Cherry Cheese Surprise

Crock Pot Gourmet for the Frantic Chef #14

Cherry Cheese Surprise with plain yogurt

You will need:

24 corn tortillas
1 (21oz) can cherry pie filling
1 (12 oz) bag frozen, pitted sweet cherries
2 eggs
24 oz. cottage cheese
1/2 c. sugar (optional)

Grease crock pot with cooking oil spray.

In large mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs and cherries. (As I was making this for breakfast, and I don't like to start my day with too much sugar, I didn't sweeten the mixture. If, however, you plan to serve this as a dessert, you may want to add 1/2 c. sugar to the filling.)
Spread a thin layer of the cherry/cheese mixture in the bottom of your 5-quart crock pot.
Layer 4 corn tortillas on top.

Spread a generous scoop of the filling onto the tortillas.

Repeat layers until you've used all of the tortillas, ending with the cherry/cheese mixture.
(If desired, sprinkle 2 Tbsp. sugar on top.)
Cook on low for approximately 5 hours.
Serve warm or chilled. Either as-is:
Or with a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt:
