It needs to be served warm.
Baked Mixed Fruit
29 oz. can sliced peaches
2 - 11 oz. cans mandarin oranges
20 oz. can pineapple tidbits
16 oz. can dark sweet pitted cherries
1/2 cup butter
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 or 2 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla
Drain fruit, reserving the pineapple juice plus enough of another juice to measure one cup.
Stir together the cup of reserved juice with cornstarch and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Cook until thickened (this is only a few minutes).
Remove from heat, stir in butter, then extracts and cinnamon.
Gently toss fruit together in a 2 quart baking dish.
Pour cooked mixture over the fruit and fold in until well mixed.
Bake in an preheated 325° oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm.
We had this on Christmas morning, along with pigs in blankets, bacon and cheese fritatta and monkey bread.
