I surfed, I baked, I ate. YUM! I think this recipe may be a keeper – tart cherries from Seaquist Orchards in Door County (I really wish their store had been open when we were last up ober by dere) and canned pineapple combined to make a surprisingly not too sweet bit of fruit-filled pastry. Actually, I think it could have benefited from a touch of ice cream, but in the interest of reporting results I had this slice for breakfast. I have no problem with martinis at 11:00 AM (while on vacation), but ice cream at breakfast just seems a bit too much like my college days. The ‘Crisco Method’ pastry was also wicked simple to put together and came out flaky and tasty – I may have to revisit my preferred butter crusts.
All in all, I am quite pleased to have this on hand to offer our guests this weekend – I think it’ll be a nice treat after tromping around the Milwaukee lakefront at Pridefest tomorrow.
In any event, dinner this evening is just us, so I’ll be cutting this recipe in half (except for the ‘shrooms – love the ‘shrooms). I’ll post the finished pics and our thoughts in the morning.
