Cherries in the Snow

Pat Duran


This is one of those recipes you can make when there is little time and you have unexpected guests for the weekend. This also makes a great dessert for holiday buffet; and this can be made by using any canned pie -filling- I have made it with pineapple pie filling and blueberry; both turned out great.
