Cherries and pies

 Tomorrow evening we are off for a meal with our friends.  I have been making Cherry Frangipani today with a redcurrant and cherry topping  for desert.  I haven't made this before so before inflicting it on others I needed to try it,eat it.
The Frangipani has Armangnac and almonds.  The pastry base has some semolina for a more crunch and it was jolly good.

Cherries from the trees in the orchard. It's been a bumper year for cherries and they are ripe earlier than usual. It has confused the birds who are normally our prime raiders.

  1. Jane, I am a new visitor to your blog and found your blog through a comment you left on Loriann's blog. It is so nice to be able to view France through your photos and your paintings. Looks like a wonderful life.
