Cherry Surprise

We had a bbq Monday. Labor Day and my son-in-law cooked steaks, corn on the cob, baked potatoes, salad and he asked me to make a dessert.  I had been out running most of the day, had to do the Sam's run, was out of flour...eeee gads can't have that!  :)  We also stopped by to see my friend Patsy, she had surgery on her hand Thursday and she was really not feeling well.  So back to the dessert.  I have wanted to try the puff pasty shells so what better time than today since I was in a crunch.  I bought some cherry pie filling and doctored it up.  I added some sugar about 1/4 of a cup and 1/4 cup of red drinking wine and 1 tsp. of almond extract.  I cooked the cherries until the sauce reduced.  I baked the shells, cut the tops off and pushed the inside around so I could fill them.  I then topped them with whipped cream (real whipped cream)....don't they look delish.

 The puff pastry look great don't ya think.  And boy are they yummy.

My youngest grandson AJ doesn't always like desserts, but he told me he wants me to make this for his birthday (which isn't until April  ;)  )He had two so guess they were pretty good.  I think kids can be a good test for foods (sometimes)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.  Tomorrow is AJ's first football game.  Speaking of which I have a picture to share of Jake, my grandson, in his football uniform.

They were very yummy I must say. I'm so glad I have people to feed all these things to. Wish you were closer. ;) Guess I can bring some with me next time I come for a visit, or we can make some.
