Sour Cherries - Danish Cherry Vlaai

On Sunday the kids and I went to pick strawberries and as luck would have it, the sour cherries were ready too.  My friend Kathryn has a cherry tree and in years past, I pick at her house.  Unfortunately, her tree didn't really produce last year so I felt like I had to seize the moment and pick cherries right away.

Ugh, my camera was blurry!

Usually I just freeze the cherries and then over the year, dehydrate them to put in my granola.  I found a recipe for something called Danish Cherry Vlaai.  It's a sweet yeast dough, put in a tart pan and topped with sugared cherries and baked for 30 min.

The rest of the cherries I put on a tray and froze.
