Everyday Inspirations

cherry custard
I bought this big old bag of cherries and my hubby and I simple couldn't eat them all casually eating them. So, lest they go bad, I decided I needed to make a cherry delicious dessert! I just sort of winged it with what we had in the cupboard, but it turned out incredible. Enjoy!

{Cherry Custard Pie}

They are so pretty -- couldn't let them go to waste.
For the crust:

4 graham crackers
1 1/2 tablespoons Nutella
1 teaspoon butter

For the custard:
2 eggs
2/3 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
3 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
a couple cherries from the cherry mixture

For the cherries:
1 cup cherries, pitted and sliced in half
1 2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoon wine

Grind the graham crackers in a food processor or by hand (I used my Magic Bullet). Melt Nutella and butter and mix with graham cracker crumbs. Press into 4 small oven-safe containers (ramekins would be perfect). Reserve a few crumbs to sprinkle on top.

For the custard, beat eggs until fluffy, then mix in the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and cherries until blended. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Mix cherries with sugar and wine and saute in a pan on high until caramelized. 

Put cherries on top of crust and pour custard over the top. Sprinkle extra crumbs on top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Chill and serve.
