Cherries Dessert

 I honestly don’t know exactly where this recipe came from, my family has made it for Christmas and any holiday that involves the color red for forever. It could either be a recipe my grandmother made up, got from a friend, or it could be from Southern Living or another magazine; so, if it’s not an original recipe, please let me know and I will give the proper credit to whomever it is owed. But, this recipe is so delicious and easy I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you all. It’s serious addicting and so versatile; you can serve for a dinner dessert, holiday dessert, or even use it in lieu of a coffee cake to have with your morning cup of joe!
