of the first things I purchased back in 1996?1997? I still use it every day.
Use the remaining pieces to put the top on, I fluted the edges and turned up the middle circle. My Pampered Chef Party Maker used to make every thing pretty. She inspires me.
Glad I took a before photo. The Crescent didn’t really bake to form . . .
The filling was so soft and airy – yum-o. Thanks blog moms who shared all of their President’s Day Cherry Dishes! I wish I could remember them all for a proper shout out!
Did you make a cherry dish?
The boys officially really like President’s Day.
Thank you Presidents Past and Present for standing for our country!
