Instructions
 

  • For both of the cookie crumbles: blend all ingredients in a food processor until you have a coarse cookie crumble. Start with 1 tbsp of maple syrup and 1 tbsp of nut butter and adjust the ingredients after blending. For a more moist result add more syrup and/or nut butter.
  • Mix whipped cream and cherry jam.
  • Chop cherries and leave two for decoration.
  • Making the layers: first layer is the cookie crumble, next one is chopped cherries (and a spoonful of cherry jam if you like), then cherry cream. Repeat until you reach the end and decorate with piped cherry cream and a cherry on top.
