Looking for a sweet treat that only requires a couple of ingredients and is quick and easy to serve?
At the Smith House, we love a sweet treat after dinner. My husband claims I’ve spoiled my boys to expect it, but I’m actually the one who loves a little something sweet after our meal to enjoy with my final cup of coffee for the day.
Most times, our desserts are nothing fancy. However, whether it’s a simple cookie from a package or a warm slice of pie straight from the oven, my desserts LOOK as if they’ve been prepared in a gourmet kitchen by some fancy chef somewhere.
My secret? Presentation.
I always serve up our dessert in a colorful bowl or on a fancy plate.
At our house, desserts create great memories. And it’s just too easy to grab a cute dish to make those special moments a festive event.
Cherry Bites Recipe
So here’s one that’s SUPER EASY and only requires 2 ingredients–yep, just 2 little ingredients you probably already have tucked away somewhere.
You can make these with any pie filling flavor you want, but since I’m a huge cherry flavor fan, the cherry pie filling is usually my pick. I also bake them in both a muffin pan for bigger bites or a mini muffin pan for a fun teeny treat.
The ones you see in the picture are actually ones I made with the leftover dough. That’s right. Use all the dough and don’t waste a bite! After cutting out the circles, I just roll the leftovers together and cut a couple more. For some reason, my boys like these better. Who knew?
Either way, my boys like them topped with a little whipped cream and my husband likes to warm his over a cup of ice cream.
Anyway you serve them, they’re wonderful.
It’s just another easy way to serve up a little something to make your daily meal a little special.
