My Mom Cherry Jubilee Recipe

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

My mom die not write a lot of her direction down like I would but I can still figure most of them out with practice.  This one is good.

1/2 cup butter                                                 1 1/2 cup Conf sugar

2 eggs                                                               1/ 1/2 cup cherries

1/2 lb vanilla wafer                                          1 container cool whip

Cream butter and sugar until lite and fluffy, add eggs and beat  Crumble wafers and place 1/2 crumbs in 13 x 9 x2 in pan, spread mixture over crumbs, top with cherries, cover with cool whip, sprinkle rest of crumbs on top and chill and serve.         

She experience lots with recipes at the restaurant when they were slow or snowing out.

Will Hamm - I can't think of a single person who doesn't love something made with cherries. Your mother must have been great in the kitchen and regardless of whether she wrote things down or had a pantry, she stored things in her head with perfection. It must have been fun to be a kid with your mom.

How often do our mothers, grandmothers, aunts cook by sight? Attempting to replicate their special dishes is always a challenge. Looks yummy Will Hamm

Looks similar to something my mother called "strawberry fluff" as she used strawberries instead of cherries.
