And because I'd been browsing a few of my cookbooks that afternoon and remembered the blackberry crisp recipe I'd bookmarked in one of them.
I've really gotten into baking lately; I finally understand that baking mojo. It is quite therapeutic...soothing and calming.
Cherry Crispadapted from Nigella Express
2-3 cups bing cherries, pitted & halved
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup AP flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Mix the cherries, sugar, & cornstarch in a small but deep casserole dish.
- Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl, then sprinkle over the cherries.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
- Let cool just slightly before eating...you wouldn't want to scorch your tongue!
