Almond Cherry Crisp




Yield 4 Serving

A fresh cherry filling topped with a delicious, crunchy, nutty layer of goodness! 


For the crisp topping:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking dish by spraying the bottom and sides with nonstick cooking spray. (I used a small cast iron skillet but you could also use an 8x8 baking dish, round pie pan, or 9 inch skillet.)
  2. To In a medium bowl, combine pitted cherries with honey, brown sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice and cornstarch. Add to prepared baking dish.
  3. To prepare crisp topping: combine the dry ingredients (sliced almonds, oats, brown sugar, almond meal, cinnamon, and salt). Add the cold butter* to the dry ingredients and combine till a coarse mixture remains. Use 2 knives to “cut in the butter”**
  4. Sprinkle Crisp mixture on top of cherries.
  5. Bake for 30 -35 minutes. The top will be golden brown and the cherry filling will be bubbly around the edges.


You could also CAREFULLY use a food processor to pulse the dry mixture with the cold, cubed butter, but try doing it by hand first!
