Along with the Three Bean and Cherry Salad, I made a quick dessert. I made a stuffed cherry of sorts.
3/4 cup of cherries (finely chopped)
3/4 cup of confectionery sugar
1/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of vegan cream cheese
1 tablespoon of corn starch
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Take all the ingredients other than the 15 cherries an heat on low until the become a liquid. This should take about 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently to avoid burning. The mixture should be a thick dark purple color. Once the mixture is done, put in the freezer for 15 minutes and it should thicken up pretty well.
In the meantime, take 15 cherries, cut in half and remove the pits. Once the filling in cool in the freezer, begin to spoon it into the cherry halves and chill for 15 minutes.
It turned out to be a great potluck and there was many great dishes! I am looking forward to the next. Once I actually get a dinner table, I may try and host my own!
