It’s that time of the year again. The time where I am so DONE with winter!! All I want to do is throw open the windows-get my hands dirty in the gardens-and kick my feet up on the back deck and soak up some sun!! Thankfully, the weather report for next week looks pretty promising. I can handle 40-50 degree temps! Oh yes I can! Spring is coming-and I can hardly wait! But until it is officially here-I’m doing all I can to bring a little ‘Spring time’ into our home!
Nothing says ‘SPRING’ to me- quite like the smell of cherry blossoms-and the taste of this YUMMY Cherry Crumble!
One bite of those tart cherries and buttery crumble topping-with just a hint of cinnamon, takes me back to my FAVORITE vacation spot- Door County, Wisconsin. I LOVE everything about Door County!! The antique shops-the quaint cafe’s-the people-and yes, the FOOD!
Especially cherries-and you can find them EVERYWHERE. You can even pick them yourself at many of the orchards. Which is what I did. But even better-was tasting all the different cherry recipes that were offered at almost every restaurant during the summer months. One of my favorites was Cherry Crumble.
Unfortunately, cherries are not widely available this time of year- here in our neck of the woods. So, over the years I’ve had to improvise. Funny how a little ‘improvising’ can still taste OH SO GOOD!!!
Here’s the recipe! I hope you enjoy!
Blessings and hugs,
1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1 (21 ounce) can of cherry pie filling
Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Place half of crumb mixture into a 9″ pie pan. Pour cherry pie filling over crumb mixture. Top with remaining crumbs. Bake in oven for 40 minutes.
