When I was a child and spent much of time at my grandma’s, there have been NULL issues (among infinite others) that have been a constant: a box of Entenmann’s within the kitchen, and a espresso hotter crammed to the brim sat at the eating room desk all day. The espresso was mainly for my grandma and huge aunt – they might generally replenish their espresso cups during the day.
The Entenmann’s, however, was there simply in case a neighbor occurred to cease via someday during the day. More usually than not, I (along with my sister and cousins) have been joyful to take pleasure in a pastry or two. My grandma all the time offered the danish-style pastries with the cream cheese filling and fruit on top.
Since the nice and cozy climate hit, I’ve been considering about doing a few sort of bar with cherries but couldn’t choose precisely what I needed to make. Then, sooner or later I had a flashback of sitting at my grandma’s eating room table, espresso hotter at the table, and taking slice after slice of certainly one of these danishes. I decided to make a crumb-style bar that emulated these nostalgic danishes.
I began with the crumb recipe used within the blueberry crumb bars from final summer, and par baked the backside crust. Then, I further a easy sweetened cream cheese layer, topped it with cherry pie filling, and crumbled the rest crumb combination on top. Baked till golden brown, after which a easy drizzle of a powdered sugar glaze.
These. Are. Fabulous. The crumb crust and topping is crunchier and extra reliable than its danish counterpart, however the combination of flavors makes me really experience like I’m sitting at my grandma’s eating room table. And honestly? There was via no means a higher region to be.
