“This recipe comes from Shelley Sinko, who baked at Magnolia for many years. It’s based on a cookie that her mom made when she was growing up.”(p. 73)
Today’s my birthday!!!! Why am I not baking a cake? Someone else has that chore today. This is such a simple recipe. I knew I needed something simple and easy after missing a week of baking. Let’s take a look at it.
Let’s have a closer look!
TWO LITTLE DETOURS: First, I have used a can of dark cherries in syrup instead of “cherry pie filling” as called for in the recipe. Just couldn’t find the right stuff at the grocers when I was there. Well, not too bad a deal. I cooked the dark cherries a bit and added some corn starch to thicken the syrup. I believe it did nicely. The second little detour I made has been in applying the confectioners sugar at the end. I didn’t sprinkle it or sift it over the top of the squares. I filled each little cherry well with 1/4 teaspoon of the sugar. See?
Where will this treat land today? (We’ll see whose reading this blog.) High School Science department and IB French Year 2 students.
Have a sweet day!
