Cherry- Pecan Crumble
Cherry Pie Filling:
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. minute tapioca
  • 1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract 
  • 6 cups pitted tart red cherries 
  • 1 1/2 cups all- purpose flour

  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, cut into 1 inch slices
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans 
Heavy cream, whipped cream or ice cream

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, tapioca and nutmeg. Add the almond extract, cherries, combine thoroughly. Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes, then pour into a 9 x 13 inch greased baking dish.
  2. Make the topping: In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and butter with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the chopped pecans and spoon the topping over the cherry mixture, spreading it out evenly. Bake the crumble for 1 hour, or until it is bubbling and the top is golden.
  3. Serve slightly warm with heavy cream, whipped cream or ice cream.
