I love layered desserts. There is something great about sinking your teeth into a new layer with each bite. I had been wanting to incorporate cherries into a dessert all summer, so I decided to make cherry compote, layer it between vanilla ice cream and top it off with oatmeal crumble. This tasted like a cherry pie, but without the crust, it was delicious.
A Few Things: The cherry compote also pairs perfectly with Greek yogurt. Another idea is to top the yogurt with some granola for a healthy breakfast.
