My sweet tooth got the best of me this weekend as it was a cloudy cold couple of days, and because I had a bad case of cabin fever I decided to bake.

When Sunday rolled around and I still had not baked anything, I decided this was the day I was going to fill the house with the beautiful aroma of something sweet and scrumptious baking in the oven.

Well, when I realized I didn’t have that much flour on hand, I had to think real hard and come up with something that would satisfy my cravings and not require too much flour.  I remembered I had some frozen pitted cherries in the freezer that I had bought at the Orchard this last summer. Quickly thinking of recipes I could use pitted cherries in, I landed on Cherry Crumble, it is a quick and easy recipe.

My sweet tooth wasn’t in the mood to wait a long time so I got out a baggie of cherries from the freeze, this equaled close to 21 oz. of cherries in juice, I put them in the sink in a bowl of warm water to thaw, while I tidied up the house.

By the time the house was tidy, the cherries had thawed , I preheated the oven to 375 and finally started baking.

There are two ways to make this Cherry Crumble, you can use canned cherries in juice or fresh cherries and simply thicken them with adding cornstarch as it tends to be a lot thinner than canned cherry juice.

Canned cherries are much sweeter than fresh/frozen cherries and provide a moister Cherry Crunch.

You simply add 1/2 the crumble topping in a small layer to the bottom of the baking dish, and put the cherries on top.

Prior to putting the pan in the oven , you add the remaining crumble mixture on top of the cherries.

This recipe is very easy and while it is baking in the oven, you have plenty of time to clean the kitchen or make dinner, or do both as the cooking time is 40-45 mins.

You will know the Cherry Crumble is done baking when the topping turns a light golden brown.

The hardest part of this recipe is having the patience, waiting for your bowl of fresh baked Cherry Crumble to cool down enough to eat!
