Cherry-Cream Crumble Pie
Why I Love This Recipe
I got this recipe out of a magazine a few years back and I have made it a lot. The person who submitted it said it won her a blue ribbon, she also said she was a six-time Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist. I had no way to confirm this but the recipe sounded good and when I tried it I loved it.
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cans (15 ounces each) pitted tart cherries, drained
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cherries, sour cream, egg and extract; stir well. Spoon into the pastry shell. Bake at 400 F. for 20 minutes.
For topping, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over filling. Cover edges of crust to prevent overbrowning. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
