    Epi Curious's Note:

    From The Wickwood Inn in Saugatuk, MI, owned & operated by Julee Rosso (of The Silver Palate fame)...this contains buttery croissants, toasted almonds and Grand Marnier. This is prepared the day before and it's such a wonderful way to greet Christmas morning!

      Someone gave me this recipe ages ago, and I didn't realize it was on here. I have no contact with this person, and really wanted to find my copy of this recipe, and decided to check here, and I'm thrilled. This is excellent. The cherries are a "must", but I did omit the almonds and it was just as good. So so glad I found this again.
