I like to throw it in the crock pot sometime a cinnamon stick or a tsp (not with the sherry) actually I useually don't have sherry on hand so I add a little bit of brown sugar peaches just what ever. We eat in on bread pudding over vanilla ice cream a little cup by itself over french toast. I just like that I can sneak in a lot of fiber with the appricots and prunes (my kids would never eat prunes alone) Read More

Perfect! My grandmother used to make a version of this every year for Christmas breakfast. I've been looking for a similar recipe for a while now. This is it. It's a favorite of mine and has been for a long time. Learn from my mistake though: I was doubling this recipe (as I often do) and decided that I would use one can of cherry pie filling as the recipe calls for and one can of just plain bing cherries for tartness. Not a good idea. It was a little too tart that way. So follow this one closely. Read More

Interesting. Followed recipe exactly. Spooned the warm mix over slices of pound cake and topped with whipped cream. Pretty good. I don't think I'd eat it by itself as a side dish though. Read More

This is incredible! I took it to a luncheon for my girlfriends and they all raved about it. I used sugar free pie filling but it had just the right amount of sweetness. Read More

This is very good. I made it to top my oatmeal in the morning and it was tasty. My parents loved it all on it's own. I omitted the sherry and didn't miss it. Next time I might omit the nuts too. Read More

It tastes great but the color was mostly brown except for the apricots. I used cherries that were not dyed so their color didn't stand out. I like it with unsweetened yogurt. I cut the apricots and prunes into 3 strips to allow for more of a mix in a bit used cream sherry that I had on hand and since it is such a sweet dish used Morello cherries in light juice instead of pie cherries and since I had that juice I omitted the water. I would not omit the almonds as they complement the sherry. Read More
