Rosie Makes Mama Hawthorne's "Things."


When I was a little girl,
Mama Hawthorne would make these frozen treats.
I loved them.
 She poured hers into 12 paper-lined muffin tins.
I'll be using my new popsicle molds and popsicle bags.
Mama would always try to hide them,
but I would always find them
and eat about 6 of the little cupcakes in one sitting.

I always called them those "things."
When I found Mama Hawthorne's handwritten recipes,
in her careful penmanship,
I learned they were "frozen fruit salads."

 Mama Hawthorne's Things
 2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 TB lemon juice
8 oz. crushed pineapple, drained
4 TB chopped maraschino cherries
Optional:  3/4 cup crushed pecans
Mix all together.
Pour into 12 paper-lined muffin tins
or into popsicle molds or bags.

These are my favorites.
Popsicle condoms!

You won't believe how good these are.
Another Trust Rosie moment.
