HAPPY CHERRY DAY!

Happy Cherry Day! I mean President’s Day. As kids we always knew that on Washington’s Birthday (February 22nd) we would have a cherry treat. We would also hear the story of how George Washington could not tell a lie and told his father that he chopped down the cherry tree.
Grandma would fix cherry cobbler or pie, or if she was running short on time cherry dumplings. I decided to try a recipe from a little cookbook I found in her recipe box called “Say it with Dessert” from Betty Crocker’s Bisquick Cookbook.

I made it yesterday. It was delicious and so simple! So even though you may be snowed in today, if you have a can of cherry pie filling and some Bisquick you can celebrate President’s day with a sweet treat!

CHERRY CRUNCH
2 cups of Bisquick
2/3 cup sugar
¾ teaspoon of cinnamon
1 egg
½ cup shortening
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling

1. Mix all the ingredients except pie filling.
2. Pat 2/3 of the dough in greased square pan, 9x9x2 inches (mine wasn’t exactly square). Spread pie filling over dough in pan. Crumble remaining dough over pie filling.
3. Bake about 30 minutes. Serve warm.

If you are bored on this cold, snowy day, here’s a link to an article in the Farmer’s Almanac with some odd facts about some of our past presidents. http://farmersalmanac.com/blog/2009/02/01/hail-to-the-bizarre-weird-presidential-trivia/
