DoubleOven: Cherry Pie for George

Posted on 21 February 2010

Today is George Washington's Birthday, hmm.....

. The first thing that comes to my mind is cherry pie, - Oh, and of course the American Revolution, ... and the Crossing of the Delaware, ...and the Father of our country...

but pie first!

    Rose, I think the trick is the almond extract – the recipe I adapted didn’t have it so I added it and all the kids love it. Never a slice left over!

    Looks great! I’ll take a slice! I love to cook and bake so I am taking down the recipe. I will let you know how it turned out. My mouth is already watering:)

    Remember the movie “Michael”? Loved that movie! In the movie they sing a song about pie!

    I have to laugh as when I first saw this picture my first thought was when we went to visit George’s home in Mount Vernon. And as we were walking up the steps and looking into George and Martha’s bedroom and they were saying they slept in that exact room…..well I was thinking that wasnt all they were doing in that room! You know….they were probably eating cherries too! Ha!

    I’m a voucher for the pie! It is really good. Its the only way that I will eat cherries!
