Cherry Filling:

  • 3 pounds fresh cherries, pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter very cold, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart, 11X7 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Make the Filling: In a medium mixing bowl, toss cherries with almond extract together. Gradually add sugar and cornstarch and toss until evenly coated. Set aside while you make the topping.
  • Make the Topping: In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, and quick cooking oatmeal. 
  • Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture,  until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of small peas. Fold in the almonds. 
  • Assemble: Give the cherry mixture another toss and pour it into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle topping evenly over fruit filling. Bake in the preheated oven, until the topping, is golden and the filling bubbles up in spots, about 55-65 minutes.
