Cherry Recipes in Honor of Our First President, George Washington

Bring some history into your kitchen. Get the kids in the kitchen to help you bake some cherry treats. As you work together, talk to them about the early history of our country and our first President George Washington. This can lead to even more talks about our history. Don't leave it to the schools to teach your children the history of their country. Unfortunately, many of today's textbook don't even have the correct facts in them. Let your kids learn from you as you build up our country in their eyes. Most kids like to bake cookies and these Chocolate Cherry Cookies would be a good project for you as they are simple and made from a cake mix. And they are diabetic amiable so even the diabetic children (of all ages) can enjoy them. Or you can use a quarterly chocolate cake mix for quarterly cookies. Tiny Cherry Cheesecakes are also a tasty option and they are also diabetic friendly. however they, too, can be made quarterly by replacing the Equal with sugar. These tiny cheesecakes have a chocolate crust and who doesn't love chocolate and cherries together? And speaking of chocolate, how about some Oh-So-Easy Cherry Brownies?
