There's nothing I'd rather serve for Easter dinner or another springtime occasion than succulent baked ham. My recipe features a rub that add flavor to a meat plus a delicious cherry sauce with a hint of almond. -Lavonn Bormuth Westerville, Ohio

MY REVIEW

I made this for Easter for something different. In the past, my mom's cooked the traditional ham with pineapple and marachino cherries. This was fantastic! Even while I was carving it, I couldn't keep the family from grabbing pieces and chowing down. Then, adding the cherry sauce just topped it all off. So delecious! I was told by my mom that she is never cooking a ham again!

This is the first dish I made my boyfriend and it became his favorite (even raved about it 2 days after the meal!)

I used 2 tbs amaretto & pureed the cherries.

Got raves from the guests.
