How to Make Cherry Almond Crumble
Cherry Almond Crumble
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup cold butter 1 stick, cut into pieces
- 3/4 cup sliced almonds
For the filling
- 5 cups fresh cherries pitted and halved
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Make the crumble
- In a food processor, or in a large bowl using a pastry cutter, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, vanilla extract, almond extract and about 1/2 of the almonds. Add the butter pieces, pulse, or blend until the mixture is combined, and crumbly.
- Press 3 rounded tablespoons of the mixture into the bottoms of 9 wide-mouth 8 oz. jars.
Make the filling
- In a large bowl, mix together the halved cherries, sugar and cornstarch. Divide the cherry mixture among the jars.
- Mix the remaining almonds with the remaining crumble, and add 2-3 rounded tablespoons of crumble to each jar. Press crumble mixture down lightly to keep it in place.
- Place the jars (2 inches apart) on a baking sheet, and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops of the crumble start to turn golden brown.
- Enjoy crumble warm, or cool. Top with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream if desired.
I absolutely love all desserts that mix chocolate and mint!
Wow, I would have to say pie. Among the many choices in that category, I’m not sure I could choose. Maybe lemon meringue, pumpkin, or mixed berry.

Every dessert is my favorite dessert! Baking is such a passion for me. I especially enjoy making and devouring a caramel apple upside down cake or anything that has chocolate it in. It’s so hard to pick just one!!
