Delicious desserts

Try these tasty, family-approved recipes from Lisa's Kitchen!
  • Double cherry pie

    Cherry pie is good any way you slice it, but this recipe has something special. It uses both fresh (or frozen) and dried cherries. The result is a pie that is both sweet and tart, and the combination of the two types of cherries gives it an interesting texture unlike most cherry pies. This one is definitely a crowd-pleaser!<br><a href="http://www.livingthecountrylife.com/blogs/lisas-kitchen/2010/02/18/doubl... target="new">Get the recipe >></a><br>
