Bake a Second Batch: Smoked Cherry Bombs for the 4th of July

Randy Mayor

Stunning and unforgettable—a second set of this treat is a must.

Some flavor fireworks and fun surprises help light up the Fourth, and this whimsical dessert delivers. We free the main ingredient, maraschino cherries, from the cocktail garnish tray and flavor them with cherry wood smoke; then we wrap them with a creamy almond filling in buttery layers of phyllo. They're an easy potluck dish for beachside fireworks, park picnics, or your backyard barbecue—they can go anywhere, and they're make anyone who receives them feel just as special as they are.
