These popsicles are made with frozen red sweet pitted cherries. If you have a Costco near you, check out the Townsend Farms Organic Frozen Cherries–they work great in all kinds of recipes. To create these beauties, make a simple syrup from sugar, water and corn syrup. Next, cook sugar, cornstarch, salt, egg yolks and sour cream to make a vanilla pudding. Finally, quickly pulse the cherries, almond extract and simple sugar in a food processor and mix the puree into the pudding. Freeze for a minimum of four hours. Recipe and photo via Oven and Apron.
