The Tassajara Bread Book for inspiration. What I found was recipe #100 Torte with Sourcream Fruit Topping. I did not infact have the required ingredients, but what I did was make my Grammie's shortcake recipe:
2C Flour 1/2t Salt
2T Sugar 1/2C Butter
3t Baking Powder 1 Egg
Mix the above together until just moistened, put in an 8x8 ungreased pan (pyrex works great!) cook for 15-18 minutes at 450 degrees.
I used the topping recipe with a substitution, there was no sourcream so I mixed ricotta with a square of cream cheese and some milk to thin it out. Then I mixed in the cherries I had pitted and halved.
It was yummy, the cheese topping was lighter than I thought, and I would recommend crushing the fruit. Also it was approved by both kids!
