Valentine Dessert And a Free Local Event...

Need a recipe for February 14th?  Here ya go...
Gotta love recipes with cherry pie filling! 
This is how it appeared before going into the oven...
This is my donation for a Valentine event at the
 antique mall where I sell. 
Unfortunately -  I forgot to take a picture of the after.  
All I had left were the few pieces, above, which had fallen apart!  
It should look something like this...

Ziegler's in the Country will be hosting a free Valentine Tea 
(meaning tasty goodies and booth sales throughout the mall) 
this weekend on Feb. 9th - 1-4 pm.  So if you are near
south central PA - you might want to check it out.
