Hello Dear Friends! Today is 3.14...so happy PI Day!!!
Ok, let's be clear on something. I am definitely not one to celebrate Math. As a matter of fact 6th grade Math and Science have recently become the bain of my very existence. Especially when John comes home from school and says "mom, I don't get this".... ugh. I think we should have a happy GOOGLE day because without my best friend GOOGLE I would not be able to help my child learn the 6th grade curriculum.
"Hey Google" is my new catchphrase! I am not even joking ; )
Anywhoo, I am one to celebrate PIE (the real pie!) so here's a new recipe I just tried yesterday. We actually ate this last night and thankfully there's still some leftover for tonight.
I can't wait for dessert time!
I picked up this recipe from Pinterest. It's called French Cherry Pie from a blog called Mom Endeavors. I chose to make it because this time of year I always crave cheesecake with cherries! Those flavors remind me of Springtime and Easter and that's what I'm feeling these days! I didn't feel like going through the whole process of making a cheesecake and besides...it's Pi Day.
On her blog Sara says this was her husband's grandmother's recipe and also her hubby's favorite. I can see why! It's also a no bake recipe and comes together super quick.
I don't know what makes this pie French, but regardless....I know it's DELICIOUS and super easy to make! I'm so glad I tried it!
There is still time for you to celebrate Pi Day if you want to whip this up today.
Here's how easy it is:
1 can cherry pie filling
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 8 oz. container of Cool Whip
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 graham cracker crust
With and electric mixer blend cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Fold in Cool Whip.
Spread onto crust.
Top with cherry filling : )
Refrigerate 3-4 hrs. before serving
John kept saying "this taste just like cheesecake!" and it totally did!
We'll take any excuse to have pie!
Even Math! : )
Next week is the first day of Spring! Can you believe it?!
I'm so ready!
Have a wonderful day, friends!
And please say an extra prayer for me as I guide John through converting fractions to decimals. And why so many world problems? I hate the word problems!!!
