This day was bittersweet. One of our most favorite and beloved teachers, Mrs. Stephanie Thyer, has decided to move to Australia. Our special little community planned a picnic, at a local park and the turn out was impressive.
I wanted to make something that would feed a crowd. I decided to make something from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook
. I have not always been successful, nor particularly like what I have made, but wanted to try it, none the less.
As I have mentioned before, I love anything with cherries in it. This sounded really good and somewhat easy. This was like a cross between a bar and a cake.
After pouring the batter into the prepared pan, you score it in order to place the cherries. Kind of makes sense!
Eli gave this dessert a 10+!
Although, Eli, never had Stephanie as a teacher, they have a special bond. Stephanie and Eli's 5th grade teacher, Melissa, are the best of friends. Their two classes did everything together; work, play and fun! Eli is super sad and each day, looks off in to space and mutters to me, "I am going to miss Mrs. Thyer". He and I may have to plan a trip down under!
