Fresh Cherry Crisp / #FarmersMarketWeek

We are celebrating #FarmersMarketWeek this week, and today I am sharing an easy and delightful Fresh Cherry Crisp with you! I baked this tasty dessert in 4-8 ounce dessert bowls, topped them with whipped cream and put a cherry on top. Everyone loved them! I think you will too! 
 
 Fresh Cherry Crisp
(recipe serves 4)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 1/2 pounds Fresh Cherries
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
2-3 scrapes of Lemon Zest 

Topping

1/3 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
1/4 cup Rolled Oats
3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 tablespoon cold chopped Butter 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2-3 tablespoons Sugar
 
Wash your cherries. Pit each cherry. Slice each cherry into quarters.
Add the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest to the cherries and mix together.
In a separate bowl mix together the brown sugar, flour, rolled oats and cinnamon.
Add the chopped butter to the oatmeal mix.
 Add the cherries to the baking dishes.
Top each dish with the oatmeal topping. I like when there is a bit of the cherries showing around the edge, but if you prefer, sprinkle it all over to cover the cherries. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. If you use a larger baking dish, extend the baking time needed. While your crisp is baking, make the whipped cream by mixing together the heavy cream, and the sugar on high speed.
Pit a cherry for the top of each dish. Leave the stem on and use the cherry pitter so that the cherry comes out of the bottom, and the stem stays intact. Top the dish with the whipped cream, a cherry and serve. Enjoy!

Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes / #CupcakeLoversDay

Did you know that today is National Cupcake Lover's Day? It is, and I am celebrating with some blogger friends by sharing a tasty and fun list of cupcakes for you to make and enjoy! Of course, cupcakes are the perfect treat any day, and who can resist them? They are little bites of heaven, in a large variety of flavors and designs, and I am betting you will find your new favorite cupcake today! I baked these fun Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes for you. They are stuffed full of fresh cherries and topped with a dollop of cherry cream cheese frosting and some chocolate sprinkles!



Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes
( makes 1 dozen cupcakes)
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 pounds Fresh Cherries
2 cups all purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Butter
1 3/4 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
4 Egg Whites
1 1/3 cup Buttermilk

Frosting

1 3 ounce package Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 1/4 cups Confectioner's Sugar, sifted
Cherry Juice
12 additional Fresh Cherries, with stem left on


Remove the stem and the pit from each cherry. Chop the cherries into small pieces. Set aside.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the egg whites one at a time, beating after each addition, just until combined. Add the flour mix and the buttermilk alternately to the beaten mixture, using low speed.
Add 1 tablespoon of flour to the chopped cherries, and then add the cherries to the batter.
Add the batter to the cupcake cups.
Bake for 15-18 minutes in a 350 degree oven, then let cool on a cooling rack.
While you are letting the cupcakes cool, make the frosting. Mix together the cream cheese, softened butter, and vanilla until it is fluffy. Sift the confectioners sugar and then add it to the cream cheese mix, a little at a time, using low speed. Add cherry juice as needed to get the color you want.
Add a small dollop of frosting to the center of each cupcake. Sprinkle the frosting with a small amount of chocolate sprinkles, and place a fresh cherry with the stem still attached in the center of the frosting. If you want to pit these cherries, use a small knife to cut them at the bottom to remove the pit. Leave the stem attached.

Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars / #SundaySupper

Today we are having a picnic, and I brought these Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars! These bars are easy to make. They do take a little bit of time; but they are so worth it! Creamy, tasty, and full of chocolate and cherry flavor. They are a perfect dessert! They fit in at a picnic, a campout, a backyard party or anywhere you want to serve a fun dessert that everyone will love! 
Plan time to make this dessert. It has to be refrigerated for at least 3 hours after making it.  It can be refrigerated for several days if you wish to make it ahead of time!
 

Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 pound Fresh Cherries
1 cup Fresh Whipping Cream
2-3 tbl Confectioners Sugar
3 Cherry Yogurt Containers (6 oz. each)
Chocolate Graham Crackers
Chocolate Curls

 Wash the cherries, take the stems off, pit the cherries, and cut them in half. Place in refrigerator until needed.
Make whipped cream with the whipping cream, adding sugar as desired. I used fresh whipped cream, but pre made whipped cream will work also. Mix the whipped cream with the containers of cherry yogurt; just mixing with a spoon.
 Fit chocolate graham crackers onto the bottom of the pan, You can use any size pan for this recipe. I used a small one that is 6"x9". If you prefer to use a larger dish, adjust the amount of the ingredients to fit your pan. The graham crackers are easily cut with a serrated knife by "sawing" back and forth.
You will be making 3 layers, so divide your yogurt whipped cream mix accordingly. Place the first layer over the bottom layer of graham crackers.
 Add cherries, again keeping in mind that you will have three layers of cherries.
Add the second layer of graham crackers right on top of the cherries. Then spread a layer of the whipped cream yogurt mix on top. Add more cherries.
Add the final layer of the graham crackers when you are almost to the top of your pan. 
Add another layer of whipped cream and yogurt mix, and top with the cherry halves. Use a vegetable peeler to shave pieces of chocolate from the block of chocolate to the top layer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 3 hours. Check to see if the graham crackers have softened by sticking a toothpick in to several spots. The toothpick should go down through the crackers. Once it does, the bars are ready to be cut and served.
The bars should be kept refrigerated. The longer they are refrigerated, the better they taste and the softer the texture.
Serve right from the fridge!

Chocolate Cherry Crescents / #15 Minute Friday

It is 15 Minute Friday, and today we have some Chocolate Cherry Crescents to share. Made with fresh cherries and semi sweet chocolate, these are sure to become a favorite treat!
 Chocolate Cherry Crescents
(makes 8 crescents)
(printable recipe at end of post)
1 package regular Crescent Rolls
1 cup fresh Cherries
1/4 cup semi sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 tablespoon Milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

 Pit cherries and then chop the cherries in to quarters.
Unwrap the crescents and cut apart from each other. Add 1 tablespoon cherries across the bottom section of the crescent. Add a small amount of chocolate, like above, depending on your preference for chocolate.
Turn in both sides, and roll the crescent. All sides should be closed so nothing can leak out. Place crescents on baking sheet, bake according to package directions.
While crescents are baking, make glaze by adding milk to confectioners sugar. You can also use water instead of the milk.
Mix together until glaze is smooth.
Remove crescents from oven, let them cool. Drizzle with glaze.  
Let glaze set up. 
 



I tried to keep this to 15 minutes, but it may go over a little. You could use canned cherries and it would be quicker.  

Thank you for dropping by today! Enjoy!
