"Farm Journal's Best-Ever Recipes", seen below.
I've written about the vintage Farm Journal cookbooks a number of times before, as they contain some of our family's all-time favorite recipes that Mother used when we were growing up.
If I should decide to make it again, I would buy two cans and weigh out 24 ounces to use, which is what the recipe calls for.
But I'd probably make a pie instead! And I would use canned cherries, rather than cherry pie filling.
It's funny - I think I must have had this - and liked it so much - at the time, that I wanted the recipe. But I think my taste has changed over the years. There's another old recipe that I used to LOVE when I was younger, it was a cherry cream cheese pie, made with "ReaLemon" brand juice, I think, and cream cheese and maybe sweetened condensed milk. I don't think I'd like that any more, either. It sounds kind of weird to me, now.
So much so that I don't even think I'd want to bother trying it again - why make something you don't think you will like?
That wouldn't stop me from trying it if somebody ELSE made it, though, LOL!
(Please don't let my musings keep you from trying today's recipe, if you think it sounds good! The Farm Journal recipes are, by and large, very, VERY good.)
Try it, you might like it!
