Cherry Heart Pastries

   Cherry-Hearts-PastriesHi KokiDoo Friends,

how are You? It seems that our last Citrus Cake has partially worked with the weather here in Sweden. Sun showed up consistently in the last few days. Vitamin D come to me, yes! Still a bit of rain and of course cold but we are getting there. If I think that I have the entire summer season ahead of me, I feel like cheering!

So, let’s continue to stimulate the good weather with a new tasty, fruity, sweet dessert! My idea was to make something with summer or late spring fruits. So I went to the supermarket and looked around in the fruit department. Mmm, cherries! Gorgeous, very big, juicy, black wild cherries! Here in Sweden we have most of the fruits all year long. For example, we had watermelon through all the winter.

Cherry-Heart-Bite-2Anyway, I decided to buy those great cherries and bake KokiDoo’s “Cherry Heart Pastries”. This nice dessert is very good to look at, both the outside heart shape and the inside jammy filling. Cherry Heart Pastries have a crispy shell filled with a thick, rewarding, flavory cherry jam. What are You waiting for? They are so easy to bake! Prepare to feel a very intense cherry taste that will make You close Your eyes thinking at nothing else than enjoy Your sweet moment. The texture is just very pleasant with the outside shell meeting the thick cherry jam. The good thing with this dessert is that it doesn’t fall apart when You bite it, the consistency is just perfect! Did I mentioned that those Cherry Heart Pastries are damn good? I think I pretty much did 🙂

Before we can have a look to the recipe of these Cherry dreams, I would like to Thanks a lot Tamara from the US that sent us a beautiful photo of her, her grand daughter and the last KokiDoo’s dessert cake (Sunshine Citrus Cake). She baked the cake for the birthday of her very cute 2-years old grand daughter and it looked delicious. I am so glad we contributed to a little girl happiness!
