Happy Birthday, George!
We cannot tell a lie–these 5-star cherry dessert recipes taste as good as they look.
In the 1730s, it's rumored that the great father of our country, George Washington, couldn't lie to his father and admitted chopping down the family's cherished cherry tree. What better way to celebrate Washington's birthday on February 22 than to indulge in a few delectable desserts (such as Cherry-Almond Cake, left) made from the felled fruit. It may be lost to history whether Washington actually chopped down that tree, but it's no lie that these cherry recipes are guaranteed to please.
