Yesterday, my power came in the form of baking. Yes, even domesticity can be powerful! My mom and I followed through on our Cherry Pie-in-a-Jar plan and made 4 of these little guys. We had a little extra too and made one to taste for ourselves. Man, this recipe sure is dad tested and APPROVED! Those cherries explode like hot little bombs in your mouth. I can just imagine them dressed in camo and helmets screaming "bombs away!" (They're British cherries, dontcha know.)
The only thing we would change is the jars; it would have been much easier to stuff the crust in if they were short and fat rather than tall and skinny (guess they have 2 1/2-pint jar options...who woulda think). We plan to make another batch, but so far these soldiers were quite impressive!
