For the past four years my mother-in-law Linda and I have gone to the Taste of Home Cooking Show. It is something that I look forward to every year. They cook around 8 recipes and then at the end of the show they draw names and whoever wins gets to take home the recipe and a nice piece of serveware . They also auction off a bunch of other prizes such as cookbooks and cookware. I really enjoy the Taste of Home recipes because they are all submitted by home cooks and then the test kitchen cooks them and decides which ones go in the magazines and cookbooks. So you always know they are going to turn out good. This year we upgraded our tickets to the VIP section, so not only did we get to sit in the
front, but we also got a free cookbook as well. I was really excited about this cookbook because I have been seeing it adverstised a lot. I have already marked several recipes to make in this book but I decided on the one to feature for this cookbook to be Cherry Crisp. Cherry crisp reminds me of eating school lunch because it was one of my favorite desserts that we got. Cherry crisp and when they put frosting in between two graham crackers. Those were the days!
This recipe was super easy. It is made in the microwave so dessert was ready in T minus 10 minutes...gotta love that!The only thing I would change for the next time I make this would be to use less sugar. I felt like it was a little too sweet. But other than that it was very close to the cherry crisp from my childhood days!
