Rose, I think the trick is the almond extract – the recipe I adapted didn’t have it so I added it and all the kids love it. Never a slice left over!

Looks great! I’ll take a slice! I love to cook and bake so I am taking down the recipe. I will let you know how it turned out. My mouth is already watering:)

Remember the movie “Michael”? Loved that movie! In the movie they sing a song about pie!

I have to laugh as when I first saw this picture my first thought was when we went to visit George’s home in Mount Vernon. And as we were walking up the steps and looking into George and Martha’s bedroom and they were saying they slept in that exact room…..well I was thinking that wasnt all they were doing in that room! You know….they were probably eating cherries too! Ha!

As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, and no one brought more truth to that phrase than Santo Domingo Pueblo jewelry artisans. These masterpieces were made from whatever they could find.
