Cherry Sunday....

I have a very old and very tall Cherry tree in the back corner of my yard. It is impossible for me to get a decent harvest of cherries unless I rented a cherry picker, which I am not going to do any time soon,. But today I actually climbed up onto the roof of my garage and harvested about 2 cups of nice ripe cherries...




I was going to make a Cherry Pie, but then I found a Cherry Pudding recipe in The Willing Worker's Cookbook, a great collection of recipe's from the Lower Skippack Mennonite Church of Creamery, Pa. dated 1961. This was a cinch to make. The only ingredients were 4 cups Flour,3 Eggs,1 3/4 cups Sugar,1 pint Milk,3/4 cup Butter,3 tsp. Baking Powder, and 2 cups of Cherries. Baked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. I made it in two dishes; one for me and one for my neighbor.
