Sweet Cherries Romanoff

Grace Pulley


I love anything cherry and wait anxiously every year for cherry picking season and the opportunity to make this recipe with fresh cherries. Dark red ripe plump gorgeous jewels served with a tangy topping...can you say Delish??

Of course you can use frozen or canned in the off season but nothing beats the sensation of biting into a crisp, plump, juicy, gem (cherry).

The perfect elegant end to any meal.
