Since this is such a fond memory and we’ve never had cherries at home in California, I was so happy to find them for only $1.99/lb. at my local grocery store last week. But instead of savoring them as a snack, I was envisioning a baked breakfast treat with warm Bing cherry compote…
This compote, made with a hint of orange juice, sugar and cornstarch, was a cinch to whip up. After it was wrapped in squares of puff pastry dough, popped in the oven and ready to eat, these turnovers were pure bliss in a baked good.
Only, as soon as the turnovers were baked and eaten, as were most of my leftover cherries, I realized I was almost fresh out. And now that I am fresh out, it’s time to go to the store and get some more! Only this time, they’ll be for snacking.
