I created this recipe to star two of my favorite cooking ingredients from my "summer place" It's both Cherry country and Maple Syrup Country. The original recipe called for Pecans, but I added Almonds because I think Almonds and Cherries taste great together. TBoth versions a wonderful for breakfast served topped with plain or vanilla yogurt. Sweetened with a dab of honey if you wish.
