morrello cherry and icing

Have you tried Trader Joe’s morrello cherries? If not, you should probably head to your nearest TJ’s and get a jar. They are yummerific! I used the juice from the jar to make icing for a scone recipe using the cherries and this morning I put it in the om of the day. How sweet is that?


1 C cooked oatmeal
2 T morrello cherry icing
1/4 C morrello cherries

Directions: To make the cherry icing I mixed a little bit of powdered sugar with the juice from the container of cherries. I just put a little in at a time until the consistency and color are to my liking…
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

mOMent: Life is just a bowl of cherries…what does that even mean?
