Bread Mixes from The Prepared Pantry

This is for Sharon, who in the 9/15 newsletter shared her recipe for Sour Cream Cherry Pie. I was not clear whether the cherries are from a can or if they were fresh. The instructions say to drain the cherries, which I assume means they are from a can, but please clarify.

For Athena DE I apologize for forgetting that you could not use breakfast cookie recipes that included peanut butter. You clearly stated that and for some reason, even though I read it, it did not register when I was looking through my recipes. A friend often substitutes cream cheese for peanut butter in recipes, but I have never tried that.

Patti V said she remembered an old recipe they called "stacked pork chops" where they put onion, tomato and green pepper on top of pork chops and baked them. That reminded me of something we ate at home as kids. My mother used to make what she called "Swiss steak" and it was the same thing. I don't know what cut of steak she used. but she would take a piece of steak and top it with a slice of tomato, green pepper ring and a slice on onion, add a little water and bake it in the oven.
Thanks for the memories.

Robbie IN thought the streusel ingredients was missing the the Impossible French Apple Pie I posted in the September 13th newsletter, but I checked and it is there under the ingredients and baking directions for the pie. It's 1 cup Bisquick baking mix, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1/3 cup packed brown sugar and 3 tbsp. firm butter. Mix streusel mixture until crumbly.
