Description

An almond crumb mixture is filled with fresh sweet cherries in this delicious crumb bar that is perfect for your next cookout or potluck.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Sugar, Divided
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 8 ounces, weight Almond Paste
  • 1 cup Cold Butter (2 Sticks)
  • 4 teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 4 cups Sweet Cherries, Pitted
  • ½ cups Sliced Almonds

Preparation

Mix together 1 cup of sugar, the flour, baking powder, salt, egg, almond extract and almond paste. Using a pastry cutter or a food processor on pulse, cut butter chunks into the mix. It should be crumbly. In a separate bowl, mix together remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, cherries.

In a 9×13” pan, press half of the crumb mixture in the bottom. Top with the cherry mixture. Spread into an even layer. Mix the sliced almonds into the remaining crumb mixture. Top the fruit with the crumb mixture in an even layer. Bake at 375º F for 45 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly before eating.

Serve warm (with ice cream) or store in the refrigerator and serve cold. They are delightful both ways.

Made these yesterday. I didn’t have almond paste so I used almond filling. I also used cherry pie filling and brown sugar. Very easy and tasty. Thanks for sharing.
